One of my oldest friend’s in rap journalism, J. Pablo, put together this dope piece for VIBE. He basically wanted to see what other movies big time rappers were into, besides Scarface, Goodfeallas, Casino, King of New York, etc. P even went the extra step to get all original quotes from 10 rappers, including Jay-z, Common, Q-Tip, Sean Price, 2 Chainz, Vado, Big K.R.I.T., Action Bronson, Raekwon and more. Below, Hov explains why he loves True Romance.
Jay-Z: A lot of our culture is based on individuals trying to keep things as authentic as possible. It’s the main reason that reality shows are the majority of programming nowadays. But in spite of that I think people want the happy ending. Never under estimate the power of a happy ending.

Q Tip on Mean Streets: It’s just to me, the quintessential New York movie. I’m a New Yorker to the fullest and though there are a lot of films set in the city, I really appreciate this one because it’s definitely gangster but deals with loyalty and faith and other themes that are usually on the backburner in gangster flicks. Plus I had a lot of friends like Johnny Boy growing up. Good dudes, who just were fuck ups, y’ know?
Common on Eternal Sunshne of The Mind: This is my favorite movie in which nobody gets killed. I thought conceptually it was great. Instead of dealing with heartbreak, just erase the entire experience… that was genius. Lots of us would use that treatment because love can hurt. I try and include the topic of love in my music because it’s a very big part of our existence. When you can address love and still be humorous and not over do it… that balance is what I try and accomplish with my music.
