About the Movie

Comedy superstar Chris Rock (Lethal Weapon 4, New Jack City, Saturday Night Live) stars in CB4, an off-the-hook, hilarious look at the world of Gangsta Rap. Rock plays Albert, a.k.a. MC Gusto, leader of the hot new rap group CB4 (short for "Cell Block 4"). The trio of CB4 - MC Gusto, Stab Master Arson (Deezer D) and Dead Mik (Allen Payne), 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 (Chris Elliott) and victims of a political campaign by Republican Virgil Robinson (Phil Hartman). 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. CB4 is a hysterical stroll through the streets of hard-core hip-hop.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: CB4 promises sharper satire than it actually delivers. – Janet Maslin, New York Times, Jul 16, 2008

Rotten: Tamra Davis, a musicvideo director with the well-received feature debut Guncrazy on her resume, might have really had something here had she settled on any one of the many paths the movie starts down. – Variety Staff, Variety, Jul 7, 2010

Fresh: If your mood is loose and profane, if you speak hip-hop (or you just like hearing it) and if you think Rock is funny (he is), you'll be glad you checked this out. – Desson Thomson, Washington Post, Dec 17, 2007

Fresh: There's an unexpected innocence mixed in here that helps to blunt the pointed raunchiness (and political incorrectness) of the subject. – Hal Hinson, Washington Post, Dec 17, 2007

If you don't find this funny and you grew up in the 80's or early 90's check for a pulse

Some of Chris Rock's best work, even Chris Elliot is in this wonderful film. So funny it would be stupid to explain, if you grew up between 1980 and 1996 or so you will love it.

Great movie! :)

Wonderful movie, very funny!

I saw Ice Cube Shake his head I think I know why.
