Cassandra Rivers and Leila Aponte are so different, it took
a catfight in their junior high school locker room to cross
their paths. Since then they have been two sides of the same
coin, bonded by their passion for hip hop and their shared
dream of becoming recording artists. Although Leila craves
fame and Cassandra prizes her artistic freedom, the duo of
Fatal Beauty and Sabrina Steelo remain true to their dream
and their friendship. That is, until gangsta rap mogul
Gregory ''G Double D'' Downs comes along and splits the duo
by signing Leila to his label Explicit Content. Stung by the
betrayal, Cassandra struggles to push forward as a solo artist.
But when Leila's career seems to fizzle as quickly as it
exploded, G Double D courts Cassandra. Despite rumors about
Explicit Content's financial woes, shady dealings and
self-destructive artists, Cassandra finds herself seduced by
his promises. Just when it seems that Cassandra will have
her cake and eat it, too, she learns the truth about
Explicit Content and the threat it poses to Leila and every
other pretty yet lonely young woman seeking the fleeting
validation of a gilded industry. Cassandra must decide just
how much she is willing to compromise her ideals to realize
her dreams, and the wrong decision can cost her much more
than her career.
