Before I put in a (too-brief) stint in the Stuy and a gentrified eight year run out in Carroll Gardens, I was in Fort Greene during that amazing time period this film talks about. Shout to Gabe, Jerome, Devin, Laron, Dino, Eisa, Junior, Dave Jenkins (R.I.P.), Sarah, Hilly, Colson, Ndidi, Les, Osman, Kevin, Shandi, Fiona, Ramos, Common and anyone else I've forgotten that I ever partied, lived or loved with in the original (real) Fort Greene-Clinton Hill.
