Some call it tagging, some call it writing, still others call it bombing--it's all graffiti. Whether it's art or not is another matter, but it's undeniably illegal. Tony Silver and Henry Chalfant's historic PBS documentary Style Wars tracks the rise and fall of subway graffiti in New York in the late 1970s and early 1980s.

Wild Style captured the hard core South Bronx scene with its pantheon of hip-hop pioneers: Grand Master Flash, The Cold Crush Bros, The Chief Rocker Busy Bee, and The Rock Steady Crew. Wild Style tells the story of Zoro (graffiti legend Lee Quinones), in his subway art romance with Ladybug (another graffiti legend Sandra Pink Fabara). Fab Five Freddy stars as the smooth impresario Phade.
