HELP SAVE THE STYLE WARS DOCUMENTARY........



I ENCOURAGE ALL READERS OF MY BLOG TO PLEASE DONATE TO HELP RESTORE THE MOST IMPORTANT HIP HOP DOCUMENTARY OF ALL TIME STYLE WARS . AS LITTLE AS $1 WILL HELP THEM ACHIEVE THEIR GOAL OF $28,000.  PLEASE CLICK ON THE LINK BELOW TO VISIT THE SITE AND MAKE A DONATION.
http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1254583771/style-wars-the-outtakes

STYLE WARS was originally edited to its 69 minute length from about 30 hours of 16 mm film that we shot in 1981 and 1982. Hours of exciting and wonderful scenes in the extra footage that didn’t make it into the finished film need to be restored. There are many shots of trains and some surprising masterpieces rescued from oblivion.

Hours of additional amazing footage are in the archives.Like these outtakes, from the 2-disc DVD set::





There are more scenes from the B boy battle at United Skates of America between the Rock Steady Crew and the Dynamic Rockers, and more interviews with Skeme and his mom, Dez, Kase 2, Shy, Seen, Dondi and all the other kings and characters that people have grown to love.

But this history is threatened. The original footage is damaged and fading. Fortunately, it will be possible to repair using digital technology. It will cost $28,000 to save and restore the outtakes. Saving the best outtakes is an important component of our overall project to restore the entire negative of the film and make an HD master which will preserve the record of the first painted trains in their original vivid colors.

Directed by Tony Silver and produced by Tony Silver and Henry Chalfant, STYLE WARS was awarded the Grand Prize for Documentaries at the 1983 Sundance Film Festival. The film is considered the indispensable document of New York Street culture of the early '80s, the record on film of a golden age of youthful creativity that exploded into the world from a city in crisis.

RIP STEVE JOBS

"Remembering that I'll be dead soon is the most important thing I've ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life, because almost everything--all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure--these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose"

LEGENDARY MC SHA ROCK OF THE FUNKY FOUR + 1 - PRESS RELEASE



FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

By: Andrea L. Arroyo

The ‘Mother of Hip Hop ’ MC Sha-Rock is back and on a mission. With the release of her autobiography titled “Luminary Icon “and a movie in the works, MC Sha-Rock’s book, depicts a true story of a young female growing up in the 1970’s Bronx, New York, during the ground-breaking years of what we all know now as, Hip Hop. You will experience the journey of young teenagers/entrepreneur’s who was coined as Gladys Knight and the Pips of Hip Hop. The Funky 4 + 1 more, grew to become one of the most influential groups who paved the way for hip hop artists of today. MC Sha-Rock decided to write her memoirs, because she feels whole heartedly that it is her children’s history as well as the world’s history.

In the 1970’s a young Sharon Green better known as MC Sha-Rock became the 1st Female Pioneer, Luminary MC on the mic. Sure, there were other females out there that could rap, but Sha Rock was the 1st to pick up a mic at a major party and make a stand for all female MCs to follow.
Ced-Gee of the legendary Ultra magnetic MCs said “She had the realness, Sha-Rock made females relevant…She set the tone so that female MCs would be taken seriously.” With this in mind, she has earned the right to be called the 1st female MC and the ‘Mother of Hip Hop’. To all media, DJ’s, MC’s and fans of the Hip Hop culture; if you are not familiar with whom MC Sha-Rock is and her contributions to Hip Hop, do your research. MC Sha-Rock is relevant to the Hip Hop culture, music and industry.

“But Sha-Rock, I got to give the props to her. She’s not only legendary; she’s a pioneer, an Icon and a female MC. “You dudes need to take a lesson from Sha-Rock. She changed my life” Quoted by Darryl “DMC“ McDaniels from the legendary group ~Run DMC~

*MC Sha-Rock* is affectionately known and referred to in the
Hip Hop community as the Mother of Hip-Hop.

*MC Sha-Rock* is the innovator of b-girl and fly girl cultures

*MC Sha-Rock has influenced many major artists including: Deborah Harry
of Blondie, Run DMC, MC Lyte, The Beastie Boys, Q-Tip, LL Cool J,
Kurtis Blow, Jay-Z, and Sean "P-Diddy" Combs.

*MC Sha-Rock* has many firsst as a pioneer; which include the following:

1st Female Pioneer MC to set the standards and raised the bar for all female MC’s,
in a male dominated arena

1st Female Pioneer MC to be a part of an all-male Hip Hop group/The Funky
4 +1 More. They were known for being the 1st organized and synchronized Hip Hop group

MC Sha-Rock was the 1st Female Pioneer MC from the streets of the Bronx, New York, to go full circle
in a MC/rap battle.

1st Female Pioneer MC to use the echo chamber behind her voice, and every
one followed

1st Female Pioneer MC to have a record deal world-wide

1st Female Pioneer MC to introduce Hip Hop to other cultures,
nationalities and genres

1st Female Pioneer MC, along with The Funky 4 was the 1st rap group to appear on a
national television show, which was Saturday Night Live hosted by Deborah Harry
of the group Blondie.

*MC Sha-Rock* as a member of *The Funky 4 + 1 more* set the
standards for what Hip Hop is today.

* MC Sha-Rock has been labeled by her fellow peers, as the most celebrated Pioneer Female MC of all times.
