Summary:
Mike Epps is one of America's favorite and funniest people, but the path to fame was paved with opportunities to mess it up. Growing up in "Naptown" Epps found himself forced to hustle from an early age. Despite his mother's best efforts, Epps was drawn to a life of crime, but as he quickly discovered, stealing and dealing didn't really fit his sweet sensibilities. After several arrests and more than a few months in jail, Epps finally realized that he was an unsuccessful thug, and instead turned to the next most obvious career path: stand-up comedy. Heading first to New York, then all over the country, and finally to Hollywood, Mike Epps carved out a unique place in American comedy.
