Albert, a.k.a. MC Gusto, is the leader of the hot new rap group CB4 (short for "Cell Block 4"). The trio of CB4 - MC Gusto, Stab Master Arson and Dead Mik - are living large as their hardcore albums blow up the charts. Their rise to fame takes an unfortunate turn when they're caught up as subjects of a documentary by corny filmmaker A. White and victims of a political campaign by Republican Virgil Robinson. And when the reality hits the streets that these cats are just three middle-class kids posing as ex-con thugs, their world of money, power and respect takes a beat down in the most embarrassing and ludicrous ways. This outrageous "rapumentary" is packed with cameos by real O.G. rap legends like Ice-T, Flavor Flav, and Easy E, and studded with special guest appearances by Tommy Davidson, Halle Berry and Shaquille O'Neal.
