28 Days of Black Cinema: Day 7


Brown Sugar (2002)

Starring: Sanaa Lathan, Taye Diggs, Queen Latifah, Mos Def

Directed by Rick Famuyiwa

Written by Michael Elliott

"When did you fall in love with Hip Hop?" - Syd

Dre (Taye Diggs) and Syd (Sanaa Lathan) have been best friends since childhood. Their lives and relationship is deep rooted in the love of Hip Hop. A series of events happen that make Dre question his life choices thus pushing him closer to Syd, who has fallen in love and plans to get married.

This is a love story of three kinds. Friendship. Romance. Culture. Syd gives a great breakdown of the difference between Rap and Hip Hop, which I agree with, wholeheartedly. This is a sweet and funny movie that will have you reminiscing about the time you first fell in love with Hip Hop.

PLUS...the soundtrack is dope.
