He changed the soundtrack of blatino porn from a clubby “untz untz untz” to a guttural “ugh. ughh! WHAA!”
Enrique Cruz is widely credited with creating a new arena in pornography – an arena that depicts inner city black and Latino men in environments all their own: the hood, hip hop music, baggy clothes…and in between the sheets of their homies. His film depictions of homothugs and down low culture (men who openly portray a heterosexual lifestyle, but secretly have sex with other men) were first shunned by industry insiders, but soon gave the green light for other producers and directors to follow suit: Taggaz.com, PapiThugz.com, ThugBoy.com, et al, but none have matched Cruz’ expertise in the genre.
The Bronx-born and raised Cruz is a graduate of the School of Visual Arts, has his own production company (Lamancha Videos), and his films are praised from New York to Paris.He has been offered lifetime achievement awards only to turn them down with the feeling that he is not yet finished and still has work to produce.
Cruz stared his career with Vivid Entertainment and directed their best-selling lesbian scene. His successes have leaked over into other fields as well…Cruz directs non-pornographic short films and videos and is a celebrated author.Cruz has also reached pop-icon status his inclusion into the Urban Dictionary and his best works include: “Tiger’s Brooklyn Tales”, “Aprende”, “Hard Core” , and the pinnacle of his work, “Off da Hook”.
