Storyline

The Get Down focuses on 1970s New York City - broken down and beaten up, violent, cash strapped -- dying. Consigned to rubble, a rag-tag crew of South Bronx teenagers are nothings and nobodies with no one to shelter them - except each other, armed only with verbal games, improvised dance steps, some magic markers and spray cans. From Bronx tenements, to the SoHo art scene; from CBGBs to Studio 54 and even the glass towers of the just-built World Trade Center, The Get Down is a mythic saga of how New York at the brink of bankruptcy gave birth to hip-hop, punk and disco -- told through the lives and music of the South Bronx kids who changed the city, and the world...forever. Written by Netflix

Super Def!
23 August 2016 | by thealmightycbiggemsSee all my reviews

This show brought tears to my eyes, it felt like I was in a time machine. Episode 6 was off the chain, I really enjoyed the authenticity and accuracy of the harmonizing style of rhyming, the systematic word play, a true Hip Hop landmark, I feel bad for the rappers of today, (noticed I said rappers not MC's, there's a difference) majority of them don't even know the history of Hip Hop, I thank whoever had the genius to do this show, showing the Bronx how it was, the disco era, vogue dancing, the shows in the park, all that. I must have called ten friends about this show, in those days my crew was called "Ultra Sonic Sounds" my hip hop name was "Cheap Charlie", and I'm proud to say I was there at that time and it was remarkable, especially how we loved to harmonize at the parks, powering our equipment from light posts, the crowds dancing, etc. Anyway Without further ado, Netflix! thanks for the memories, it is well appreciated.
