Since my last post on Graffiti Art, I had a chance to watch the Hip Hop movie classic Style Wars. For years I heard about this movie yet I never saw it. Thanks to the good folks at Google and YouTube I was able to watch the whole movie online.
Style Wars is a documentary on primarily Graffiti Art but it covers the core four elements of the Hip Hop Culture. I learned a lot of information that I didn't know about. I wish I would've seen this years ago.
What was really ill was the day after I watched it, I heard an emcee in Soundsci by the name of Oxygen make a reference in his lyrics to bombin' and Phase at the Hop Stew Mix Show Concert. That was Hip Hop History in full circle.
Here's the full movie courtesy of YouTube. Enjoy!
