Available Monday January 23 SPECIAL edition DVD of a hard-hitting movie focusing on drug and gang culture in New York. With rappers and other hip-hop artists among the cast, New Jack City was first released in 1991, and is set in New York's poorest districts. Violence and crime are rife, and fear is tangible. Drug baron Nino Brown rises to power, takes over a town house and converts it into a coke production factory to cope with demand. But undercover cops manage to infiltrate the operation, and work out a plan to send Brown down.
