OMG! Remember This Scandalous Chick In “NewJackCity?” Wait Til U SEE HER NOW
Most of us, Old Schoolers, will never forget the 1991 hood classic, New Jack City. Many of the actors were so realistic, they made us believe that they really were those characters.
Speaking of which, who remembers the sexy, scandalous character, “Uniqua?” She was “Gee Money’s” (Allen Payne) woman, who did him dirty by hooking up with his ‘CMB brother,’ “Nino Brown” (Wesley Snipes), behind his back. *In Gee Money’s voice* “CMB, we all we got!” My bad y’all, I couldn’t resist. Now back to “Uniqua,”…she did her thing in ’91, but we haven’t seen her much since…until now. Check her out below…
That Was Then, But Check Her Out Now
Her name is Tracy Camilla Johns and she played the hell outta her “Uniqua” role. You may also remember when she made her 1986 acting debut in Spike Lee’s She’s Gotta Have It.
See how she looks at 53 though…
Here She Is Today
Bam! Is this 1991 or 2017? Because looking at this photo of Tracy Camilla Johns today (above, right), it’s almost hard to tell. If it weren’t for the few strands of gray hair, her new pics would damn near look like a throwback (like the only below with Spike).
Now in case you’re wondering, these photos are from Spike Lee, who is about to release his Netflix remake of She’s Gotta Have It. The pretty lady on the right (in below pic) is actress, Dewana A. Wise, who is now playing Tracy’s past role of “Nola Darling” in the film.
Spike posted these two photos the other day when Tracy stopped by the set. He also revealed that Tracy and Dewana cried when they met each other for the first time on set.
Overall it’s always a beautiful thing to see an old school entertainer living healthy and well. Hopefully we’ll be seeing more of Tracy in the near future…
See What Al. B Sure & Tracy Camilla Did Back In The Day
These two pics are from Al B.’s ‘Heartbreak Tour’ when he performed at the Madison Square Garden, 1988.
We don’t now if this was just a playful concert appearance, or if there was something more going on between them. But either way, based on where Al B.’s hand is at, it looks like he wouldn’t have minded taking it there right there on stage, LOL.
