Watching this trailer and thinking back to when I first saw this movie, I can't help but wonder how in the hell I managed to see this movie at such a young age. This was back when Hollywood wasn't so afraid to make a rated R flick and was happy with the big money they used to bring in.

"New Jack City" was most definitely a hard taught lesson about karma that gave a helluva inside look at what the crack game was like in the late 80's early 90's. Not even the money making film "American Gangster" kept it as real as this movie did. "Am I my brother's keeper," "Sit yo five dollar ass down before I make change," "Rock a bye Grandpa" and that's not even half of the lines of memorable dialogue from this gangsta infused classic.

Supposedly they're coming out with a sequel (typical Hollywood) but here's to hoping that it goes straight to DVD so it doesn't mess up the legacy of this classic moment in black cinema.
