Boyz N the Hood (1991)
For our 100th episode, Bobby Anthem joins Boxman and Anthony for a little rebranding. We’d like to welcome you to Hollywood Hangout. Not just a name change, but the start of new things to come. Keep listening for more as we go. And thanks to all of you who listen live and for all of you who support and download this show. We wouldn’t have made it 3 years and 100 episodes without all of you.
We breakdown Boyz N the Hood in tribute of the recent passing of John Singleton.
Tre (Cuba Gooding Jr.) is sent to live with his father, Furious Styles (Larry Fishburne), in tough South Central Los Angeles. Although his hard-nosed father instills proper values and respect in him, and his devout girlfriend Brandi (Nia Long) teaches him about faith, Tre's friends Doughboy (Ice Cube) and Ricky (Morris Chestnut) don't have the same kind of support and are drawn into the neighborhood's booming drug and gang culture, with increasingly tragic results.
