A Hip Hop classic for the 21st century
8 May 2002 | by (Woodbridge,VA) – See all my reviews

Backstage is a film that is reminscent of hip hop movies like Beat Street, Wild Style and Krush Groove. While the film isn't a actual movie it's a doucmentary and still very entearining. You get a real understanding of Roc A Fella records. Very good movie.
