Story: Box set containing three urban dramas. In 'Above the Rim' (1994), high-school basketball star Kyle (Duane Martin) is being scouted by representatives from some top college teams. He is eager to impress and hopes that college basketball will be his ticket to the NBA. But he is also seduced by the glamour of local drug dealer Birdie (Tupac Shakur) and begins playing on Birdie's side in the neighbourhood game. Former basketball star Shep (Leon) tries to persuade Kyle to focus his attention on his education, but the future of the young hopeful continues to sway in the balance. 'Hangin' With the Homeboys' (1991) follows four men from the Bronx - two black and two Puerto Rican - as they go out for a night on the town. A keen examination of the tensions between the four friends is played out against a background of the wider, racial tensions in New York City. Written and directed by Joseph B. Vasquez. 'House Party' (1990) stars rappers Kid 'n' Play as two teens ready to jam at a friends house party, until Kid gets grounded. George Clinton makes a cameo appearance.
