Last night was a real treat – I watched Krush Groove for the first time ever! My verdict? Totally DEF!!
It takes you straight back to 1985 in the best way possible as the movie stars Run DMC, Kurtis Blow, The Fat Boys, Sheila E and has cameos by The Beastie Boys, LL Cool J and New Edition. It’s the story of Def Jam recordings, well a very very loose version of how it all went down. What’s most important is that it’s a helluva great time.
It’s so awesome to see something that I somehow missed as a kid growing up in 2012. You get to watch Russel Simmons (Walker in the movie) form the label, compete with skeezy 80’s record producers, get into money trouble with gangsters and most of all discover new talent like The Fat Boys while falling head over heels for Sheila E.
Check out this clip of The Fat Boys as they rule the school with their rap skills…
So don’t waste anymore time-if you haven’t seen this one that’s jam packed with bad ass classic rap, break dancing and some hilarious 80’s drama you best be doing “the worm” to your local video store or netflix account asap!!
