In my own humble opinion this is a veritable who's who of crack New York talent at the time, blowin' it out to create the right atmosphere for this historical piece of cinema. While it's more famous for the HipHop music, perhaps it's unjustly so. Discover this and let Your socks glide across the floor once more! Thank You Bill and Lee.
