VH1’s original movie The Breaks doesn’t air for another month, but right now, we’re giving you a sneak peek of the movie and a chance to get to know its cast!
Set in New York City in the summer of 1990, The Breaks follows three friends who share a love for hip-hop. Nikki (Afton Williamson), David (David Call) and DeeVee (Mack Wilds) dream of making it big in the music industry, and they ultimately make it their mission to do so. The Breaks follows the trio’s journey in a still crime-ridden NYC, and highlights the intersection of music’s movers and shakers with those just trying to make it in right at the birth of hip-hop.
