I sold this script to Harry Belafonte and a movie got made using the characters names, but nothing else from my original story survived. Someday I hope a producer will actually produce the real story. It was intended as a slice-of-life drama and a vehicle for showing some authentic hip hop performances from the golden age of the first generation. I wanted many of the real people involved to play themselves, which is why people like Kool Herc and the Treacherous Three appear in the story, as well as Crazy Legs and the Rock Steady Crew.

About the Author

I started out writing black comedy, but I'm best known as the first reporter to document hip hop and the instigator of the film Beat Street. I also founded the Cannabis Cup, organized the first 420 ceremonies outside of Marin County, and launched the hemp movement with Jack Herer while writing some landmark conspiracy articles.
