You would get your Black card revoked if you never watched Set it Off.

The classic film made its debut on November 6, 1996. It stars Jada Pinkett Smith, Queen Latifah, Vivica A. Fox and Kimberly Elise (in her film debut), who decided to rob a bank for their own personal reasons. The film became a critical and box office success, grossing over $41 million against a budget of $9 million.

F. Gary Gary served as the helmsman for the film, and also co-starred as guy driving a low-rider. The script was written by Kate Lanier and Takashi Bufford. Since the film’s release, many Hip Hop songs used it as a reference like Notorious B.I.G.’s “What’s Beef”.
