Pretty bored of watching rappers stand in front of fancy mansions and flossing chains, but Gucci's movie inside a video is a house of mirrors: he's rapping in a theater while watching his own 3-D version of himself moving money in a Louie bag with some cigar-smoking mafia dudes, when the script flips and he's surreally rapping inside the movie. The fourth wall busts free among an embarrassment of riches. A word of advice for Gucci, though: if you ever get into acting, don't typecast yourself like a certain Curtis we may know. We'd like to see you in some sci-fi/apocalypse films a la Armageddon (in fact, you and Affleck would probably have great stage chemistry), or maybe as the leading man in an independent navel-gazing romance... you'd give new meaning to the term "mumblecore," heh.
