4.0 out of 5 stars Doesn't this remind of something? March 18, 2003
Format:DVD
After watching the movie, you can figure out who they were talking about. Fazion Love was Suge Knight, Merlin wasw 2Pac, Rashaan Nall was BIggie, Toni Braxton was Faith and Sharissa was Lil Kim. The only person was missing was Puffy. If you know the story behind them and you have the movie.
Aside from that you have a very well done movie that shows how "fueds" can get started with simple mistakes. What makes the DVD worth getting is the Merlin Santana tribute. It's about the only one since he was a quick sentence in so called Black Magazines. The DVD is about hte only place where you will hear Merlin's rap skills since he was notable to release any of his four rap albums before his death.

4.0 out of 5 stars ONE OF THE BEST HIP HOP MOVIES January 6, 2004
Format:DVD
THIS WAS A MADE FOR TV MOVIE THAT AIRED IN 2002 ON VH1. WHEN A FEUD BETWEEN TWO RAPPERS START, A DEADLY EAST COAST VS. WEST COAST STREET WAR ALSO STARTS. YOU ALREADY KNOW THIS IS A FICTIONAL VERSION OF THE INFAMOUS BIGGIE VS. TUPAC FEUD. RASHAAN NALL AND MERLIN SANTANA DO GREAT AS THE FEUDING RAPPERS. ANY FAN OF RAP MUSIC SHOULD CHECK OUT THIS MOVIE. TONI BRAXTON AND SHARISSA ALSO HAVE ROLES IN THIS MOVIE.

4.0 out of 5 stars Solid Movie February 9, 2003
By Judith
Format:DVD
The only reason I purchased this film is because my daughter is the biggest Fan of Toni Braxton, but I must admit that the movie was rather better than I expected it to be, but it still was not something that I would give 2 thubs up to. The movie starts off kind of slow, but in the end it picks up, to a very bad ending, where a video plays and the movie ends. I would rate this movie with a B-.

4.0 out of 5 stars Movie worth checking out December 30, 2002
Format:VHS Tape
Play'd is a story about two friends in a rap duo who become rivals after one decides to sign a solo deal with a shady record company owner. The movie is loosely based on the East Coast - West Coast rivalries that resulted in the death of 2Pac Shakur and The Notorious BIG. The movie has its corny moments but its definitely worth it, considering you get to see the late great Merlin Santana in one of his final performances. Actor Rashaan Nall who plays "Jaxx" was good as well and served as great eye candy being that he is incredibly sexy. I give this movie 4 stars.
