Born Shawn Carter in New York City in 1970, Jay-Z enjoys the kind of rags-to-riches success that few can only dream of. Driven by raw ambition and tremendous talent, Jay-Z started his own record company, Roc-A-Fella Records, in 1995, when, as a struggling artist, he couldn't convince any music labels to give him a recording contract.

This hip-hop comedy from Roc-A-Fella's film division stars Beanie Siegel, Memphis Bleek, and Jay-Z as part of a crew of thieves who take an inept young upstart under their wings. Unfortunately, the crew itself isn't exactly a highly polished operation, and the crew's capers result in comic mishaps far more often than actual thefts.
