The RingTone Rap Brigade need to watch this and be embarrassed
4 November 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Quite simply the best Documentary of any kind i have ever seen. It covers the birth of all 5 elements of the Hip Hop culture (not so much graffiti though) and goes into the lives of these Pioneers, who by just dancing have created a multi billion Dollar industry without really being credited for it. Anyone who was a Bboy, wanted to be one or enjoyed watching these amazing people spinning around on the floor need to get their peepers around this piece of film to see how far it has progressed from back in the day.

Hip Hop isn't being shot 9 times, Hooking up with Dre or Bellydancing..........

...This IS Hip Hop

ENJOY !!
