Poetic Justice (1993)

 

 

For his sophomore project, Singleton paired Janet Jackson and hip hop music icon Tupac in this film about two South Central denizens—battling personal tragedies—who take a road trip in a mail truck to Oakland. Legendary writer Maya Angelou was hired to write poetry for Janet, who played a hairdresser moonlighting as a poetess. Opening number one at the box office its first weekend, the film also starred Guy Torry and Regina King.
