Teen couple leaning in for a kiss

2. Brown SugarWhen did you fall in love with hip hop? This is the story of two best friends who are madly in love (but don’t know it yet) and how love and hip hop are intertwined in their lives. This movie is close to my heart because, just like the main characters Dre and Syd, my husband and I started out as friends. Of course, the “thing” I have for Mos Def only slightly influences my decision to add this movie to my list. Favorite sappy quote: I need you to be there for me, just like you asked of me. So I can have tea and eat cucumber sandwiches with the crust cut off!
