The “Mike & Dave: Harlem Hip Hop Story” brings to life the true story of Hip Hop Pioneers Mix Master Mike and Disco Dave, who formed one of the first independent hip hop record labels ever, preceding Def Jam founded by Russell Simmons & Rick Rubin, and who also were pioneers in the promotion of Old School Hip Hop Shows and Parties whose classic flyers are part of the Hip Hop Hall of Fame Museum’s Exhibit Collection, whose historic events included performances by many of the iconic founding groups of hip hop history including Grandmaster Flash & The Furious Five, Treacherous Three, The Crash Crew, The Cold Crush Brothers, Master Don & The Def Committee, Kool DJ AJ, and many more. "The film will cover Harlem and NYC Hip Hop from the mid 1970s until the mid 1980s as hip hop exploded into the ‘Golden Era’, and Mix Master Mike & Disco Dave launched and produced many careers during this time period including The Boogie Boys with hit song ‘Fly Girl’, Doug E. Fresh, Biz Markie, and myself and more," stated Movie Co-Producer Rob Base, who also recently produced a Christian Comedy Theatrical Play entitled ‘UnEqually Yoked’ written by Ms. Lynette Blackwell for Rob-Lynn Productions that was well received by audiences around the country.
This documentary story and film project is the brainchild of Kenny ‘DJ Lord Yoda X’ Syder, CEO of FreeDome7 Entertainment and a member of the Legendary Harlem Group The Crash Crew, a part of The Mike and Dave Records family. He is also Road Manager of Rob Base, Zulu Nation, and also serves as a Co-Chair of the HHHOF Artists Relations Committee. The production team has also added entertainment veteran producer and filmmaker Jimmy ‘Spice’ Curry, who has also worked as an executive and recorded with hip hop’s Iconic SugarHill Records in the late 1980s and who also produced the first Bahamian Movie ‘Filthy Rich G’s…’ in 1996. "This unique part of hip hop history will honor and celebrate how two brothers, Mike and Dave, from humble beginnings in the Lincoln Houses in Harlem, changed the game by Promoting Parties and forming their own Independent Record Label printing vinyl records and showing others how to make hip hop a business that is now worldwide," stated Co-Producer Kenny ‘DJ Lord Yoda X’ Syder.
The HHHOF Team and Producers will begin filming this September and the movie & music soundtrack album is scheduled to be completed for Film Festivals and Release in 2017. The Film will also become part of The Hip Hop Hall of Fame Museum Collection for Archiving and Preservation of Hip Hop History. "This will be the first of many Hip Hop Movies & Documentaries, and Television Shows & Specials to be created and produced by Hip Hop Hall of Fame Entertainment and The Hip Hop Hall of Fame TV Channel launching this Fall," stated JT Thompson, Creator of The Hip Hop Hall of Fame Awards TV Show that aired on BET Cable Network in the 1990s, who serves as Founder & Chairman of The Hip Hop Hall of Fame + Museum & Entertainment Complex state of the art development project coming to NYC.
