In the infancy of hip-hop, Brooklyn-born photographer Jamel Shabazz documented the pioneers of music and style who would launch an enduring worldwide phenomenon. Charlie Ahearn, the director of the seminal grafitti movie Wild Style, pays tribute to both Shabazz and those who defined hip-hop before it had definition. The documentary, Jamel Shabazz Street Photographer, is running through August 8 at the Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM). Cost: $13.

“Anybody who doesn’t appreciate the spirit captured in Jamel Shabazz’s photographs doesn’t get New York.” —The New York Times
