Wild Style

Wild Style was the first Hip-Hop motion picture. 

Released theatrically in 1983 by First Run Features and later re-released for home video by Rhino Home Video, the movie was directed by Charlie Ahearn and featured Fab Five Freddy, Lee Quinones, the Rock Steady Crew, The Cold Crush Brothers, Patti Astor, Sandra Fabara and Grandmaster Flash. 

The protagonist "Zoro" is played by the legendary New York graffiti artist "Lee" George Quinones. An early version of the 'Wild Style' logo appeared in the Fall of 1981 when Charlie Ahearn hired graffiti legend Dondi to paint the 'window down' subway car piece that appears in the film. 

The Dondi piece was the inspiration for the animated title sequence designed by the artist Zephyr in 1982. The 'Wild Style' logo was designed by Zephyr and painted as a huge 'burner' mural by Zephyr, Revolt, and Sharp in the Summer of 1983. 

Wild Style is widely regarded as a film of great historical and aesthetic significance due to it's portrayal of legendary Hip-Hop icons in their ascendancy, as well as it's profound documentation of an emerging sub-culture. 

You can find more information about Wild Style from the Independent Movie Data Base here.

Or visit the Official Wild Style website here.

The movie is available for purchase here.

Calle 13 Wins 5 Awards at the Latin Grammy's

Puerto Rican alt-hip-hop duo Calle 13 swept all of its nominated categories Thursday at the 10th Annual Latin Grammy Awards.

The act went five-for-five at the awards, which were held at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, and took home trophies for record and album of the year, winning the top prize for its politically charged third offering, "Los De Atrás Vienen Conmigo."

Although most people have labeled Calle 13's music as reggaetón, they have tried to distance themselves from the style.

Their music has featured elements from jazz, bossa nova, salsa, cumbia, tango, electronica and others.

In their recent tours around Latin America they have added different musical elements according to the place the band is playing in, yet many of their songs carry the traditional reggaeton "Dem Bow" beat.

Singer Residente is reluctant to label their music in a specific genre, instead calling it plain urban style. He has a clear preference of hip hop over traditional reggaeton and both he and his brother justify it by saying that only three songs out of fifteen songs in their eponymous debut album, as well as four out of fifteen songs in their album "Residente o Visitante", feature reggaetón beats.

You can purchase their third offering and newly crowned album of the year here.

Wishing you continued success!
