The Art of War Theater: The Prodigal Son

blame it on JES7 December 29, 2012

Welcome to the premiere of a new Saturday (2)dope feature: The Art of War Theater. The goal here is to expose to those who may have never seen these classic Kung Fu flicks every Saturday, in similar fashion to what we saw as kids growing up in the 80s / 90s. I’m pretty sure every city and state had a form of this on Saturday afternoons, showing some of the illest flicks that would be thoroughly discussed and “imitated” at school the following Monday. With the Wu bridging the gap between martial arts culture and Hip-Hop, these flicks became a part of Hip-Hop’s identity, and just as important as new releases at record stores were on Tuesdays, so were kung fu cinema classics on TV on Saturdays. For the premiere episode, we set things off with the 1981 piece, The Prodigal Son. Sit back and enjoy. It’s fucking Saturday.
