A sizzling, all-star cast—including Allen Payne (CB4), Jada Pinkett Smith (Collateral), Bookeem Woodbine (The Rock), Eddie Griffin (Undercover Brother) and Forest Whitaker (The Last King of Scotland)—deliver fiery, heartfelt performances in this inner-city Romeo and Juliet story from the producer of New Jack City. Jason and Joshua are two brothers left fatherless by a family fight that spun out of control. Trying to make good and get off the slick ghetto streets of Houston, Jason (Payne) finds a source of inspiration in a beautiful and sexy girl named Lyric (Pinkett Smith), whose dreams of fleeing the city together give him hope for a better life. But when Joshua (Woodbine) turns to a life of crime and drugs, Jason finds he’s torn between his love for Lyric and his obligation to family. And as the time comes for Jason to leave, he finds that Joshua will stop at nothing to see that he stays…even if the fight to keep him rivals the one that killed their father. Featuring an explosive soundtrack, Jason’s Lyric delivers an urgent sense of sexuality and passion that underscores the high stakes of its suspenseful, shocking conclusion. Produced and Directed by Doug McHenry (New Jack City, House Party 2) and co-starring Naughty by Nature’s Anthony “Treach” Criss.
