In 1993, Halle carried the positive charges of Jungle Fever and Boomerang into higher levels of Hollywood. Staring alongside Patrick Swayze (Fatherhood) and a young Omar Epps (The Program), she shined.
Around the same time, a lyrical prodigy named Nasir Jones had a deafening buzz across New York City as the rap world anxiously anticipated his debut album, Illmatic.
A year before Illmatic dropped, Nas and his Braveheart crew visited Stretch Armstrong and Bobbito‘s infamous college radio show and dropped a freestyle that included a bar honoring Halle’s ill figure.
The mention, by Braveheart member 6″9, didn’t play on MTV or radio airwaves, but it was a clear sign that Halle’s rep was growing. It also proved that the hood recognized and acknowledged her star potential long before most of Hollywood did.
