The original New Jack City movie was made up of a star-studded cast led by Wesley Snipes, Chris Rock, Ice-T, Allen Payne, Judd Nelson and actor-director Van Peebles. Snipes played the role of Nino Brown, a rising drug lord during the ’80s crack epidemic in New York City. The 1991 film follows detective Scotty Appleton, portrayed by Ice-T, who wants to avenge his mother’s death that was caused by Nino Brown. He tries to stop the drug ring by going undercover as a member of Nino’s gang called the Cash Money Brothers.
