Menace II Society (1993)

With the rise of "hood films" in the early '90s, Allen and Albert Hughes debuted this gritty look inside the life of a Watts, California, teen caught in the violent grip of thug life. This unflinching look at a Black male navigating a brutal existence of drug dealing and gun violence became a box-office hit. On the 20th anniversary of this ghetto classic, here's a snapshot of the cast who woke Main Street up to the new volatile face of Black urban America.
