6. Regina King as Shalika in Boyz n the Hood
In 1991, Regina King starred as Shalika in the John Singleton film, Boyz n the Hood. She was loud, in your face and never missed an opportunity to drink her 40 ounce straight out the bottle. It’s fun to see King’s range as an actress. She’s just as believable as the “ghettocentric” chick as she is playing a police office or mother.
