    Anything parallel to the culture

    get rich or die tryin is up there

    there’s also an argument to be made for uncut gems being a hip hop movie, one of the best at that

    More of a comedy than a true tale of hip hop but I f--- with it heavy.

    Same goes for this

    Get Rich or Die Tryin, Notorious, and ATL are my personal favorites

    I'll say 8 Mile before somebody else inevitably does

    Also this:

    My most controversial opinion is:
    Get Rich or Die Tryin’ > 8 Mile

    How High is great. The Wash is pretty funny for what it was, also the soundtrack bumps. Friday is classic if you consider that a hip hop movie

    Bodied was a good movie. Nothing spectacular but a nice watch. Check out Roxanne Roxanne if you haven't.

    Not a movie but I just finished the Wu-tang: An American Saga series on Hulu and really enjoyed it. If you’re a Wu fan then it’s a must watch. Also has some Wire vibes.

    Above the Rim? Juice?

    Also, feel like Prison Song is underrated but havent seen it a looooong time.
