Sincerely yours, 1986
25 February 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Interview format documentary about the Bronx's rap culture with a Dutchman asking locals light to frank questions. Some of the local celebs included:

Grandmaster Flash, Doug E Fresh (best beatbox i've seen him do), Roxanne Shante & Biz Markie (live), Russell Simmons, Darryl "D.M.C." McDaniels (rapping to a tape in his car), Run & Jam Master Jay (in the studio), LL Cool J & E Love (straight outta Grandma Todd's house), Suliaman El Hadi of the Last Poets, Schooly D & DJ Code Money

Nowhere near as gritty as "80 Blocks from Tiffany's", but edgier than an afternoon special.
