30 years later, Krush Groove still a campy time capsule of hip-hop's start in the '80s

26

October

Some movie anniversaries you just can't believe. Others? Well, 1985's Krush Groove looks entirely 30 years old. Released Oct. 25, 1985, Krush Groove loosely re-enacts the early days of Def Jam Recordings, with Russell Simmons (named Russell Walker in the movie) being played by Blair Underwood.

It's a who-was-who of the early '80s hip-hop scene with cameos by Sheila E., the Fat Boys, Beastie Boys, Run-DMC, New Edition and the first on-screen appearance by LL Cool J. Here's the trailer in all its '80s glory.
