This year will be all about education. Learning, searching, sharing and spreading knowledge. Getting closer to the truth of this dance style and culture. I’m starting my blog with a Gary Weis’ documentary “80 Blocks from Tiffany’s”. It’s about South Bronx street gangs, mostly focusing on Savage Skulls and Savage Nomads, and it’s dated back to the summer of 1979. This goes out to everybody who’s looking for understanding of the environment and atmosphere in which hip hop got it’s birth.
The documentary is divided in 8 pieces (with some problem with the sound in the 7th). Check out the block party on the last sections. Stay tuned for more posts.
