Renegades of Funk

Renegades of Funk

Il Bronx and the roots of hip hop

In the Bronx of the early seventies, the Bronx’s gangs signed a truce . In the liberated areas of the urban ghettoes youth began to compete by inventing a new style in dance, music and art spray that laid the groundwork for the emergence and spread of the then emerging hip hop culture. Renegades of Funk traces the key steps of this creative explosion through the testimonies of the pioneers of the old school . From Trac2 to Tracy¬†168, from Charlie Chase to Rodney C ! , from Rammellzee to Busy Bee . Stories , memories, reflections and round tables make a fresco more colorful than graffiti on a subway train, more spectacular than a Bboy move, more addictive than a DJ battle, more articulate than any MC on the microphone.
