Unbelievably 2013 marks the 20th anniversary of the release of the classic hood film Menace II Society.
The movie – which was released on May 26th 1993 – was the directorial debut of twin brothers Allen and Albert Hughes who had originally hired Tupac Shakur and Spice 1 to play Sharif and Caine respectively, but they were later fired with Shakur being found guilty of assault and battery six months later for assaulting the director.
Despite pre-production controversy the film went on to commercial and critical success, winning the Best Movie award at the 1994 MTV Movie Awards and becoming a point of reference across the past two decades.
This week a Producer and DJ from Amsterdam namely THEprinceOFbeatz teamed up with Daily Movement to release a Westcoast Mega-Mix in celebration of this movie landmark!
The mix caught our ears and linked with the anniversary we wanted to share it with our readers! Listen to the full Mega-Mix and check the tracklist below!
