This piece is over 35 minutes long, so if you have the time to listen to it you definitely should. After building up the story (and leaving us hanging) on Friday, director Allen Hughes finally tells his side of the story on the rift with 2Pac, more Menace II Society tales, his thoughts on Tarantino’s propensity of using the n-word in his films, and more.
Menace II Society director, Allen Hughes, continues his discussion with Sway about the 20 year anniversary of the classic film, while in-studio on Shade 45. Along with telling unheard stories about what happened on-set, he finally opened up about his relationship with Tupac, where the intense fallout occurred and Shakur’s relationship with Jada Pinkett Smith.
Menace II Society is one of the greatest “hood” movies of all time, and half of the directing team behind the film – the Hughes Brothers – stopped by Sway In The Morning to speak on Larenz Tate’s O-Dog, 2Pac’s involvement and more.
