FANTASTIC BOOK!

In conjunction with the 25th anniversary of the seminal hip-hop film, powerHouse Books released this book WILD STYLE: THE SAMPLER! 

Before Public Enemy, before Eminem, before the Cristal, the Bling, before Diddy, Fiddy and Crunk, ... there was Wild Style. A milestone in hip-hop history, Wild Style is the most influential street film of the last three decades. The quintessential street movie was originally released in 1982 and captures the hip hop scene at its birth in the South Bronx. It represents a slice of life from one of the most exciting periods in American culture, with the emergence of new wave music, new painting, hip hop and graffiti, a scene that saw a new generation of talent such as Jean-Michel Basquiat, Madonna and Blondie.

To celebrate the film's silver anniversary, Wild Style The Sampler provides an inside look at the making of the film, it's release, and the reverberations it caused around the world. Narrated by Ahearn, the book introduces us to a cast of characters and outrageous adventures through a carefully curated collection of never-before-published photographs, original artwork, production stills, archival materials, and personal stories from stars Fab 5 Freddy, Lee Quinones, LADY PINK, ZEPHYR, Patti Astor, Busy Bee, Grandmaster Caz, Frosty Freeze, and Glenn O Brien, insights into the film's influence by artists, writers, and musicians including Sacha Jenkins, Carlo McCormick, Grand Wizzard Theodore, Melle Mel, Biz Markie, SHARP, REVOLT, Martha Cooper, Cathy Campbell, Cut Chemist, and DJ Krush, and additional photographs by Joe Conzo, Henry Chalfant, and many others.
