Right now I’m doing UK hip hop not to say that there is a difference but it’s just from UK rappers.
Gabrielle Union's highest grossing movies have received a lot of accolades over the years, earning millions upon millions around the world.Along the way, the working relationship between the blue collar dad and his uptown attorney grows into something more. He was charged with rape and sentenced to 8 years of prison at the age of 18 so that means he got out of jail at 26 years old. Unless, he was granted conjugal visits with Jennifer and she gave birth to Siera while Monty was in jail.This is a simple, touching story of two people trying to overcome their different backgrounds to find love, a down-on-his-luck man struggling to protect his children from abuse and neglect, and a community looking to purge itself from the criminals terrorizing their neighborhood.

I had done very well in England for a while and then when I got hear, three years ago, I was BROKE. It was just very tough for me so yeah, I can relate to that.

Idris: Everyday for me is a learning experience in terms of a comparison between my upbringing in England and here everyday. In England for me growing up it was bigger and more in your face.I’ve just been coming here for a long time so the transition is always a challenge in terms of characters I play because each one is different. No one has the same cultural background so there is always a challenge. His background as an actor gives him the ability to relate to us in a way that we feel comfortable.

This film deals with the criteria that Black women set for dating standards.The relationship hits a snag when the janitor's ex-wife comes back into his life and threatens to take away their kids. Do you have a criteria or standard and have you had a hard time finding that?We came away pleasantly surprised with what we saw.The problem that some moviegoers have with this film is quite simple: they're trying to be movie critics.
