Graffiti Nation is the first music video documentary honoring all of our Pioneers from the Bronx and the world and the stages of Hollywood how their hard accomplishments have passed on to everyday people Michael Jackson may have passed away but the electric slide lives on Michael Jackson is the King of POP but also of the best choriagrahpical music video in THRILLER. Graffiti Nation represents all Graffiti forms of art that cannot be erased it is not an easy task to paint with out erasing Graffiti has been a form of expressing one selves from the ART MURALS of today and Art MURALS OF THE PAST – I believe any thing van gogh can do so can a graffiti artist. GRAFFITI ARTIST CAN MATCH ANY ARTIST We all have grown up watching and being involved in the aspects of these great forms and how they effect our lives, as a kid I ran to see brake dance battles or snuck into park jams my passion is like everyone else we loved it. I dedicated my self to create this piece to honor so many.
Graffti Nation is for all ages to see and to enjoy we open up with a poet REINA MIRANDA from TAINO SPIRITs – with her poem THE DAYS OF OLD which she also paints murals of traditional PUERTO RICAN HISTORY follows her passion and love for all the elements .
GRAFFITI NATION IS DEJAYED by HOWIE RONDINONE a friend of mine in which I used to cut class when I was in JHS -141 and John F KENNEDY HIGH SCHOOL to listen to him was awesome as he spun music for us from James Brown to RUND MC and a intro of QUEEN the rock band, we will rock you., As a kid he used to run to the record shops to collect all the break beats or hits on vynil records
Yeah vynil wow . his passion is his music
When you see Graffiti Nation as I was told by so many viewers I wanna go back to those days or I’m going to get me a pair of addidas sneakers or my le tigre shirt man. Grab a card board box and do some up rock moves or back spins. .Children have seen this film and walk out understanding the Roots of hip hop in 30 minutes Brake dancing today is the biggest form of street dancing that cannot and will not fade, it has transformed to so many styles of dancing today , it was also represented at the Academy Awards by our own Bronx product Jennifer Lopez.
The Bronx needs to get it’s credit for it’s part in history of dancing art, music and originality of freedom of expression from the days of Kool Herc AFRICA BAMBATTA KURTIS BLOW GRAND MASTER FLASH CHARLIE CHASE– to the times of LL COOL JAY , 50 cent Jay Z and FUNK MASTER FLEX and many others like the Beastie Boys to EMINEM and rap groups like the The Fantastic 5 MC ‘s to cold crush brothers sugar hill gang to Public Enemy and Wu-tang Clan No other genre has been representing the world like hip hop and
GRAFFITI NATION is helping to do that from the
BRONX TO THE WORLD – GRAFFITI NATION DEDICATED TO ALL THE PIONEERS OF THE PAST PRESENT AND FUTURE.
WITH THE HELP OF OUR COMMUNITY AND FANS and PIONEERS
WE LOOK TO BRING THAT GOLD MAN CALLED OSCAR TO THE PLACE WHERE HIP HOP WAS BORN IN THE BRONX
AND PLACE IT AT THE BRONX MUSEUM FOR ALL TO SEE AND MAYBE
ONE DAY THE HIP HOP MUSEUM WHICH SHOULD BE BUILT
