Get down, brother, shuffle those feet, shake a little boogie to the sound of that beat.

Guy Davis and Rae Dawn Chong are brash, bold, and breaking all the rules in this gritty musical about a talented rapper/DJ Kenny (Davis) who is inspired to use his talents to escape the urban ghetto after he meets a young, dedicated jazz artist (Chong).

  • Vin Diesel admitted on Jimmy Kimmel that he was an extra in the movie.
  • Most of the graffiti art that was displayed all throughout the film was not done by real graffiti artists – it was airbrushed by set decorators, however, two grafitti artists were hired as creative consultants for the film, including Bill Cordero – aka “Blast”, and Lonny Wood – aka “Phase II”, (who is also referenced in the movie, during the subway graffiti scene)
  • This project was sponsored by Puma. The original soundtrack LPs have the Puma logo printed on them, reading, “Puma as seen in ‘Beat Street.'”
