VCR Of The Day: Heavy D In “New Jersey Drive”

The marriage of Hip Hop and film occurred in the early 80’s with Krush Groove. New Jersey Drive landed on screens in 1995 with the portrayal of inner-city youth wrapped in a “game” of car theft and joy rides gently nestled around corrupt police, disenfranchised politics and a self-identity complex folded in Hip Hop.

This clip features a cameo from a deeply inspiring Hip Hop icon, the late Heavy D (May 24, 1967 – November 8, 2011).
