pegged to be the hip-hop version of “soul train”, “graffiti rock” never made it past its pilot episode in ‘84 . however, it did immortalize DEBI MAZAR and VINCENT GALLO, known then as “prince vince”, in tv history before their respective primetime debuts . in that short 23-minute episode, RUN DMC, KOOL MOE DEE, THE TREACHEROUS THREE, SPECIAL K, and the NY CITY BREAKERS among others were all showcased . but the most valuable quality of the entire production was the series of hip-hop colloquialisms flashed across the screen with definitions . good thing too because i was confused .
