1. WATCH: “Big Fun In the Big Town” – 1986 Hip-Hop Documentary (Official Trailer).

    If you’ve never seen Big Fun In the Big Town before, and you consider yourself a fan of the Hip-Hop, watch this clip now. Really. The film is a superb 1986 hip-hop documentary produced for Dutch TV shot entirely in New York City, and features Mr. Magic, Marley Marl, Grandmaster Flash, Run-DMC and Jam Master Jay, LL Cool J, Biz Markie, Roxanne Shante, Russell Simmons, MC Shan, Schoolly-D, Doug E. Fresh & the Get Fresh Crew, the Last Poets, and more. We had the pleasure of screening Big Fun In the Big Town at the Maysles Cinema in Harlem two years ago with the director, Bram van Splunteren, former Def Jam/Rush director of publicity Bill Adler, and the great Schoolly-D in attendance. But Five Day Weekend is doing the public service of making it officially commercially available on DVD for the first time this May, and has cut together some of the film’s highlights in a trailer. Peep it… after the jump…
