In 1995 an American drama film was released which starred Michelle Pfeiffer in the leading role as a teacher in a school with students from poverty - stricken, racially segregated and economically deprived areas.
‘Dangerous Minds’ became iconic for introducing a cool rap driven soundtrack to the forefront of the movie. ‘Gangsta’s Paradise’ was notable for it’s Stevie Wonder sample of Pastime Paradise yet what this song did for the film was push contemporary rap and hip hop to the public domain and make the genre relevant again.
