Very short. Not very interesting. New Jack's other shoots are much better.
Review Of Gangstas Shoot Interview
6/28/2009 11:28 AM
This was interesting because we got to see New Jack and Mustafa together and to see how New Jack would answer questions after some of the things he had said about Mustafa in his past shoots. In past shoots New Jack said he got rid of Mustafa when Mustafa started to try to outdo New Jack in the ring. He also has said that a broom could do Mustafa's job. BUT, on this day, with Mustafa sitting next to him, New Jack was much more respectful and the answers as well as his tone changed some. It would have been interesting to show Mustafa those specific comments, maybe videotape them together watching New Jack saying how a broom could do Mustafa's job from a previous New Jack shoot, and then see how Mustafa reacts with New Jack right next to him. See, New Jack is very entertaining, but he talks a lot, he says a lot of things, and depending on what day you talk to him, he will have very different answers to the same questions. Incidentally, this looks like the first shoot that New Jack isn't on coke or under the influence of some substance. New Jack says he has a bad heart now and he has gained a very noticeable pot belly. Weight gains often happen to people after quitting coke, so New Jack may be taking his heart condition seriously. I hope so. If you want to see New Jack angry and saying a lot of outrageous things such as wishing death upon people, this might not be the shoot interview for you. But if you want to see how New Jack acts clean and sober and in the presence of Mustafa, who also has some interesting things to say, this is worth buying. New Jack has already been interviewed so many times that it is getting difficult to come up with interesting questions that the RF crew hasn't already asked him. It was good to see New Jack look genuinely content and to see that he hasn't turned into a bitter old ring veteran. He doesn't seem to have held on to grudges and let them keep him from enjoying life.
