BABY BOY is the powerful urban drama directed by John Singleton (Shaft and Boyz N the Hood) starring rap music superstars TYRESE GIBSON and SNOOP DOGG (Half Baked, I Got the Hook Up). With knockout performances from VING RHAMES (Mission: Impossible II, Pulp Fiction, Con Air) and A.J. Johnson (Friday, House Party, The Players Club), BABY BOY is a tough, honest and unflinching look at modern urban life. Jody (Gibson) is a 20-year-old African American in South Central L.A. who is trying to live large but doesn't have a job. He's got two babies by two different women and still lives at home with his mother (Johnson). Growing up is tough on Jody, but a series of events involving his mother's new boyfriend Melvin (Rhames), his girlfriend Yvette (Taraji P. Henson) and her ex-con ex-boyfriend Rodney (Snoop Dogg), force him to learn lessons about living, loving and surviving as a man in the hood. (Source: moviesanywhere.com)

Film

There has never before been a more powerful – if forced – image in black cinema than the image of Baby Boy’s protagonist sitting in his bedroom crying after a violent encounter. The reason being is John Singleton’s framing of a Tupac Shakur mural staring directly at the audience. Because of this – and Singleton’s own history with Shakur in filming Poetic Justice a decade prior before his death, the film acts both as character study via Singleton’s already Sirkian melodrama of black life in Los Angeles, and stylized representation of adversity.

Tyrese may be known for his work in the Fast and Furious franchise but his first film role was in the 2001 coming-of-age drama, Baby Boy. Tyrese starred alongside heavy-hitters like Taraji P. Henson, which also marked her film debut. The two had great chemistry that translated into a longtime friendship, but the same couldn’t be said about all of his co-stars. Apparently, Tyrese and Omar Gooding didn’t have the same chemistry. (Source: www.cheatsheet.com)
