Product Description

WILD STYLE follows the exploits of maverick tagger Zoro (real life graffiti artist Lee Quinones), whose work attracts the attention of an East Village art fancier (Patti Astor) who commissions him to paint the stage for a giant Rapper's Convention. A documentation of the earliest days of hip-hop in the boroughs of New York, everything in WILD STYLE is authentic - the story, style, characters, and most of the actors, are drawn from the community. It features a pantheon of old-school pioneers, including Grandmaster Flash, Busy Bee, The Cold Crush Brothers and more. Now celebrating its 30th Anniversary, WILD STYLE chronicles the influential South Bronx youth culture of the day - before it became globally known - and shows many important hip-hop personalities in their milieu before they went on to reap national acclaim. Chief among these is Fab 5 Freddy, who hosted Yo! MTV Raps from its inception. As vibrant and relevant as ever, WILD STYLE presents the first celluloid vision of hip-hop as a unified culture, linking graffiti, break dancing, DJing, freestyle MCing and the emergence of the hip-hop nation, culminating in one of the greatest hip-hop parties in history.

Review

Wild Style is a cult classic - indisputably the most important hip hop movie, ever. --British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC)

I came across this movie because I was taking a class in improvised hip-hop (challenging and fun). I had seen samples of "The Hip-hop Family Tree" on boing-boing, so I ordered and read it. In the first volume, this movie was mentioned, so I got it.

I enjoyed this movie. The plot is fine, but the fun part, for me, is seeing the pioneers of hip-hop doing their things: rap, dj, graffiti, break-dancing, and beat-boxing.

Almost as interesting are the interviews with the creators of the film thirty years later. Lee Quinones has become an amazing painter, and the others are very good.

I was a sophomore in High School in New York City when Wild Style came out and watching it takes me back to a time when hip hop was just so much better than the noise being created today. At age 15 we were allowed to go to venues such as the Roxy and Harlem world and we grew up seeing the pioneers before they went big time. As a former DJ my genre of hip ho is strictly OLD SCHOOL rap and it was a time when the vocals were simpler and easier to digest compared to the like of little wayne etc. Movies like Wild Style and Beat Street will never grow old for me because every time I watch it, it brings back those magical days.As a person who grew up in Hollis, Queens and East Harlem, I can say with confidence that everything about the movie was accurate. Thank You Amazon for adding my favorite vintage hip hop movie which takes first place followed by Beat Street, and then Krush Groove. I sometimes feel sorry for the youth of today because as they age, they will not have much to look back on when it comes to music.

It is a strange sensation watching a movie you've never seen before but where practically every line of dialogue you have heard sampled in various hip-hop songs. And, of course, you've heard the music on tracks by Nas and Big Daddy Kane. Watching the movie in its original context, some thirty plus years later, was a challenge. Maybe the storyline (especially the love story subplot) has dated, or maybe it was always just a bit awkward. Nonetheless, Wild Style is as influential as the Beatles and can't be written off as the poorly-produced, thinly-scripted, loosely-acted, 1980's sub-B-movie that it probably is.
