Rubble Kings - The story of the birth of Hip-Hop

Recommended Posts

more to do with the gangs and the famous meeting like in the film the warriors. little towards the end goes on to when the gangs stopped fighting and were talking about block parties which when lead into hip hop/sampling music great documentary really enjoyed it especially as it was from the original gangs and there members

That's spot on.  The hip hop thing only comes in towards the end.  The gang stuff is amazing and shocking at the same time.  Great documentary.

These kids nowadays who think they're "gangstas", would crap their pants and scream for their Mums if they came face to face with some of the original gangs (hypothetically that is due to most of the OGs being in their fifties and sixties now!).

I really enjoyed this documentary and it's well worth watching.... It's already been mentioned, but it's really a history of the New York gangs and how certain acts of violence made the gangs change their ways and channel their energy into other things (the early hip-hop culture)... The Hip Hop footage shown has been used in other documentaries before, but may be fresh to some viewers. It really is worth taking a look.....
