John Singleton&#39s portrayal of social problems in inner-city Los Angeles takes the form of a tale of three friends growing up together &#39in the &#39hood.&#39 Half-brothers Doughboy and Ricky Baker are foils for each other&#39s personality, presenting very different approaches to the tough lives they face. Ricky is the &#39All-American&#39 athlete, looking to win a football scholarship to USC and seeks salvation through sports, while &#39Dough&#39 succumbs to the violence, alcohol, and crime surrounding him in his environment, but maintains a strong sense of pride and code of honor. Between these two is their friend Tre, who is lucky to have a father, &#39Furious&#39 Styles, to teach him to have the strength of character to do what is right and to always take responsibility for his actions.
