Breakin’ n Enterin’ – old school bboy movie
Egyptian Lover cuts and scratches on the decks while Chris “The Glove” Taylor
explains what is going on, with Ice T rapping!
In our previous post on Arabian Prince – It Ain’t Tough we mentioned a classic breakdance video documentary called Breakin’ ‘n’ Enterin’. Filmed in 1983 by director Topper Carew with bboy Shabba Doo, it has achieved underground cult status as a classic piece of West Coast history.
Featuring star appearances from West Coast hip hop pioneers Egyptian Lover, Ice T, Chris “The Glove” Taylor and Dupont as well as a massive cast of bboys including Shabba Doo, Boogaloo Shrimp, Mr. Smooth, Poppin’ Taco, and Heckle & Jeckle, just to name a couple.
Apart from all the classic old school b boys in action, my personal favourite is as seen in the Youtube clip above – Chris “The Glove” Taylor talking about DJing while Egyptian Lover cuts and scratches on the decks with pure finesse – followed by Ice T rapping live. These are the originals — straight old school baby!
Since you basically have no chance in hell of finding a copy of the VHS – shit is rare, Cold Crush has tracked it down for you! The quality is, well, VHS, so don’t be expecting some high definition plasma TV quality – this is some pure old school grainy film shit with washed out colours. Which is all part of the fun!
