  1. Paid in full should’ve been on here!! It’s one of the best Hood movies ever made! Top 5 for sure…..not to mention it’s a true story!

  2. Blood in blood out ? Has to be one of the best hood /gangster movie ever made surprised it’s not even in the list ????

  3. 8 miles and friday are not hood movies like that like tf. those are nothing. struggle to eat and rap, then struggle to eat with comedy and bully NAH fam. show me all struggle in one. Like City Of God which was supposed to be NUMBER 1

  4. WTF 😱
    Sean Penn's groundbreaking Colours isn't on your list, it practically invented the modern day street gang culture movie.
    Some odd choices on your list too…8 Mile anyone?

  5. The hood and the people who matter strongly disagree with this list. Ain't no EFFIN way 8 mile is Ahead of New Jack City and Friday. TFOH

  6. Friday and 8 Mile over New Jack City, City of God, Juice? No honors for Dead Presidents or Tales from the Hood?

  7. the best Hood movie that was made was meance ll society plus it showed us a life lesson at the ending. It all catches back up to u in the end i think meance ll society number 1# Best👍 hood movie ever.

  8. WHAT THE FUCK… no… NUMBER 1 should have been SOUTH CENTRAL!!! OG MUTHAFUCKING BOBBY JOHNSON!! Tf.. who made this list? Who raised you…?

  9. damn son no Belly? damn what? yall are tripping. That has to be one of the greatest and most real hood films ever.

  10. Do the right thing was confusing for me. Was I supposed to sympathize with the ungrateful bastards that hurt Sal at every step? Sal was not racist inthe slightest and that unhinged black nationalist started shit with him.

  11. More honorable mentions.Beat Street, Krush Groove, Fresh, King of New York, Don't Be A Menace To South Central While Drinking Your Juice In The Hood, ATL.

  12. Got a couple of new flicks to check out.

    Y’all could’ve spent a little time on the amazing talents in the casts though. For example, Do The Right Thing had The Late Great Ossie Davis, Ruby Dee and Robin Harris. And the late Bill Nunn in a crucial, timeless role. Danny Aiello, Giancarlo Esposito, John Turturo, Samuel L. Jackson and Rosie Perez were impressive too!

  13. This list lost my interested when 8 mile was placed above Friday. But i shoyldve known i would be disappointed when Friday was so low.

  14. How is a place with the whitest of white people gonna judge the best hood movie? Cuz Shady came out of one now they think so lol….i bet not one of those white ppl have even been to the hood before. Fuckin crazy

  15. Let a actual hood person make this list🤣🤣8 mile ain't better than Friday, Juice, or new Jack city come on🤦🏾‍♀️🤦🏾‍♀️🤡all these trash ass movies

  16. Id rather here the 'N' word from WatchMOJO then have this video title use the phrase 'hood' like its everyday vernacular for them. Dont ask .e how/why cuz i cant you… its just does.t feel right.

  17. Colors? Strapped? Thicker than water? Belly? Wtf? Training day wasn't really a hood movie either. More of a cop movie.

  18. No Robin Hood Prince of Thieves? But Menace to Society and New Jack City make the list? WTF? They don't even have hood in their titles!

  19. Boooooooooooooooo paid in full top 3, shottas, new jersey drive????? If 8 mile qualifies then White men cant jump, house party lol? International I mean slumdog millionaire lmao?

  20. New Jack city number 10?? Where is set it off and I don’t think Friday is a hood movie but whatever
