Eazy-E once called Boyz N The Hood an "after-school special," but its story of a Compton man-child struggling with the violence in his hometown still resonated with a wide audience. Its hit soundtrack explored that theme by surveying black music in the early 1990s, from hardcore reality rap like Ice Cube's "How to Survive in South Central" to socially-minded New Jack R&B like Force One Network's "Spirit (Does Anybody Care)." Tracks like Hi-Five's "Too Young" and Main Source's police brutality metaphor "Just a Friendly Game of Baseball" effectively illustrate this morality tale.
