Editor's Note
A graffiti "tagger" taken under the wing of an East Village art collector prepares for a festival of rap and hip-hop music. This film details the early 1980's cultural turning point which occurred in the South Bronx, New York, at which time Old School hip-hop was first crystallizing. A fairly authentic document of the early '80s South Bronx rap scene, with a soundtrack featuring Grandmaster Flash, Busy Bee, and co-star Fab 5 Freddy.
