When director Tony Silver and co-producer Henry Chalfant delivered the broadcast version of their prize-winning film to PBS in 1983, the world received its first full immersion in the phenomenon that had taken over New York City. The urban landscape was physically transformed by graffiti artists who invented a new visual language to express both their individuality, and the voice of their community. In STYLE WARS, New York's ramshackle subway system is their public playground, battleground, and spectacular artistic canvas. Opposing them by every means possible are Mayor Ed Koch, the police, and the New York Transit Authority. Meanwhile, as MC's, DJ's and B-boys rock the city with new sounds and new moves, we see street corner breakdance battles turn into performance art.
STYLE WARS has become an emblem of the original, embracing spirit of hip hop as it exploded into the world from underground tunnels, uptown streets, clubs and playgrounds. New York's legendary kings of graffiti own a special place in the hip hop pantheon. This film is regarded by many as the definitive document of the emerging hip hop culture, and the continuing struggle to keep its authentic spirit alive.

Killarmy's first album is one of the best produced albums of all time.Its is lyrically sharp and dungeon as can be.I purchased this when it first came out and thought that it was a pretty solid effort.I had no idea that this album would grow on me the way it did.The night I changed my mind on how I thought of this album was the night I sat in the dark and listened to this album on a monster system.I have since practiced this sitting in the dark ritual many times on my favorite albums.Its the best way to listen to music.This album deserves to be recognized as one of the greats but it never will.To many wack cats dominating the radio.I have a felling that this hip hop faze is about over and mainstream america will start listening to something else.When this happens albums like this can be made again.Groups can make their vision shine all the way through an album instead of a couple of wack tracks for the radio and then a bunch of second rate tracks to fill in the gaps.This album is all blazes with no filler.Cop it.If you dont like it at first
