The Breaks was a big enough hit when it aired on January 4th that VH1 has picked it up for series!
The Hollywood Reporter revealed the news earlier this morning (February 16) on the back of some really strong ratings. Based on Dan Charnas’ comprehensive The Big Payback: The History of the Business of Hip-Hop, The Breaks follows the stories of Barry Foray (Wood Harris), Deevee Van Putten Jr. (Mack Wilds), and Nikki Jones (Afton Williamson), three upstaters dipping their toes into the bustling 1990s hip-hop scene.
No word on a release date just yet, but expect more great things coming soon. Peep our Verse Behaviors with Phonte Coleman and Antoine Harris and our interview with Mack Wilds below.
