As our April 2011 Art In the Streets issue is getting ready to hit newsstands, we look back at one of the great convergences of scenes when hip-hop, punk, and graffiti fused into this music video. Here you have The Clash, Fab 5 Freddy, and Futura 2000 all together on one track, with graffiti images being flashed and artists being name-dropped by both Fred and Futura.

Here it is, 1982, captures the era, a video by Dean Winkler and Stephan Gosweski. Uptown rap collaborate with the downtown punks. Perfect.
