Jay-Z: Fade to BlackClose
Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this movie contains some strong language. While there is no on-screen sex, drug use or violence, Jay-Z's lyrics are occasionally sexually explicit, and include references to drug use and violence. Generally, the profane remarks are part of stand-alone boasts, rather than a unified worldview. If the viewer is unfamiliar with hip-hop lingo, many references will go by too quickly to be understood.
