Hood movies are a staple of Black culture. From groundbreakers like Friday and Juice to Paid In Full and Belly (and everything in between), hood flicks usually bounce between humorous and hyper-violent (like, damn near Looney Tunes levels).
Sometimes, the best movies incorporate both!
Having made significant moves in music, Griselda will step into the hood movie arena with their debut motion picture, Conflicted. Directed by AK Reed, the film is set to star Benny The Butcher (who is also an executive producer of the film), Westside Gunn, J Holiday (wow, where has he been?) and others.
Gunn has also shared a trailer for Conflicted on his Instagram page. “When Master P did I’m Bout It showing you the N.O., HOV made Streets is Watching showing you BK, and Cam’ron made Killa Season showing you Harlem, Griselda & Conflicted shows you Buffalo,” he says.
While no release date has been announced, the trailer can be seen below.
