Captivating performances by legendary rappers Nas and DMX propel director Hype Williams’s gritty, visually dazzling urban crime-thriller now presented in this 25th anniversary edition.

As gang leader Tommy (DMX) looks to expand his turf by dealing a new form of heroin, his friend Sincere (Nas) dreams of escaping the gangster life with his girlfriend and baby daughter.

After a drug house operated by Tommy is raided, he and Sincere — now pursued by both the police and rival gangs — each find themselves on a course that will either lead to redemption or ruin.
