This was definitely one of Nipsey's finest hours, next to his wonderful performance in the film version of THE WIZ. You will be missed, Nipsey.

The part's where he say s riiiigggggggggghhhhhhhhhhtttttt is classic. I still say it to this day..

Would I rather be feared or loved? Um.. both. I want people to be afraid of how much they love me.

Crap. I'm watching this movie right now and I was just thinking about how hilarious he is in this movie. There's that speech he makes at the big party and he's like, "I have to take all the credit for this, for it me (and only me) that..." etc. His delivery was so funny. And of course, "Riiiight."

That's one sad thing about watching older movies...you'll come across a performance you really like and then you look them up on IMDB and they've passed away. It's really depressing.

Nipsey was awesome. Great in this movie, and I always enjoyed it when he was on Match Game and the $25,000 Pyramid.

There were some good things in the movie and some pretty ordinary things, but Nipsey's performance was really neat. BTW I would never have guessed he was around 67/68 during filming.🐭
