INSPIRATION BEHIND THE ARTWORK
Friday is a 1995 stoner comedy-drama-buddy film directed by F. Gary Gray, making it his directorial debut for a hit movie. Starring Ice Cube, Chris Tucker, Nia Long, Bernie Mac, Tommy Lister, Jr., and John Witherspoon, the film revolves around 16 hours in the lives of unemployed slackers Craig Jones and Smokey, who must pay a drug dealer $200 by 10:00 PM on Friday night.
The film’s subplot focuses on Smokey, who has been smoking a brokered consignment of “indo”, which he was supposed to be selling for drug dealer BIG WORM. In an attempt to explain his obvious lack of revenue, Smokey inadvertently incriminates Craig, subjecting both to BIG WORM’s wrath. BIG WORM has had enough of Smokey “playing with his emotions” and warns him to collect the $200 dollars worth of drugs no later than 10:00 that evening, or he and Craig would be killed.
