The story of the delinquents who created the most powerful culture in the world today.
New York in the late 1980s. The era of Andy Warhol and Jean-Michel Basquiat has come to an end, and two subcultures, hip-hop and skateboarding, are beginning to emerge as if to fill the void left there. At first, there was a strong image that hip-hop was for blacks and skateboarding was for whites, but the opening of Mars, a club that played hip-hop, which was rare at the time, led to the birth of rappers such as Wu-TangClan, Nas, and Notorious B.I.G. After the release of “KIDS” and the launch of the skate brands ZooYork and Supreme, the cultures of the two, who had similar lifestyles, gradually intersected, and skaters began to listen to hip-hop like rappers dress up in skate brands. . And the way of life of young people who were called delinquents has now created the most
influential street culture in the world.
Harold Hunter, a New York legend skater who passed away in 2006 at the age of 31, appeared in the 1995 movie “KIDS”. With this movie as a trigger, New York’s skate culture will be known to the world at once. In this work, Rosario Dawson and Leo Fitzpatrick, who also appeared in “KIDS”, appear in interviews, and images of Harmony Korine in his youth are also used. In addition, gorgeous people who lived in the streets of New York in the 90s, such as artists representing hip-hop in the 90s and skaters representing the current street fashion world, appeared in interviews. It also includes footage from the
as-yet-unknown days of Jay-Z, Method Man, BustaRhymes and more. In addition, Eli Gesner, one of the founding members of the skate brand ZOO YORK, will be in charge of the narration, and the 90’s hip-hop producer Large Professor will provide original music.
