An actor limited to stereotypical roles because of his ethnicity, dreams of making it big as a highly respected performer. As he makes his rounds, the film takes a satiric look at African American actors in Hollywood.

Released 21 years before the movie Straight Outta Compton (2015), which was a movie about gangsta hip-hop and details the story of N.W.A., the group that was parodied in this film. See more »
Around the 12-minute mark, the group is talking backstage with security about how their manager got "capped". Then the manager is with them later in the film. See more »
"Guerillas in the Midst", man, that is gonna be *crazy* large. And the album "Fear of a Black Hat", that's gonna be bigger than "Wild Thing". Oh, man, you brothers are gonna be large for the simple fact that you're with me. And I got the wining team, and I am large. I am larger than large. In fact, I'm so big they call me Dinosaur.

The video version differs from the theatrical release in that it features an added video, "A Gangsta's Life Ain't Fun." Some scenes before and after the video are also slightly changed. See more »
Well I don't personally like rap, but I still found Fear of a Black Hat hilarious. I'm sure I didn't get some inside jokes, but some I knew, and it was funny enough to make me laugh just after I'd stopped laughing. I'm a big fan of Spinal tap, so naturally I had to check this out. It was deriviative from This Is Spinal Tap, sometimes blatantly, but this film still stood on it's own as an original, intelligent, and funny satire. My personal favorite: "Back in the time of slaves, they didn't have hats to protect them from the sun, so at the end of the day they were too tired to revolt. Now we have hats."
