Krush Groove is a 1985 American musical film about the hip hop in New York City. Russell Walker (Blair Underwood) is the owner Krush Groove records and is signing up all the most popular acts in town including his brother's group Run DMC and Kurtis Blow. Rick Rubin is the producer of Krush Groove records and produces a hit song for Run DMC. Russell doesn't have the funds necessary to press the amount of records demand and borrows the money from a hustler. This puts a strain on Russell and Run's relationship and they add to that by both trying to date new singer-percussionist talent, Sheila E. The movie is notable for featuring performances by many prominent hip hop acts from the 1980s including Run DMC, Kurtis Blow, LL Cool J, The Beastie Boys, and the Fat Boys.
