Storyline

The Breaks series picks up where the VH1 original movie leaves off. It is 1990 in New York City at the height of rap's "Golden Age" of creativity, but corporate America has been hesitant to embrace the genre. Nikki lands a dream job as the assistant to the legendary and out-of-control Barry Fouray. Her best friend and producer DeeVee is working with rapper Ahm who is currently under investigation by the police for murder. How far will these driven young people go to rise to the top of the hip-hop world?

Not that good
27 March 2017 | by See all my reviews

Being someone that grew up on 90's hip hop I jumped at the chance to watch a show about it, especially with Dj Premier producing the soundtrack. But this show is a let down; weak acting, bad dialogue, paper thin (and stereotypical) characters, a real missed opportunity all around. The only saving grace is hearing new Dj Premier beats.
