In the original 1998 film, Master P and Anthony Johnson star as Black and Blue, two small-time scam artists who sell boom boxes and broken TVs from their van. When a shipment of cellular phones gets to them by mistake, it doesn’t take long before the FBI and crime bosses are after them. Reprising their roles, I Got the Hook-Up 2 picks up with Black and Blue running a local restaurant.
When an incident results in their restaurant being shut down, Black needs to find some cash – fast. He gets several boxes of stolen phones to sell but the boxes also have a stash of Molly that belongs to the Colombian cartel. Now, he has to sell the phones and repay the cartel before time runs out.
