If you are from the D, then you know about young boys incorporated, and the Chambers brothers. Rick got famously for being a white boy.

You know what’s funny about this movie? They didn’t need to build a set of Detroit. They could film real life Detroit and it looks the same!

WBR wasn't even moving any major weight. Y.B.I., Chambers brothers, Pony Down all were pushing way more than him. Maserati Rick was killing them too. WBR is in prison not because of drugs. He is in prison because he had the drop on major politicians and Cops. He even had some knowledge on State police, Marshalls and Toledo cops. That's why he got nabbed. If it was only for the drugs he was pushing, he would have only did about 5-8. He was small time as far as the drugs were concerned.

Let's celebrate more trash culture for entertainment. Hopefully in twenty years they'll make a fascinating movie about the cool opioid dealers who destroyed white middle America. I have to run. There's a cool show on Netflix on about serial killers I'm going to check out!

I just saw the movie and I thought it was really great, but I will admit it was a bit uncomfortable when the scene where the 15 year old actor playing White Boy Rick gets seduced into sex with a woman who's clearly in her mid 20s. That was a bit creepy.

Grew up in the D. His crew had a video store in my neighborhood when I was a kid. Pops sent me to get a movie. Dude behind the counter wasn't paying attention and gave me the wrong movie case. I get home I'm like pops why is there white stuff in this case. 😁 Pops closes the case we walk back to video store pops hands dude the case like "you gave the wrong movie to my son" dude was like Sorry get any movies you want free" long story true story!
