Shottas is a 2002 film about two young men who participate in organized crime in Kingston, Jamaica and Miami, Florida. It stars Spragga Benz, Ky-Mani Marley, and Wyclef Jean and was written and directed by Cess Silvera. Despite its low budget, the movie employs an engaging storyline and the distribution of an unfinished bootleg made it a cult favourite long before its official release by SONY Pictures in 2006.

Shottas is the rawest Jamaican gangster movie ever! Fuck Belly
Jamaican slang term for gangster, originally from the term "shot callers."
From the movie of the same name: "Spread the word, top shottas are back." "Hey Biggs, tell your security I'm a shotta by blood, not by relation."
