Today in Hip Hop History: Breakin’
The film Breakin’ was released May 4, 1984. According to the 2014 documentary Electric Boogaloo: The Wild, Untold Story of Cannon Films, Menahem Golan of Cannon Films was inspired to create this film after his daughter saw a breakdancer in Venice Beach, California, one day. At the same time, he pressured the production crew to complete the film before Orion Pictures released their breakdancing film Beat Street.
It was Ice-T's first film appearance, and the soundtrack of the movie included one of my favorite songs "Ain't Nobody" by Rufus and Chaka Khan.
