Boyz N Da Hood
Boyz N The Hood is based on a young boy sent to live with his father after his mother gave up on him. The child grew up to be a respectable young man, but Crenshaw wasn’t easy. The soundtrack featured records like “Growin Up In The Hood” by Compton’s Most Wanted and “Me And You ” from Tony! Toni! TONE!.
Now this film right here is what some might call a hood comedy romance. The movie is based off a high ranking lawyer falling for an everyday fly girl while engaged, and features a young Halle Berry. If you haven’t seen Strictly Business it’s a must-watch, featuring music like “You Called & Told Me” by Jeff Redd and “You Remind Me” by Mary J Blige.

Ultimately, he agrees to play for their team in a money tournament, but has a change of heart. The soundtrack had hit records like “Anything” from SWV “Regulate” by Nate Dogg .
