A lot has changed in the South Bronx, but a lot has also remained the same. The videos are powerful and in the interest of getting to the point I'll draw from the summary of the blogger that initially posted all the video's in succession, much like they are below.
Directed by Gary Weis (bka “The Poor Man’s Albert Brooks”), 80 Blocks… is a relatively unbiased document of Bronx gangs the Savage Skulls and Savage Nomads in the late 70s and, by extension, also serves as glance at in the womb old school hip hop. Rarely seen outside of third generation bootlegs (and a few of those that did see it missed the point entirely), the film has been liberated at last by/for the Youtube generation. Needless to say, it is required viewing, so get your finger out your booty and press play.Hope everyone has a blessed weekend. And a big shout out to Tallness for sending this to a brotha!
