  • The troubles of ghetto life are accurately captured in this cinematic time capsule, one of the first films to contain rap music. At the time, the rapping took a back seat to the break dancing and one of the many attributes of BEAT STREET is the authentic street moves on display. The locations also retain their street cred, with graffiti covering subway cars and abandoned buildings populating the mean streets. The story concerns a group of Bronx teens using their dancing, rapping, and artistic skills to lift themselves out of the ghetto. Musician Harry Belafonte teamed with David Picker to produce.
