Classic Material: Big Fun In The Big Town Documentary (1986)

This is a documentary that was done by some German guy (I think) back in '86 who was obviously captured by Hip-Hip music and culture. He talks to Run DMC, LL Cool J, Russell Simmons, Ice-T and whoever else was poppin' in 1986. Dope studio footage of Mr. Magic's Rap Attack on WBLS as well as lots of performances, studio, and party footage. The illest shit is watching a very Run DMC influenced duo called The Mystery Crew rapping out front of Russell Simmons office trying to get a record deal, which obviously didn't happen because I had never heard of The Mystery Crew until I watched this. This shit is dope as hell.
