Da da de de de dah dah!!!!!!!!!!.........

I have been a fan of Rap/Hip hop since the late 70's and had never seen this film. Recently I acquired a copy and the circle is complete. Don't buy this film thinking that its a massive block buster cos its not. What you get is a badly acted, poor story line movie, that would have been better as a documentary as that is really what it is. I know Fab 5 Freddy wanted to boost the awareness of the Rap culture including the street art and dancin and that is what he achieved but a documentary would have worked better in my opinion.
Rant aside, this is a gem, its full of very young pioneers of rap, grafitti and street dance that are true artists. this is a must for anyone studying urban music history its a cracker and I have watched it a number of times and still cannot wait until the last 13 mins as that is when you really get a feel for how it really was back in the early 80's. Its good and it is quite unique and a must for any music memorabilia collector.
I was lucky enough to get the DVD with the extras and they are worth watching as it gives you a greater understanding of the idea behind the movie and some of the content.
I gave 4 stars to this movie, not because it is not worthy of 5 but I think it would have been better as a documentary.
