Wyld Style 2
3 March 2019 | by jcallaghaSee all my reviews

This was surprisingly classic and dope for a made for TV movie! DJ Premier does the music and the acting is well done in my opinion. The well timed Primo backdrops and guest appearances like Method Man make this movie a must see for hip hop heads and is a 90s version of Wyld Style!
