FREEK OF THE WEEK: WHO'S THE BADDEST
Who's the meanest, who's the baddest mofo lowdown 'round this damn town...SHONUFF. This is straight from my era. Some of the young folk don't even understand how much of a classic this movie was. Though I must admit, the acting was horrible. So you've got your homeboy Bruce Leroy, against Shonuff, the self proclaimed Shogun of Harlem. This was your classic duel between good and evil...and of course, evil never prevails. Win, lose or draw, as with Heath Ledger's rendition of the Joker, Shonuff was one that you love to see in action. A straight smack talker, in control of a crew, of...what would you even call them?! You've got the girls, I mean do the even know how to fight, or were they the groupies. What is that?!! I took karate for two years, and I ain't seen not near chick in my dojo. Then they got the other guys that just scream and jump around and polish Sho's bizzalls. With all that being said, why wouldn't I watch it everytime it comes on, I love The Last Dragon. But of all the characters, Shonuff was my favorite smack talkin' master of the red glow.
