Easily one of my favorite hip hop documentaries of all time, sitting alongside Style Wars, Scratch, Freestyle, etc. For me, the early to mid 90’s were the most exciting time in music, where creativity and originality truly were at its apex. And this documentary captured that time capsule so beautifully – seeing these rare moments of purity, cyphers where would-be massive artists would come in and just drop a rhyme, out of pure love. The archival footage is magic, a time before social media and even cell phones, where people would form communities based around a mutual love for hip hop. I really, really enjoyed this documentary, but again I’m biased towards that era. Watch for yourself.
