A 21-year-old aspiring hip-hop star from the Bronx is forced to put his career on hold when a gang of local thugs threatens his life and he is forced to seek refuge with his estranged father in Puerto Rico in this musical drama from producer Jennifer Lopez. Rob (Omarion Grandberry) is a New York City rapper who has gotten into hot water in his hometown, and now must flee to Puerto Rico. Upon arriving at his father's home in the Caribbean commonwealth, Rob immediately forms a bond with his half-brother, Javi, who introduces his distant sibling to the seductive sounds of Reggaeton. Rob and Javi's outwardly divergent musical tastes ultimately blend to form a unique new brand of hip-hop-flavored reggae, and they soon begin to gain a loyal following that ultimately leads them both back to New York City. Yet despite Rob's growing popularity in the music industry, the gangsters back in the Bronx are still hell-bent on revenge, and willing to gun him down at the first chance they get. Is Rob's newfound status as a high-profile musical innovator enough to make him bulletproof, or could it be that he's more vulnerable than ever now that he's up on-stage for all the world to see?

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: It's the subtexts -- about minority kinship and Hispanic self-actualization -- that resound. If only its fable (and leading man) didn't keep getting in the way.
Rotten: ...a music-fueled drama with far less substance than most CD liner notes.
Rotten: Could have used more music.
Rotten: Instead of trying to find the heartbeat of reggaeton, the movie resorts to teen conventions, banking that its target audience -- Latino teens, who don't often see themselves onscreen -- won't know enough to demand better.
it was okay but the ending was stupid and i thought because Omarion was in it, he would do a better job, it wasnt all that
It Was Ok
It's not as good as Step Up or Save The Last Dance, but the music was hot, I might still buy it. Omarian also made a music video for Cut off Time whitch is a song on the soundtrack, it's featuring Kat Deluna. I hope iTunes will get it, it's on fire!
This seems like a really good movie and i cant wait to see it!
