I know the hype. You remember that. My gosh. Now I do. [LAUGH] [LAUGH] Okay, so it might get a little easier. Okay. The next one gave us some trouble though, okay? Okay. It was hard finding a scene where you weren't cursing up A storm. It must be Menace. But, yup, it's a movie we love. Menace of Society. So let's roll the clip and see what happens. Okay. Dog, dog, dog, Yo, dog. Let me get a dub of this [BLEEP], man. This is bad, man. Sh What is the line? All my menace to society [UNKNOWN] fans are gonna be so upset with me.

I remember this, but that was selling the tape. He was just selling the tape. He was trying to get that money, he was trying to get his money up. Remember he was trying to sell the cheeseburger?

Just a little bit [LAUGH]. Just go my whole life. Wait we got to. [SOUND] We got to snap it out. Yeah snap it out [LAUGH]. Darius Lovehall. Okay and so why do you think Love Jones still resonates with people 20 years later? You know it was a universal story. It's really about love and romance. And I think that at the time that it had come out a lot people, Weren't used to seeing black people in love and black people vulnerable. And there was a certain sort of way that they spoke and how they lived. And how they saw life and what the prism that they looked through was a lot different than what you've probably seen with movies like Menace to Society or Dead Presidents, so it was really nice for us to do that movie and just like a great song it can stand the test of time. And that was so well crafted And people still love the movie. I can't believe it's been 20 years. 20 years, why do you look the same? [LAUGH] That's the real question. I give that to my mother and father, the genetics. My my mom and pop still look very young. But just trying to do my best to stay young at heart. And that always helped. But listen, I appreciate All of the Love Jones fans and all of the support that we've had over the years. Myself, Via and the rest of the casts, and the director. We're very proud of that movie. Yes. We love it too. But, we do want to know, is there any behind the scenes tea, or like something like moments that you can share that we don't know? We just always, we just had a great time. We did the movie in Chicago, my home town. And it was just like so weird to go back to. Go back to Chicago to do a movie like this here. It was underworld of this poets and intellects that you know I wouldn't even know where of until we started doing a movie. But there's no T, everybody got along very wealth. We had a great time. Bill Bellamy is a close friend of mine. Isiah Washington. Neo. Everybody. Tate Welcher, who cracked it like I said an amazing script and his direction, which is beautiful. It actually has become a classic. [BLANK_AUDIO]
