The Scarface of the late nineties, Belly is a gritty hip hop noir movie featuring music legends Nas, DMX, Method Man, and T-Boz, and a must see for any music loving New Yorker. This visually inventive New York based drama feels more like an extended music video which is due to the highly stylized direction of graffiti artist turned music director, Hype Williams. The story follows two friends as they struggle with survival in the harsh realities of NYC crime, touching on cultural inequalities, spiritual salvation and instinctual need for brotherhood. This movie will not only leave you wanting to update your wardrobe with some black light contacts and consider more mood lighting in your life, but introduces you to a classic created by some of hip hops greatest.
