Trailer Park | A Day in the Life

23 07 2009

This is what we have been reduced to, an entire movie set to rap. Former Onyx member, Sticky Fingaz headlines this violent look at “A Day in the Life.”

The film takes the audience on a wild journey through one day of an intense street war between two rival crime families. Stick’s (Sticky Fingaz) clan is the underdog of the two families that is pushed into the war by Black (Faizon Love) who is the head of the more powerful crime family. Black’s family draws first blood by raiding one of Stick’s drug houses and killing two of his men. From that point on, Stick struggles with the moral dilemma of either calling off his life of crime or seeking revenge and continuing the ongoing feud. Stick’s decision becomes even more complicated when his girlfriend breaks the news that she’s pregnant.

The word is out that Black has put a contract out on Stick’s life and on top of all his problems, two detectives are now hot on his trail. Stick decides to flee the country with his girlfriend but before boarding the plane, a vicious gun battle ensues and no one knows who will remain standing when the smoke clears.

Film stars Mekhi Phifer, Omar Epps, Michael Rapaport, Fredro Starr, Malinda Williams, Bokeem Woodbine and Clarence Williams III.

While we would applaud Sticky for his creativity, dude how many stories in the hood should we be subjected to? Furthermore, there are several high-profile rapper/actors that would make this a more tangible project (Nas, Eminem, Ludacris and Mos Def immediately come to mind).

What can you say when even the trailer is delivered in rap? Not since the ending of Mario Van Peebles’ ridiculous ending in “Rappin'” have we laughed as hard during a trailer. If the trailer is any indication, the in-your-face violence may be a tad over the line.
