When notorious gangsta rapper Dr. S. releases a controversial new CD, straight-laced senator Mary Ellen Sprinkle calls for a boycott of his record label.

Much to the upstanding citizen and media mogul Ben Feld's chagrin and surprise, he owns the label, a shock that sends him straight to the hospital.

Determined to help out her ailing father, stereotypical Jewish American Princess and Manhattan socialite Marci Feld takes matters into her own hands and tries to clean up Dr. S.' act in hopes of fielding an apology from the hardcore rapper.

Marci raps about fashion, takes the fast-talking ladies man to charity events where he woos her friends and other high society ladies, and wins over the attendees at his nightclub with interpretive dance.

Along the way, this unlikely couple falls in love despite valiant attempts by Dr. S.' girlfriend, Yolanda, to keep her man.
