Movies in Harlem
This weekend I went to see the movie American Gangster featuring Denzel Washington and Russell Crowe.I had to post about this movie because the movie takes place in Harlem, my favorite neighborhood. The movie also features one of my favorite hip-hop artists Common as well as T.I. and Rza who also did a great job.
Although this movie is about a notorious gangster, Frank Lucas, I must admit that I was intrigued by the power this man possed. It makes you wonder, how it is that a man intelligent enough to run a drug ring that grossed a million dollars a day, could not take the same model and apply it to a legitimate business or businesses.
What’s your take on this?
