In 1982, a small, independent movie written, produced and directed by Charlie Ahearn was released. Wild Style, the first film to unite the underground urban art forms of nascent hip hop culture - DJing, MCing, b-boxing and graff writing - was filmed on location in the South Bronx without permits or pretensions. Wild Style is truly a classic, having inspired countless artists, musicians and writers with unforgettable scenes starring the era's most memorable personalities. Celebrating its silver anniversary this book provides behind-the-scene insights.
"We all did our thing. We are history. Wild Style is all over the world,"
