Let’s get the record straight — the “all style, no substance” argument can apply to a lot of things: hybrid cars, paleo diets, Drake. Or, in the case of Hype Williams, the mastermind behind nearly every iconic hip-hop video from the ‘90s, such a defined style is a statement in and of itself. Every bug-eyed, leather-strapped frame beams with an intensity to melt the white right outta your eye. With BELLY, Williams places rappers Nas & DMX into a neon-soaked gangster dreamworld full of Jamaican drug lords and Amazonian lady assassins, conjured from the minds of a thousand wannabe Tony Montanas. Join us to celebrate the most audacious and exciting hip-hop joint of its era. Steady, are ya ready?

Directed by Hype Williams. USA. 1998. 96 min. 35mm. Print Courtesy of Lionsgate.
