Classic movie. LOL@scene when 2Pac said to Leon, you ain't the muthafucking man no more. I'm the one. Shit has changed. It's a new day bro. If you can't clean up your act, i suggest you raise the fuck up. Get the hell outta dodge or get caught up LOL. LOL@tight pants Leon was wearing when he played in the basketball tournament at the end hahahahahahahahahaha. 2Pac said to the ref about Leon, he ain't in uniform LOL. I don't think too many people remember Wood Harris in this. He had me laughing when he told Duane Martin and Marlon Wayans, i don't care what Birdy said and i don't give a damn about this ho ass nigga in the back(he was talking about Duane Martin LOL). I will bury the both of you muthafuckas. You better start listening and pay attention. Pull over. Marlon said i thought we was going to the spot. Wood said i said pull over. Marlon said for what? Wood yelled and said pull over and Marlon pulled over LOL. Wood got out the truck and beat up 2 drug dealers who owed him money and he said to Duane and Marlon, did ya'll see that? I'm a muthafucking soldier LOL. Now drive. Marlon said you need a role model, a hug or something hahahahahahahahaha.
