Above the Rim

Some games you play. Some games play you. Above the Rim is a stellar high school basketball melodrama with an electrifying cast, a vivid New York setting, and a sizzling Death Row-produced hip hop & soul soundtrack. The film follows a talented teenage hoops prospect (Duane Martin) and his relationships with two men on different paths, a charismatic drug dealer (an electrifying Tupac Shakur) and a troubled former b-ball star (Leon), in the lead-up to the city’s big streetball tournament. Featuring Bernie Mac, Marlon Wayans, and Wood Harris in memorable supporting roles, plus a Source Awards-winning Soundtrack of the Year with tracks by 2Pac, Tha Dogg Pound, the debut of Nate Dogg & Warren G’s Regulate, and more.
