Rusty was the only one providing commentary. He was very sincere and even humble to a point. He did mention some background info on how he got the movie greenlighted and what he had to go thru to get it noticed. I think he did a great job and it kept my attention throughout.

A very chill, informative commentary provided by Rusty. Neat stories about capturing the rise of the fictional rappers "NWH!" A pretty bold move by the director, as he challenged the "street-cred" of himself and "Revenge of the Nerds'" Larry B. Scott. Describes the hip-hop climate at the time of the films' release, especially the unfortunate timing of "CB4" beating 'Fear' to the theatres. The comparisons to "This..is Spinal Tap" are obvious and Rusty goes to great lengths on that Mockumentary's influence, as well as the difficulty in making this film on a budget of $999,999. Also, the track and movie serve as a nice yearbook of music producers and young black actors/actresses from the early '90s.
