20th Anniversary screening followed by Q&A with director Tamra Davis, screenwriter/producer Nelson George, producer Sean Daniel, and a special surprise guest, moderated by writer Touré.
"Straight outta Locash!" This is Spinal Tap for hip-hop heads, this spoof starring Chris Rock delivers a relentless satirical assault on rap culture of the early ‘90s, taking aim at everything from Death Row to De La Soul. Three Cosby kid wannabe rappers straight outta the 'burbs (Chris Rock, Allen Payne, Deezer D) decide to cash in on gangsta rap by jacking the O.G. personas of incarcerated thugs Gusto, Dead Mike and Stab Master Arson. Soon they're livin’ large with hits like “Sweat From My Balls”, with a "rapumentary" crew in tow (led by Chris Elliott's director "A. White"), but it's only a matter of time before the real-life Gusto (Charlie Murphy) breaks out of lockup to expose them. Featuring Phil Hartman as a PMRC cretin and cameos by everyone from Shaq to Eazy-E. “Monstrously funny” —Stephen Garrett, Time Out
