Hip hop parody CB4 follows a trio of two-bit rappers trying to make it in the rap game. After endless stalled attempts, the group finally strikes gold when they take on identities of a bunch of prison-bred lunatics out to shock anyone and everyone. The result is a machine-gun spoof on race and taste in popular music with sights set on pearl-clutching suburbanites, industry buffoons, wannabe rappers, furious afrocentrics, and psychotic gangsters.
