NEW JERSEY DRIVE

In keepin with our tribute to the most influential year of our lives I couldn’t help but honor one of our favorite movies ever. Directed by Nick Gomez  NEW JERSEY DRIVE was one of the most controversial movies released in 1995. In fact, it was only released in select cities, and Worcester was not one of them. But we did not forget about it, I remember waiting to rent it from Main st video.That shit would always be rented out but thanks to the glorious invention of the dual deck VCR (we would never commit piracy or copyright infringement) Brotha men and I were able to watch this movie till we could repeat it word for word. This was the sickest movie available, next to” The Show” (real OG’s will remember that shit too) at the time. The film stars Sharron Corley, Gabriel Casseus, and Saul Stein. At the time, the city of Newark had the highest automobile theft rate in the country, and Newark mayor Sharpe James, refused to allow filming of New Jersey Drive within the city limits, so the filming was completed in the surrounding locations of Newark rather than Newark itself. With that being said, this movie had it all. From rockin the Carhart coats and timbalands to gettin harassed by the cops and ya moms wit your friends geekin on you for it lol this film has everything that made 1995 one of the best years period. Not to mention one of the best movie soundtracks to ever be released which Rev has already stated in his post back in November http://hulkhatetimetravel.com/2008/11/13/i-cant-forget-new-jersey/.

But in case you forgot here it is again. Their could not have been a better ending to this movie. Take a listen to Queen Latifah as she rips it for her home town as the credits roll. Simply perfect.
