You're right. Redondo Beach Blvd entrance to the 110.

In the video, see the :12 mark, would you be looking east or west? As TheLopez2 said, it seems like it would have to be west.

Rosecrans looks unlikely because it is above the freeway. Although they could have raised the road to go above the freeway, the buildings around it are on the same level.

The McDonald's sign is on the other side of the street from "Sleazy-E." You can see it at :12 and at 1:31-32. At 1:31, it is right about Sleazy-E's "Will Rap for Food" sign.

If it is West Sepulveda, you that those two gas stations are no longer on the right (which is hardly surprising considering how fast gas stations go in and out of business). And, as we've noted, there is no McDonald's on the left. The mystery goes on . . . . . .

Just write a nice letter to the estate of Eric Wright requesting the information that you seek.

I was wrong, it's north of Downtown , that's why there is a no truck sign. The McDonalds, Chevron and Shell are still there. By the way , Gas stations don't frequently go in and out of business here. It's W Ave 26

You are BRILLIANT.



Any idea regarding the significance of this spot? Any thing special happening here back in the day? Did this area of LA have a high concentration of African Americans?

No significance that I can think of, it is not a documentary, it was probably used for ease of filming.
