Through the Years of Hip Hop
Volume 1, GraffitiStreaming Video - 2013
Graffiti takes an intelligent look at the origins of "writing" in New York City, and its evolution from ghetto youth crime to splashy art-world staple. Legends Seen and Vulcan discuss graffiti artists Lee Quinones, Dondi, and Phase 2. Charlie Ahearn and Kevin Powell place the phenomenon within a sociological context. Seven classic hip-hop videos from the past to the present offer extensions of ideas built into graffiti art, and include Run DMC's "Rock Box" and Rob Base and DJ E-Z Rock's "It Takes Two." Learn how these young, gifted pioneers constructed an industry that so many people now enjoy. Each volume in this series features an inspiring journey of musical genre creation. Additional full-length videos from Queen Latifah, De La Soul, Special Ed, Dana Dane, and Crash Crew complete this comprehensive document of an exciting urban art form.
