Style Wars: The Rise of Hip Hop and Graffiti Art in the 80s

New York City in the early 1980s saw the break out of hip hop and a whole new style of expression for urban youths. A big part of that was the rise of graffiti, where ‘bombing’ became its own art form. The documentary Style Wars takes a fascinating up close look at the players of the day, what they were up against, and how hip hop culture changed the face of the city.
