Top Scene


You can take the gangster kid out of the ghetto, but the code of the streets remains in a young player’s heart no matter how bourgeois his trappings become. A relocated hip-hop hoodlum’s fancy inevitably returns to those thug-life adventures from Back in the Day (2005), that recent, romanticized past when he and his homeys were running the corners, tapping the ’hos, dissing punks, and tugging on their pricks through the crotches of their baggy trousers. Small consolation is to be found in taking up residence with your affluent, upper-middle-class black businessman father. When a brother from the hood is released from prison, the pull of rap-TV mythology is strong. Before the refugee from gangland knows what has happened, he has assisted in the murder of a preacher, fallen in love with the dead minister’s daughter, and been painted into a corner at the intersection of betrayal and Death Row without parole.
