Here’s a little story that must be told: about a legendary DJ crew with so much soul.
Clothing company L-R-G and the legendary Beat Junkies just teamed up to release an insider’s look at the history of the crew in celebration of their 20th anniversary. The nostalgic documentary features interviews from members such as J Rocc, Rhettmatic, and DJ Babu, as well as insight and stories from their peers including Peanut Butter wolf, A-Trak, and DJ Jazzy Jeff. The fifteen minute short film brings us into the Beat Junkies’ past by teaching us about the crews formation, contributions by certain members, and their individual styles—all told through actual stories from witnesses, exclusive performance footage, classic photos, and original Beat Junkies jams. This is a must watch for all inspiring deejays and fans of classic hip hop.
If you can’t get enough of the Junkies, look out for the members in a city near you during their up and coming 20th anniversary world tour. Fans in Philly can get a head start on the festivities by supporting J Rocc and friends (?uestlove, Jazzy Jeff, DJ Drama) at Voyeur on James St., tonight, starting at 9PM.
