Editors Note
Note Although 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.

ReviewSource Chicago Sun-Times
Review The question recycled through the movie (and its advertising) is, "Does hip-hop have heart?" Summer G certainly has one, and so does Sky, although she's not sure what it's telling her. In the classic form of the story, the narrator watches as the hero tries to regain the heart of his lost love, while her brutal husband mistreats her and his mistress. In "G" those functions are spread more widely among additional characters, so that A has a way of leading to C while B loses a place in line. The ending of Gatsby is inevitable. The ending of "G" is arbitrary and melodramatic.
