Hip-hop’s history on the silver screen is as wild and wide-ranging as the story of the genre itself. It’s full of straightforward biopics, like the just-released N.W.A history Straight Outta Compton, as well as fictitious stories inspired by real life, such as Krush Groove’s dramatization of Russell Simmons and Def Jam’s rise in the music industry. There are crime movies like Belly and inner-city hood tales like Menace II Society; sports movies like Wildcats and weed comedies like Friday. And just as hip-hop culture is a dominant influence on modern society, it also plays an integral role in some of the best American films in recent memory, including Spike Lee’s Do the Right Thing. So let’s count down some of the most Notorious movies of the hip-hop era. Who’s got the Juice?

‘Style Wars’ (1983)
