Movie Info

One man's efforts to get ahead on the streets lead him into a life of danger in this hard-hitting urban drama from Roc-A-Fella Films, the production company run by top hip-hop artist Jay-Z. Beans (Beanie Sigel) is a member of a Philadelphia street gang who has had enough of his life of poverty. Determined to get ahead by any means available to him, Beans steps to the wrong side of the law and begins selling drugs. Forming a crew with his friends and fellow gangsters called the ABM ("All 'Bout the Money"), Beans and his partners soon become the new rulers of Philly's underground economy. But with success comes competition, and Untouchable J (Jay-Z) and Dame (Damon Dash), the leaders of an establish drug-dealing crew, decide the ABM are taking more than their share of the business, and begin retaliating with violence -- with both the ABM crew and Beans' wife as targets. State Property also stars Memphis Bleek, Omillio Sparks, and Sundy Carter.more

News & Interviews for State Property

Critic Reviews for State Property

All Critics (15) | Top Critics (6)

A film of empty, fetishistic violence in which murder is casual and fun.

Dallas Morning News
Top Critic

Basically a static series of semi-improvised (and semi-coherent) raps between the stars.

January 21, 2002
New York Post
Top Critic

Lacks the visual flair and bouncing bravado that characterizes better hip-hop clips and is content to recycle images and characters that were already tired 10 years ago.
