- Rated NR
- Genre: Special Interest-Documentary
- Release Date: 10/27/2015
In the infancy of hip-hop, Brooklyn-born photographer Jamel Shabazz documented the pioneers of music and style who would launch an enduring world wide phenomenon. In JAMEL SHABAZZ STREET PHOTOGRA- PHER, Charlie Ahearn (director of the seminal graffiti movie Wild Style) pays tribute to both Shabazz and those who defined hip-hop before it had definition. More than just vintage shots of kids rocking sneakers and savvy street style in Times Square and Fort Greene Park, Shabazzs photo graphs have hundreds of stories behind them, and Ahearns film gives voice to these images with intimate interviews with Shabazz himself, graffiti pioneer and hip-hop historian Fred "Fab 5 Freddy" Brathwaite, legendary rapper KRS-One, and others.
