Way before its time!
9 July 2005 | by rennie4938See all my reviews

This was way before its time. Showcased every aspect of the the hip hop lifestyle, rap, graffiti, and turntablelist. Totally unconventional even featured a battle with the Treacherous Three featuring Kool Moe Dee.Probably didn't get picked up because it was a little too street, too raw, and definitely way too black. But this was epic classic ish. Run Dmc lays down a classic performance which included set in full graph mode. Debi Mazar is a dancer which I find completely wild, but that is typical of the NY hip hop scene then. All inclusive, all encompassing that featured every culture as well as the melding of punk, hip hop, and disco elements.
