New Jack City, the 1991 crime thriller film which starred Wesley Snipes, Ice-T, Allen Payne, Chris Rock and Judd Nelson, turns 25 years old today. Feeling old yet?
We recently compiled a list of "The 10 Best Hip Hop Movies Of The 90s" and you guessed it, "New Jack City" made the list.
Before rappers were making a living off of making songs about selling crack, drug dealers were doing just that in real time and infesting their own communities with the tragic aftermath. New Jack City went beyond the realm of a police crime drama and tackled the underbelly of a crime syndicate that would later go on to be immortalized in rap music to this very day (Cash Money Brothers, Nino Brown, The Carter, etc).- HipHopDX
