Welcome to part 3 of our series of exclusive sneak peeks at Rubble Kings–director Shan Nicholson‘s documentary look at the pre-history of hip-hop culture in the Bronx and its roots in the area’s notorious street gang culture in the late 1960 and ’70s. In this third (and final) installment, we get a unique look at the role girls played in the evolution of gang culture into hip-hop culture and the gender politics of the South Bronx, where–prior to the gang truce which set the stage for a hood renaissance of sorts–interaction between the sexes was strictly divided along the lines marked ‘black’ and ‘Puerto Rican’.
