MTV’s Sway does his best Cyrus impression in this ambitious and infectious The Warriors-inspired video for Ninjasonik‘s “Moshpit”–plus light-sabers! Warriors-throwback is always in style in rap (can Puffy come out to play?) but it seems extra timely this week considering that the new documentary Rubble Kings, which covers the 70s ‘outlaw era’ that inspired it–is screening tonight in NYC (9pm! get info and cop last minute tix here, if you think you can make it) as part of the HBO NY Internationl Latino Film Festival.
Most notably Rubble Kings (watch the trailer after the jump) may be the first thorough telling of the peace treaty which was the real-life antecedent of Cyrus’s speech in Van Cortland Park…and which paved the way for the creative explosion of hip-hop culture. (Interestingly, the movie was actually adapted from Sol Yurick‘s 1965 novel of the same name–a possible case of art inspiring life inspiring art). So if you can count, put the light-sabers down and dig it, suckers.
