Crackers – Chris Rock

Man I’ve been telling people about this song for years, I first heard this on Prince Paul’s Myspace page years ago and it’s still one of the funniest things Chris Rock has been apart of.  Now that he made the video it’s a wrap, enjoy Crackers!

Prom Queen/ Prom Feen (New Jack City)

pookie thanks

Sometimes a movie has so many good parts you have to strip them down and give them individual shine, at HHTT we major in that! Today I take a part from the urban classic New Jack City, Pookie lets his crack addicted female know where she ranks after she informs him of her former prom queen status. Oh and let us not forget what happens when the prom queen tires to deny Pookie some of that glorious turkeyView the classic review by Lex of New Jack City

HHTT @ The “Pookie Stairs” (Worcester)

We call these the “Pookie stairs”, I’m sure you know why. Well if you are not that enlightened we reference these stairs to the movie New Jack City, the part where pookie is running from Ice-T on his bike down those treacherous stairs. We may not live in New York but we all know Worcester got its gutter spots and this one HHTT had to acknowledge.men pull it down lex bakuplex look downrev hang

It’s Spring Again – Biz Markie

Everybody knows that nobody beats the Biz, today was a beautiful spring day up here in M.A. and I thought I should honor Biz Mark’s spring classic, It’s Spring Again.  Everytime I hear this record I crack up, don’t even get me started with the video either.  (biz dresses up like Rumplestiltskin)Biz live is always a treat, I saw him open up for De la Soul at the Palladium (worcester)  back in 2001 and Biz ate an entire hot dog with the bun in one giant bite!  Dude could give Joey Chestnutt and Kobayashi a run for their money if he wanted to I’m sure.  I remember Biz singing this Elton John classic on an old Beastie Boys compilation album I had when I was younger.  The video below is Biz performing his  awesome rendition of Bennie and the Jets on the Chris Rock show in the late 90’s. 

NEW JACK CITY

“Am I my brothers keeper?”  after watching this classic you cant help but come away with some of the best quotes.Wesley Snipes, Ice-T, Mario Van Peebles, Judd Nelson , Chris Rock and Allen Payne come together in this 1991 crime thriller. Based largely in part on the CHAMBERS BROTHERS GANG of Detroit, this film focused on the way the gang revolutionized crack cocaine industry. After forcefully taking over an entire apartment complex, the gang utilized the complex for distribution,sales,packaging and storage. The CMB or CASH MONEY BROTHERS portrayed by (snipes&payne) Nino Brown and G-Money, take over the carter projects similar to the way that the chambers brothers had done. With a vendetta against drug users and dealers,( Ice-T and Judd Nelson) Scotty Appleton and Nick Peretti begin to pay close attention to nino and his operations and decide to send former stick-up-kid and ex-crackhead Pookie (Chris Rock) undercover to infiltrate nino’s empire. With that being said this movie is the shit. rags to riches or the American dream whatever you want to call it this movie is gangsta. Ice-t sets the tempo lovely in the beginning of this film with new jack hustler laced over the chase seen with Chris Rock.

i must say it seems like chris rock had some practice or something because he makes an extremely  convincing crackhead….

and i have to honor snipes with one of the best movie quotes EVER.
