Synopsis[edit]

A flashback to the early life of Tanuk (Juvenile) shows life in the Magnolia projects in New Orleans. Local gangster Garr kills Tanuk's father over a debt of $2,000. Fast forward to the year 2000. Tanuk joins forces with Beatrice (Birdman), Chopper (B.G), and Teke (Turk) to meet with representatives of a drug cartel and purchase a large batch of cocaine. The film also contains scenes of everyday business in Magnolia with Iceberg Shorty (Lil Wayne) selling drugs. Teke & Iceberg Shorty are also seen robbing a jewelry store.
