Vincent Gallo Michael Holman Break Hip Hop Dance Set Pose

Only A Few Hours Left To Fund The Graffiti Rock 30th Anniversary Kickstarter!

Alright, so here’s the skinny [cap] young b-boys and b-girls. Graffiti’s pioneering, first-ever variety show, Graffiti Rock (1984), is turning 30 next year, and it needs your help to get its story remastered and out to the world. If you’re a fan of hip hop culture in any way shape or form, it’s pretty much your religious obligation to help bring visionary Michael Holman’s pinnacle of urban expression back into the cypher again.

Before Yo! MTV Raps, before any rap-related things on BET, and way before YouTube’s plethora of hip hop shows, interviews, and shorts, there was Graffiti Rock.

The Graffiti Rock 30th Anniversary edition Kickstarter campaign is personally asking for your help to reach a pledge goal of $50,000. The plan is to remaster the originally aired episodes (featuring one of Run DMC’s freshest television performances, Kool Moe Dee and Special K of The Treacherous Three, and The New York City Breakers) along with a full length documentary Graffiti Rock: The Untold Story about the memories and reactions of today’s hip hop legends and their first encounter with Graffiti Rock.

Your support won’t go unrewarded, of course. Those that contribute can expect dibs on some very special edition hip hop memorabilia like a signed vinyl recording by Kool Moe Dee of a remix of the Graffiti Rock theme song, limited edition posters and T-shirts, and a reproduction of a Graffiti Rock Press & Production Kit. And for the biggest contributors there’s even an opportunity to spend time with Michael Holman in New York City and get personally credited in both Graffiti Rock, The 30th Anniversary Edition and Graffiti Rock: The Untold Story. B-boys and b-girls all over the world, you know what to do!

Help Michael Holman and Graffiti Rock reach their goal of $50,000 by pledging here:
