Profile

John Daniel Singleton was born in Los Angeles, California on January 6, 1968. He grew up in South Central Los Angeles, and his work as a director, producer, and screenwriter reflected his turbulent, often violent upbringing.

Singleton studied screenwriting at the University of Southern California’s School of Cinematic Arts, where he won three university writing awards and landed a contract with Creative Artists Agency during his sophomore year.

Columbia Pictures purchased his script for Boyz n the Hood in 1991 and budgeted it at $7 million. The film, which depicted life in crime-ridden South Central Los Angeles, was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Director in 1991, making Singleton the first African-American and the youngest person ever nominated. The film was also nominated for Best Original Screenplay.

Following the victory, Singleton won Poetic Justice in 1993 and Higher Learning in 1995. Both films examined modern race relations, and while they were box office successes, they were not as well received by critics as his debut effort.

Following works include the 1997 historical drama Rosewood, the 2000 remake of Shaft starring Samuel L. Jackson, and the 2001 film Baby Boy. In 2005, he directed the box office hit Four Brothers and produced the critically acclaimed indie film Hustle & Flow.

Singleton suffered a stroke in April 2019 and was placed in a medically induced coma at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. On April 29, 2019, he passed away.
