Movie Quote of the Day – Dope, 2015 (dir. Rick Famuyiwa)
Dom: Yo man, I be seein’ you and your little friends with y’all flattops and MC Hammer pants, riding around in this shit, looking like y’all came out of a DeLorean or some shit. Fuck is up with that shit anyway?
Malcolm: You know, the ’90s was like the golden age of hip-hop. Everything from It Takes a Nation of Millions to The Blueprint was killing it. I guess me and my friends just wish we grew up back then.
Dom: It Takes a Nation came out in ’88. Blueprint came out 2001. What the fuck are you talkin’ ’bout right now?
Malcolm: Technically, um. . .but, you know, the spirit of the music was definitely still ’90s. I mean, It Takes a Nation, Straight Outta Compton, Paid in Full was ahead of their time. And then you got Snoop, Biggie, Wu-Tang. They took the game to the next level. Blueprint was kind of like the punctuation mark.
Dom: Let’s not forget, the ’90s also gave us Vanilla Ice, MC Hammer, and we can’t forget about the Fresh Prince.
Malcolm: Everything in the ’90s wasn’t great, but. . .but you gotta admit “Summertime” was a classic.
