5.0 out of 5 stars Great documentary of exploitation! July 22, 2013
Verified Purchase
There's nothing surprising here. The familiar story of artists who are drawn into a maze of deceit and exploitation only to find themselves on the outside looking in and badly in debt. The interesting twist is how individuals tried to market themselves in false names to the degree that they actually believed in the deceptions! Very well crafted and amazingly revealing! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

4.0 out of 5 stars All Recording Artists should see this DVD October 24, 2013
By Teecha
Verified Purchase
I was hip to some of the things mentioned in the documentary, like musicians calling home needing cash because they hadn't gotten paid, but getting the full story straight from the headliners Master Gee and Wonder Mike of how they were treated and their struggle to regain their brand, their ability to make a living, their names...priceless!

4.0 out of 5 stars Never trust words but trust peoples ways May 5, 2014
Verified Purchase
I enjoyed the DVD, but its the same old scam that the entertainment industry always seems to pull on young talent that hasn't learned the financial end of the game, you hate to see this happen but there is an old saying that goes don't run around with your nose all snotty, if you don't know something you ought to ask somebody. I was glad to see them not give up, and they kept on till they got their names , but they also took the song GOOD TIMES without permission. A good DVD on what not to do in the recording industry

5.0 out of 5 stars My Homies February 9, 2014
Verified Purchase
I enjoyed purchasing this item due to the fact I grew up with "Master Gee" and "Wonder Mike" and others in the film. It was sad to see how money corrupts the best of relationships and even from the sandbox. It is a very important film especially for aspiring musicians and actors and anyone else involved in the entertainment business. A textbook case of concentrating on the "show" and not the "business" of show business. Always retain the best entertainment lawyer you can prior to signing any contracts no matter how desperate your current situation is financially.
