    Not being a rap fan, I went into it without the sense of nostalgia that a lot of people did. And, I think, without nostalgia, it just isn't that great of a movie. It's ok, a bit disjointed. Most definitely not deserving of a best picture nomination.

    For instance, they never explained how Jerry was supposedly cheating Eazy. They never dropped hints that he was cheating him. Some broad just looked at some "papers" and declared it and so we're supposed to just buy it.

    Jerry was a Jew and Eazy was a colored, so of course Jerry was cheating him.
