  • Johnny DuBiel's rating of the film Krush Groove

    Whichever way one looks at it: Either... A) It was the first mainstream narrative film to take hip hop seriously or... B) It was the first film that presented hip hop culture that broke into the mainstream... In any measure, this significance outweighs its quality as a film. Today it's a little more than an interesting curiosity. However, it IS a lot of fun pointing out so many early hip hop icons at such a young age
