A couple of days ago our boy Twice dropped a link to a movie called Freestyle – The Art of Rhyme. It got me thinking about some of the classic hip-hop movies that’ve been made over the years, and I figured it’d be dope to post a couple of ’em here on 4080 for your viewing pleasure.
The first in the series is perhaps also the best: Wild Style. The story of a graf artist called Zoro, the movie features some of the biggest name in early hip-hop. The best part of the movie, though, comes at the 6:52 mark: “Stop fucking around and be a man. There ain’t nuthin’ out here for you.”
“Oh yes there is – this.” And then the beat drops.
