12 O'Clock Boyz is a legendary film series that was released in 2001 and 2003, showcasing the exploits of young African-American dirt bike riders in Baltimore, Maryland. 12 O'Clock Boyz (2001) is the first independent urban dirt-bike film released in the northeastern region of the United States.
12 O’Clock Boyz was created and directed by Taje Monbo, a well-known filmmaker, entertainer, and Baltimore dirt-bike rider. The title of the film is a phrase coined by rider Taje Monbo to describe the way in which riders would elevate the front of their bikes and ride only on the back wheels until their bikes would be perpendicular to the road or in the "12 O'Clock" position.
The success of the 12 O'Clock Boyz films is the reason kids in Baltimore aspired to be a 12 O'Clock Boy.
