Movie Review • John Singleton held nothing back in his feature directorial debut of showing the world what life was like being raised in South Central LA. Bringing in a star studded cast of Angela Bassett, Laurence Fishburne, alongside the breakout roles of Ice Cube, Nia Long, Cuba Gooding Jr. and Morris Chestnut. This film was destined to be one of the many classic movies of the 90’s.

From the gems Trey’s dad dropped in almost every scene, to one of the most memorable scenes in culture history between Trey & Ricky. Boyz N the Hood left it’s mark on the culture & on our hearts. If you don’t scream out “RIIICCKKKKAAAYYY” each time you watch it, then what are you doing with your life?

  1. Singleton was a visual genius. He pushed the boundaries of stereotypes and forced people of all colors to see the world differently. This film was one of the most important films of my childhood and one of the films that truly emphasized the importance of storytelling with purpose. It also engrained a desire in me to speak truth and to tell stories that mattered. And you’re right about the scene with Trey and Ricky. It still hits hard all these years later.
