For this episode of GBW we get down with our 'gangsta' self. Thanks to the success of Boyz n the Hood there was a heavy influx of movies set in the 'hood - usually the mean streets of Los Angeles or New York City. We look back at this sub-genre and talk about our favourites and one's we think are worth checking out if you're interested in movies that mixed in such elements as drive-by shootings, ambitions that go beyond your environment, and drugs.

First we discuss what we've been watching including Chris' continued attempts to catch up on 2016 movies, a VHS trip to the Philippines, an urban legend-themed sequel, and much more!
