Menace II Society (1993) Poster

Trivia

Tupac Shakur was originally cast to play Sharif but was fired which led to a physical fight with Allen Hughes. Shakur was charged with assault and battery. Shakur bragged about the altercation on an appearance on Yo! MTV Raps (1988). A tape of the appearance was played at the trial as evidence against Shakur. Shakur was sentenced to 15 days in jail.
A prison riot sequence was cut from the film in order to avoid an NC-17 rating.
Spice 1 was originally cast as Caine Lawson.
New Line Cinema mandated that a platinum rapper be cast in the film and so MC Eiht was cast as A-Wax.

Had its UK video release delayed because the BBFC refused to classify it. It was later passed with some cuts (now waived as of 2003).
