New York Undercover – You Get No Respect

Monday, February 9th, 2009

Here’s Season 1, Episode 17 of 90’s popular police drama New York Undercover. Starring Malik Yoba as Det. J.C. Williams & Michael DeLorenzo as Det. Eddie Torres, NYU is notable for being the first police drama on American television to feature two people of color in the starring roles. Det. Torres  and Williams are two undercover detectives in New York City’s 4th Precinct who are assigned to investigate various crimes and gang-related cases. The program is also known for its hip-hop oriented targeted audience as it normally would feature a hip-hop soundtrack.

Aired on February 9, 1995, “You Get No Respect” focuses on the murder of a rapper killed at his group’s show, when after all, his partner might be behind the murder. This episode is mainly known for its major hip-hop appearances of Sticky Fingaz, Treach, Notorious Big, MC Lyte, Yo-Yo, Doctor Dre & Ed Lover. Notorious Big performs his 1994 hit “Juicy” at the end of the episode. The episode also features a new unheard track from Sticky Fingaz(as Khalil) titled “You Get No Respect”. It’s played throughout the episode but it hasn’t been released anywhere else. I’d like to hear a full version at it sounds like a track that could have been on “All We Got Is Us”. I love the part when when Sticky is rhyming!

Strapped (Starring Fredro Starr) (1993)

Saturday, December 6th, 2008

For the Hip-Hop heads, this movie is for you. If you like movies like Who’s The Man where you see a lot of Hip-Hop Cameos, “Strapped” features appearances by Busta Rhymes, Das EFX, Chi-Ali, Sticky Fingaz, Monie Love, Yo-Yo, Kool Moe Dee, and Fredro Starr as the supporting character. The setting, soundtrack, and the clothes will all take you back to the 1993 New York scene.

For the Movie heads, it’s Forest Whitaker’s first directed movie. It also stars Bokeem Woodbine in his film debut. Strapped reminds me a lot to Clockers as far as the setting.

Here’s the Plot:
“Ex-con attempting to go straight runs accross serious problems. His girlfriend gets arrested for dealing crack to an undercover police officer. In a desperate attempt to get the charges dropped against his woman, he strikes deal with weapons cop(Michael Biehn) to turn in local gun dealers. However, the D.A. is not satisfied with the results, resulting in some serious game playing and double crossing.” Written by Humberto Amador
