"Baller Blockin", a movie review

"Baller Blockin" (2000, Cash Money Millionaires)

Filmed at New Orleans, this movie presents a realistic story describing society's corruption in the so-called "ghettos" across the USA.
Elements contained in the story include the CIA-Cocaine connection, and the actual motives for police infiltration of narcotic cartels. 
The character Tanut represents the life story of many New Africans born during the 1970s and the pacification of rebellious communities using narcotics.
The portrayal of a young Black couple's relationship serves as an allegory for the current situation of the New African Nation.
