2Pac, Dr. Dre-California Love/Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome
2Pac's California Love is a staple of mid 90's gangster rap. This was a decade when rap changed forms and leaned toward a harsher, grittier style. The lyrics became more violent and sexualized, much to the chagrin of Media watchdog groups and concerned parents everywhere. Rap moved from the urban outskirts of the music industry to the "safe haven" of suburbia. Once relegated to the 2 hour Yo! MTV Raps program, this musical genre has now found a permanent home in every facet of modern media.

The list I have created is made up of five high school films you probably haven't seen.
