Boyz n The Hood (1991)

 Much like the movie in question, this podcast is rated R.

Boyz N The Hood, made by John Singleton in 1991, was the story of three friends -- played by(from left) Morris Chestnut, Cuba Gooding, Jr. and Ice Cube – growing up in South Central Los Angeles.

The 27th edition of the Next 100 Project takes us into inner-city Los Angeles. John Singleton’s debut is a “suburban war film” (compliment) and he directs some tremendous performances (big compliment). Cuba, Cube, Chestnut, Fish and Bassett couldn’t be any better. Powerful flick. Order from our sponsor Sparkplug Coffee, put on your mustard-coloured shirt and dig into the Hood!
