All Hassan Johnson!
17 February 2009 | by cuevasf71See all my reviews

I Tried is cool little urban joint about what if these rappers weren't discovered by OG Eazy E a man way a head of his place and time in music. It goes in to that type of deal. It is crazy when you watch a movie and see one actor totally crush it. Hassan Johnson is a drug boss that does not play. Director Rich Newey should have beefed up his part major. You don't leave a player like Hassan sitting on the bench. You get him out there to make a big play for ya. I'm with another poster that Hassan and Mimi Moss brought major heat to this joint.

Out of Bone thugs n harmony Wish Bone was best actor going. You can believe that all day and night. Mimi Moss happened to play his wife. I liked his story of being a laborer that had to pick up dead animals. Not feeling it he gets pulled towards the streets again. Don't rent I Tried buy it.
