Legendary street photographer Jamel Shabazz became a worldwide phenomenon with his portrait of the hip-hop generation in his book “Back in the Days.” We follow his journey from youth, to his riveting photographic interactions on the streets and subways of New York, when he began documenting this emerging culture in the 70s and 80s. Features interviews with Shabazz, Fab 5 Freddy, KRS-One and more, with wonderful vintage shots of kids rocking Puma Suedes, Kangols, and pin-striped Jordaches in Times Square.
