Ever see the movie Wildstyle? It was the first hip-hop film ever.
While it was fiction, it plays almost like a documentary, transporting you back to 1983 for a look at the early days of hip-hop culture. It covers all 4 elements of hip-hop culture, from DJing to MCing to Breaking and Graffiti, and features many of hip-hop’s pioneers, including Busy Bee, Double Trouble, The Cold Crush Brothers, Grandmaster Flash, Kay Slay and even Blondie. The movie was written, produced and directed by Charlie Ahearn and honored at the 2008 Vh1 Honors. Whether this is your first time seeing it or 50th, it’s a great way to pass a Sunday afternoon. Enjoy.
