Go To

A 1993 American Mockumentary written and directed by Rusty Cundieff that chronicles the rise and fall of NWH, a not really talented or bright but always controversial, hip-hop group.

The movie stars Larry B Scott, Mark Christopher Lawrence, Cundieff, Kasi Lemmons, Howie Gold, G Smokey Campbell, Brad Sanders, among others.

It was released on January 24, 1993.

Tropes for the film:

  • Mistaken for Profound: Ton Def states, "Because when you take a bus, you get there". His fellow musicians think it's gibberish, but the producer is deeply impressed with this sage wisdom.
  • Oh, Crap!: When Tasty finds Ice in bed with his girlfriend, "Aw, shit!" is the reaction of everyone in the room.
  • Sleeps with Everyone but You:
    Nina Blackburn: "What, if any, is the difference between a ho and a bitch?"
    Tone Def: "A ho fucks everybody".
    Tasty Taste: "Right, but a bitch fucks everybody except you".
  • You No Take Candle: Played for Laughs. A video is shown with an attractive, Asian singer with an impressively booming voice, but when she is interviewed, she can barely speak a word of English. The real singer, an overweight, unattractive woman, then confronts her. This was a parody of the video for "Gonna Make You Sweat (Everybody Dance Now)", which also featured a beautiful woman who it later came out did not do the original singing.
