A Dangerous Love Triangle Just Came Full Circle.
|A tragedy-filled story of a young great gatsby-ish hip-hopper named summer g who falls for a middle-upper class sistah while in college. After she rejects him for a fellow social climber, summer g spends 10 years building a hip-hop empire, and then moves to the hamptons where he finds the object of his affection.|
Editor's NoteAlthough it might sound unlikely, G brings F.Scott Fitzgerald's THE GREAT GATSBY to the hip-hop generation, with a thoroughly modern adaptation of the literary classic. Summer G (Richard T. Jones) seems to have everything a hip-hop mogul could possibly want after building a career for himself as a rap producer. But he still pines for Sky (Chenoa Maxwell), his former lover who he let slip through his fingers. Cleverly locating the film in the Hamptons, where many hip-hop millionaires have taken up residence, Christopher Scott Cherot's film has a glossy MTV sheen to it, but still manages to stir the emotions that lie at the core of Fitzgerald's novel.
