Description

New York in the 1980s was a city tormented by violent crime. But despite the violence some found room for creativity. Hip hop culture was in full bloom and a group of young graffiti artists became famous for their determination to keep the subway trains colourful despite the city's zero-tolerance policy towards graffiti. They became known as the infamous RIS crew, waging a war with the city's authorities. As a result, they took over New York with style, becoming one of the world's most influential graffiti crews. This is their story.

Reviews
"The trains may have been buffed, but Rockin' It Suckers proves the RIS crew's indelible mark on New York City and graffiti culture worldwide." -- Abbey Goodman, Executive editor at RollingStone.com
