Career criminal Youngblood Priest wants out of the Atlanta drug scene. His team must now organise the biggest money heist so they will never have to 'hustle' again. The stakes are high as they ramp up sales, but one small blunder can threaten the whole operation before he can make his exit. Visionary music video producer Director X takes the helm behind the lens to shift the 1972 original film's setting from urban Harlem to modern-day Atlanta. The film stars Trevor Jackson (Youngblood Priest), Jennifer Morrison (Detective Mason), Michael Kenneth (Scatter) and Lex Scott Davis (Georgia). The official soundtrack is curated by Future and features 13 new and previously released songs, with guest appearances by Rick Ross, Miguel, Lil Wayne and Young Thug.
