There's a LOT to be thankful for
2 September 2018 | by samjayneSee all my reviews

As a B- Movie , a hip hop movie, or whatever, this movie is a blast. You get Run DMC and their friends on a mission. bad reviews are expecting some 'history of hip hop' go read the book. This is more insightful than the history books.
