Beat This: A Hip Hop Documentary

This documentary produced by the BBC in 1984 contains interviews with DJ Kool Herc, Africa Bambaattaa, Malcolm McClaren, a Soul Sonic Force recording sessions as well as a Cold Crush Brothers performance and a Graffiti and B-Boy introduction.
Hiphop has come a long way, and obviously the fashion too. Alien and indian outfits, tight clothes, jerry curls, the white handgloves and a whole lot of leather. Everytime I see this documentary with my friends, we keep amazing ourselves how Hip Hop used to look back in the early beginnings.

The part I liked most was the scene where Kool Herc shows some old footage of parties he used to throw down together with his master of ceremony Coke La Rock. And although the footage isn't realy good quality, you are seeing the beginning of hiphop.

The running time for this documentary is 54 minutes, and it will leave a good impression and will lead to discussion if you are watching it together with others. Feel free to download and leave a comment of what you think of it.

    because 90% of users find quicktime not userfriendly, and a docu should be one file. not 15 split files.

    but that link is an options to, but too much work.
