It’s launch day for Netflix and Baz Luhrmann’s The Get Down – the original scripted drama set in 1977, the beginning of the end for disco and the beginning of hip hop.
Yesterday, we got our hands on a clip that showcased the sisters. Today, we’ve got one featuring the brothers – and a little demonstration of breakdancing. Check it out after the break.
