After finding out about the death of his kid brother, Jack Spade (played by Keenen Ivory Wayans) returns home from the army, to his old neighborhood. It’s determined that the cause of death is “OG” (Over Gold), which basically means that Jack’s brother, Junebug, was found covered with gold chains, medallions and what-not. We find out that it’s a powerful crime lord, Mr. Big (played by John Vernon), who’s responsible for overflowing the streets with gold chains, causing young kids to “OG”.
Jack seeks out one of his childhood heroes, John Slade (played by Bernie Casey), and asks for his help to take down Mr. Big and stop the gold from spreading. Together they gather a small “army” consisting of a bunch of
relics… tough guys from the 70’s. All of them have colorful names like Hammer, Slammer, Flyguy, and my personal favorite… Kung Fu Joe, and together they set out to clean up the streets of their old neighborhood!
