Rap music is infinitely more original than these creaky devices, and it deserves something better.

Stick with the soundtrack. Full Review
Made in the mid-80s as a cash-in on the hip-hop explosion, the movie plays better now than it did then Full Review
Rating: 2/5 -- Not much acting is on display, the dialog is simplistic, the story is superficial, and the direction is faceless, but true fans won't care. Others have been warned. Full Review
Description by OLDIES.com:
Sheila E., Run-DMC, the Fat Boys and Kurtis Blow co-star in this feature-film romp through New York's teen subculture. They're talented street-savvy urbanites on the move after hooking up with a new record label. But with their success comes ego trips and greed that threaten to destroy everything they've worked for.
