Cult hip-hop documentary explores the creative explosion that gave birth to hip hop culture. Focusing on the subway graffiti 'taggers' whose art and method defined the rebellious, pride-fuelled streak from which sprang the music and fashion of Hip Hop subculture, Style Wars is reckoned by many to be the definitive look at this phenomenon. To a soundtrack featuring, among others, The Fearless Four, Grandmaster Flash, Trouble Funk and The Sugar Hill gang, the film flits in and out of break sessions, subway taggings, and rap jams, exploring the life and attitude of the youth of New York.
