Tim Westwood’s Hip Hop culture documentary from 1987. It features rare interviews with some UK rap artists who are pretty much forgotten now, such as MC Crazy Noddy (of Sindecut), Cookie Crew, London Posse, Wee Papa Girl Rappers and many more. There is also an appearance from a young Trevor Nelson and well known US rappers Run DMC.

I don’t condone stripping in any way, but these polaroids are kind of awesome. I promise to post something not from the 70s soon.
These came from a collection of over 400 Polaroid photos of strippers trying out for dancing jobs at a So. Cal club. They were taken from the late 1960′s thru the early 1970′s.
I decided to create a new Flickr account to share this collection with other photographers. They document fashion, interior decor, and a time when bodies were for the most part, natural. The Polaroid film makes for an even more nostalgic feel.
The main interest I have with these photos is the esthetics of an era, not just as titillation. As an artist and photographer I find these women beautiful, daring and sometimes desperate. Each woman here has a story, and each one deserves our respect.
