Storyline

The Breaks series picks up where the VH1 original movie leaves off. It is 1990 in New York City at the height of rap's "Golden Age" of creativity, but corporate America has been hesitant to embrace the genre. Nikki lands a dream job as the assistant to the legendary and out-of-control Barry Fouray. Her best friend and producer DeeVee is working with rapper Ahm who is currently under investigation by the police for murder. How far will these driven young people go to rise to the top of the hip-hop world?

2017 is about diversity yet this show is 99% PoC
14 March 2017 | by garda-land20000See all my reviews

The Breaks is a series about a group of friends who try to break into the hip-hop industry in the 1990s.

Keep in mind that the first episode of this TV show has a recap, yep you heard it right the first episode has a recap and it seems that it recaps the movie which they consider it was the first episode, yep you typical garbage nothing new.

Considering this show is made in 2016-2017 when people advocate for equal representation in TV shows it seems that the writers here did not get the memo but because it has 99% PoC in it they consider it diverse, no role model in this show either it's all about the gangsta and teaching future generations to be thugs, let me guess this one will not be canceled.

Not worth the time.
