Four Harlem friends – Bishop (Tupac Shakur), Q (Omar Epps), Steel (Jermaine Hopkins) and Raheem( Khalil Kain) – dabble in petty crime, but they decide to go big by knocking off a convenience store. Bishop, the magnetic leader of the group, has the gun. But Q has different aspirations. He wants to be a DJ and happens to have a gig the night of the robbery. Unfortunately for him, Bishop isn’t willing to take no for answer in a game where everything’s for keeps. Also features Samuel L. Jackson and Queen Latifah. This is Tupac Shakur's film debut, from long-time Spike Lee collaborator director Ernest Dickerson.
