Beat Street

In 1984 when this film was released for many people it was the beginning of HIP HOP CULTURE as we know it. With a who's who of HIP HOP pioneers the cast includes: Kool Herc, Afrika Bambaataa and the soul sonic force, Doug E. Fresh, Grandmaster Melle Mel and the Furious Five, Fantastic Duo, Kool Moe Dee and the legendary Rock Steady Crew.

Growing up in the UK this was as close as we could get to what eighties Black New York Fashion, Music and Art were really about. The rest is HISTORY!......"Beat street is a lesson too..you can't let the street beat you--- RUAHHH!!!"
