This film is about djs/freestyle rappers trying to make it in a tough, competative business. It reminded me of "8 Mile", except not as good. And thats not because this movie didn't have A listers starring in it, it just didn't seem to have much backbone and real feeling. In fact, I nearly didn't bother watching "Bullet Boy" (another Ashley Walters film) because I was so unimpressed with Life and Lyrics. Fortunaley, "Bullet Boy" (which is kind of similar) is a good watch & I'd recommend skipping Life and Lyrics and just watching Bullet Boy instead.
