As I shoot the gift, MCs stand stiff,
while my rhymes stick to you like Skippy and Jiff...
One of my all-time favorite Hip Hop flicks is 1992's 'Juice' (many would say why is that a "Hip Hop" flick? The main character is plays a DJ, Hip Hop icon debuted his acting career in the film, the soundtrack is 90% Hip Hop, and there are cameos galore from EPMD, Special Ed, and more. So yeah, it's a Hip Hop movie.)
So it raised my eyebrow yesterday when Jermaine Hopkins, who played "Steel" in the movie (quick, what was "Steel's" real name in the movie?) was arrested for 300 pounds of marijuana. That's Hefty bag size right there. I guess we know why he was a bigger dude with the munchies of 300 pounds of chronic.
The question is did Hopkins go like his character in 'Lean On Me' when Principal Joe Clark was asking him if he smoked crack? Or did he cry in the questioning room like in 'Juice' when they were grilling him about who killed Mr Quilas?
