Whether you’re a native New Yorker or one of many who have come to adopt the ‘concrete jungle’ as your own, one thing’s for sure — this city will humble you. A hustler’s spirit is crucial to make it here.

For VH1’s latest film ‘The Breaks,’ the New York City grind takes center stage as three friends follow their passion to make it big in the music industry. Set in the summer of 1990, “The Breaks” chronicles the highs and lows of Nikki Jones, David Aaron and DeeVee – who are all scrambling after their dreams, desperate to reach them by any means necessary.

Watch the cast reveal when they fell in love with hip-hop, above.
