    Not I know that a lot of people on the Hype don't like hip-hop, but there are some that do. So, for anyone who's seen any, what do you think was the best movie that had anything to do with hip-hop?

    I personally like the old-school hip-hop movies like Krush Groove and Beat Street.

    I think Krush Groove is perhaps the best hip-hop movie. The array of talent in that movie is awesome.

    I also liked the first Breakin' movie. Never really could get into Beat Street. Old school is definitely the best.

    Juice
    Hustle & Flow.

    8 Mile was pretty good too, but nothing to the ones above.

    I'm curious, by Hip-Hop movie I thought we were just discussing films that dealt with hip-hop on some level, like Krush Groove, Beat Street, Juice, Hustle & Flow, or Get Rich or Die Tryin'?

    I mean, if you're talking about 'hood pics, then you've got to go with Menace II Society, New Jack City, Dead Presidents, and Boyz In the Hood. Scarface is honorary.
