Against The Odds

Who here likes to hear a story of succeeding against all odds? Okay, now who here loves a story of a person who totally fucks up their life and brings it back better and stronger than anyone could have imagined? Now, were you rooting for that individual to win or lose that extraordinary battle? Hahaha, it doesn’t matter actually! Okay, well if you haven’t noticed, the majority of Hollywood movies that make waves in the box office are the ones that carry a great story line such as those of overcoming great adversity!

It is quite a phenomenal and inspiring biography! in the movie he goes to jail and developing the skill of rapping and songwriting! His thoughts entirely shifted from wanting to hang in the streets, and it went to wanting more for his life! This caused rifts in relationships he had as a gang member, but now he didn’t care about that! He knew he was about to manifest something great, and all distractions didn’t matter anymore!

Curtis in his younger days a was crime boss who had nothing on his mind but controlling every corner block of Queens to distribute his illegal drugs through his network he had created. He was a gang banger would only understand $$$ and violence. The two go together so well, so what did you expect. As he became bigger and wiser in his line of work, he realized that the result would be a jail cell permanently, or death by the very streets he was raised in.
