Hardcore '84: Breakin' (featuring Ice-T)

1984 was no joke. The year stands as one of the greatest 12 months of American pop culture ever. Exhibit A: this amazing dance battle sequence from the hit movie Breakin'. Breakin' was such a box office success that the sequel (the notoriously titled Electric Boogaloo) hit theaters only a few months after the original (both in the calendar year of 1894). The MC hosting the battle is the one and only Ice-T. So the next time someone tries to pop off about Ice-T not being down, throw this clip at 'em. Ice has been representing for years, yo. And he's down with Mariska Hargitay. You can't front on that.
