What was it like in the heyday of the Hip-Hop video vixen? Enter Tangie's world and find out how to master the art of deceit.  Sex, drugs, lies and video tape all dwell in the shadows of Hip-Hop. It's a glamorous and alluring world that can blind its participants to certain truths. This euphoric illusion, which is filled with money, women, sex, and power, is also deceiving. You start to believe that the fame will last forever, the people around you are really your friends, and the scandalous woman at your side really loves you for the person that you are. Stardom can become dangerous for the naIve souls who rise to success without armor. Tangie is the hottest thing to hit the video scene. She's young, sexy, and dangerously appealing. Where most are just pretty to look at, Tangie is also witty, quick tempered, and sassy. She slithers her way into the hearts of many rappers, and into the wallets of even more. Her latest victim is Hip-Hop's newest sensation, Tay'von "Too Fine" Miller. Tay'von is told by his record label that he needs a better-looking woman on his arm because the public will deem his plus-sized girlfriend unworthy of a rising star. Thinking he's found his perfect victim, he pulls Tangie into his world, hoping to use her for her looks, only to get rid of her when he is done. But he has highly underestimated her. Her charm is as hypnotic as a snake charmer, and as strong as the magic of a voodoo priest. Once she has cast her spell, she is sure to bring any man or woman to their knees. Tangie has no chill and shows no mercy to people like Shamika, the spiteful girlfriend of equally talented but not as successful rapper Black Dialect. She will stop at nothing to secure her lifestyle, even if that means shaking hands with a record label owner who Tay'von has proclaimed a sworn enemy. Carmello wants Tay'von to sign to his record label, and Tangie wants to reach her ultimate goals: money, fame, and revenge! Together they hatch a plan that will give them both what they want. What will happen when Tay'von, his bodyguard, the sexy R&B tour mate Amira, and Carmello all fall under Tangie's spell? Death, debauchery, and deceit. Now, if only everything would go as planned.
