The Ave Podcast – 25th Anniversary of Above The Rim

The Ave Podcast with Cal Cee. Episode 69: 25th Anniversary of Above The Rim

In the spirit of #FlashbackFriday, we take it all the way back to March 1994* where we celebrate and pay tribute, to one of the more impactful movies in pop-black culture. Twenty five years ago, New Line Cinemas & director Jeff Pollack released Above The Rim, a movie about a New York City HS Basketball star and his relationship with two people: one is a drug dealer, and the other one is a former basketball star fighting his own personal demons. Both of these men impact his life at a critical period in his life on his pursuit of playing NCAA basketball.

So today on The Ave Podcast, I invite Dennis Barham (Actor) & 1st time guest Peter-John Kerr (Director/Producer; Founder of Swooplay), as we have a conversation 25 years later about Above The Rim. We discuss the influence this movie had on basketball players from our generation, Tupac’s impact and his untapped potential as an actor, question the existence of Tommy Shepherd, review the legendary soundtrack, and much more.

* Technically, this movie debuted on March 23, 1994. However, the decision was made to air this podcast a week later so that it didn’t get lost during the 1st weekend of March Madness. You’re welcome basketball fans….

The Ave Podcast – The 25th Anniversary of Juice #Juice25

The Ave Podcast with Cal Cee. Episode 18: The 25th Anniversary of Juice #Juice25

In the spirit of #FlashbackFriday, we take you back to 1992 where we celebrate one of the most influential movies of the Golden era. Twenty five years ago (originally released Jan 17, 1992), Paramount Pictures and Director Ernest Dickerson released Juice. A groundbreaking movie that not only tells the coming-of-age story of four teenagers from Harlem whose lives were forever changed by one fateful night, but it went on to launch the career of Omar Epps, and sent Tupac Shakur into superstardom.

During this two-part podcast series, I invited DJ Chris Nice (Grooves & Rhythms Mixshow, Fridays from 2 – 4PM on MyLime Radio), DJ G-Sharp (Sunday Night Old School Classics, Sun 7 – 9PM; & WTF Throwback Mix, Fridays 8 – 8:30AM on WPGC’s 95.5FM in Washington, D.C.), past contributor to South Shore Ave Shawn Adonis (The Notorious B.I.G.’s Ready To Die, The MVPs of 2016), and producer Andrew Mambo (ESPN 30 for 30 Podcast), as we discuss the movie, the Soundtrack, the rise of Tupac Shakur, the days of the Soundtrack era for black movies in the 90s, the Power/Respect/Peer Pressure dynamic, plus more.
