Set in New York in 1990, VH1’s new show The Breaks tracks the golden age of Hip-Hop when its future was hard to predict.
“The Breaks series picks up where the successful TV-movie leaves off. It’s 1990 New York City at the height of rap’s “Golden Age” of creativity, but corporate America has been hesitant to embrace the genre. Nikki (Afton Williamson) lands a dream job as the assistant to the legendary and out-of-control Barry Fouray (Wood Harris). Meanwhile, her best friend and producer DeeVee (Mack Wilds) is working with rapper Ahm (Antoine Harris)….who is currently under investigation by the police for murder. How far will these driven young people go to rise to the top of the hip-hop world?”
Episode 4 of the series aired last night and was definitely one of the most action-packed so far. Juggy calls Nikki distraught over the death of David. Also, there’s an intense scene where Nikki faces danger when she enters the hotel room of rapper J-Mic. On the other hand, when Barry stops by the studio, he finds DeeVee and Gordy producing D-Rome’s latest track. Watch it all unfold in the latest episode below
