I'll be looking at "hip hop" movies this week.
Let's start with the most popular. And probably the best. Here's an ad for the hip hop classic, Krush Groove. Krush Groove was the fictional story behind the founding of Def Jam Records. It included stars like Kurtis Blow, Run-DMC, The Fat Boys, The Beasties Boys, New Edition and Full Force.
Krush Groove turned 25 years old last October. And it's as good now as it was then. The only problem with the movie is Sheila E. She brings the entire thing to a grinding halt. Regardless, it's a great movie.
Check out the trailer.
And, as a bonus, check out LL Cool J's electrifying motion picture debut. It truly is awesome.
