The early ’80s West Coast hip-hop documentary that inspired the 1984 feature film Breakin' !
Director Topper Carew, who co-created the TV show Martin, produced the film D.C. Cab (co-starring Mr. T) and has directed various other film projects, gives us an excellent look at the larger Los Angeles area at a time when the art of b-boyin’, pop-lockin’, emceeing, DJ-ing and graffiti street art really impacted the lives of a lot of minority youth. Featuring star appearances from West Coast hip hop pioneers Ice-T, Egyptian Lover, Chris ‘The Glove’ Taylor, Super AJ and Dupont as well as a massive cast of b-boys including Adolfo 'Shabba Doo' Quiñones, Michael 'Boogaloo Shrimp' Chambers, Bruno 'Poppin’ Taco' Falcon (one of Michael Jackson's personal dance instructors), Ana 'Lollipop' Sánchez, Unique Dominoes, Hugo aka Mr. Smooth, Heckle & Jeckle Twins, Carson’s Blue City Crew (who later became Boo-Yaa T.R.I.B.E.) and more.
An anthology of five tales of terror, each originally produced for video. The titles are "Something's Fishy," "Coffee Break," "Who's There," "Jonah's Dream," and "Think Twice."
