Baller Blockin' is a 2000 action and comedy film set in New Orleans 3rd Ward, specifically in and around the Magnolia Projects. It is a dramatic portrayal of the everyday trials and tribulations that arise on the hometown streets of the Cash Money Millionaires record label, New Orleans, Louisiana.
A flashback to the early life of the narrator/ protagonist 'Tanuk' (Juvenile) shows life in the Magnolia projects in New Orleans. He bears witness to his father's demise at the hands of local gangster Garr over a debt of $2000. Fast forward to the year 2000. Beatrice (Birdman aka Baby or #1 stunna) along with Tanuk, Chopper (B.G) and Teke (Turk) meet with representatives of a drug cartel and purchase a large batch of cocaine. We then see scenes of everyday business in Magnolia with Iceberg Shorty (Lil Wayne) selling some drugs.
