Variant title At head of title: Hughes Brothers
Abstract Albert and Allen Hughes turn their documentary eye to the world of street pimps in this 1999 Sundance Film Festival Documentary Competition entry. The Black urban pimps interviewed reveal their world and their secrets in a film that is about power. We watch as they discuss their business, including percentages, lifestyles, stealing "ho's", and the Player's Ball. These men exude charm and charisma and boast rock star status in their communities. People are lured by the glamour and money, only to be used as commoditieis and tossed out once they have passed their prime. Also traces the history of the street pimp from the 20's to the present, with particular emphasis on the 70's pimp.
