Chains: A Solid Short Film With Graff Writers And Davey D

This is a solid short documentary that runs barely over five minutes that basically discusses the cultural origins of Hip Hop. This video would be a nice introduction for anyone who needs to provide a basic synopsis for those eager to learn about the culture. I personally enjoyed the guest appearance of Davey D breaking down the origins and influence of Hip Hop culture as he does in his writings. He is truly an Old School Scholar.

The biggest treat of this film is the time lapse graff coverage of LA’s GM5 Crew burning the walls in a skater’s lot during the commentary. Their final mural piece coincided with the discussions spoken throughout the video. It was solid added flavor!

I hope to find and see more work such as this covering all aspects of the Hip Hop culture. There are never enough documentaries and coverage in my opinion. The more the merrier.

Enjoy!
