In the 90’s, people were enamored by gun-toting flicks. Movies that captured the plight of African Americans in the hood resonated with that demographic because it was everyday life. The struggle. The violence. The thought of living destitute in a crime-riddled neighborhood was a sad reality for most. Several movies were able to seamlessly capture those elements, one being Menace II Society. The movie dropped in 1993 and featured some very notable actors who used this movie to catapult themselves to bigger and better flicks. See for yourself.
