It blows my mind that John Singleton was only 23 when he was nominated for Best Director for his work on one of the best movies of the s, Boyz N The Hood. Man, Ice Cube has come a long way from the jheri-curled, angry rapper that landed a role as Doughboy. Most impressive, to me, is that Cube wrote the hilarious Friday movies, as well as the underrated All About the Benjamins. His most recent success? Straight Outta Compton has some serious critical acclaim. His performance in Boyz is arguably the best out of all cast members, and he followed it up with some impressive performances in As Good as it Gets and especially Jerry Maguire , for which he received an Academy Award. He ended up marrying his high school sweetheart and has three children with her, and hopefully his awesome portrayal of Nicky Barnes in American Gangster is a sign of things to come and a return to glory, not a break from the norm. And last night he was OJ Simpson.

This was Ice Cube and Morris Chestnut's film debut. After Tre gets involved in a fight at school, his teacher calls Reva and informs her that although Tre is rather intelligent, he is immature, aggressive, and lacks respect for classmates and adults alike. On the night of Tre's arrival, he hears his father shooting at a burglar who tried to rob the house. The following day, Tre reunites with childhood friends Darrin "Doughboy" Baker, Doughboy's maternal half-brother Ricky, and Chris, their mutual friend. The next day, Chris takes the group into another neighborhood to view the decaying corpse of a murdered gang member. Doughboy is beaten up, but the ball is returned to him by another Crip member.
