TONIGHT, The Rub Movie Night is back at Alamo Drafthouse, with Menace II Society! Last month we recorded a mix inspired by our first movie, Belly, and we were all set to do it again this month but we realized we already have two mixes which are perfectly suited for the night, from DJ Eleven (last week) and our brother Matthew Africa (R.I.P.), which we share with you today.
About the movie:
Released 25 years ago in May of 1993, Menace II Society was the directorial debut of the Hughes Brothers (twins Allen & Albert – directors of cult classic Dead Presidents). Set in it Watts, CA, Menace tells the story of Caine (Tyrin Turner) and O-Dog’s (Larenz Tate) struggles against the racism, drugs, and violence that gripped the LA area at the time. The film stars a pre-Fresh Prince Jada Pinkett and Samuel L. Jackson, as well as an amazing roster of West Coast rappers, including MC Eiht, Too $hort, and Saafir.
After the screening, join us for more music, dancing and drinking at the House of Wax!
