A re-imagining of a classic…
Starring Go-Go, himself, as Cyrus.
Starring the Go-Go Community as The Warriors.
Blamed for Cyrus’ death, the Warriors had an entire city turn against them.
But what was Cyrus saying to the soldiers before he was silenced?
“Can you count, suckas??
I say the future is OURS!
If you can count.
Now look what we have here before us. We’ve got the Saracens sitting next to the Jones Street Boys. We’ve got The Moonrunners, right by The Vancourtland Rangers.
Nobody is wasting nobody. That is a miracle. And miracles… is the way things ought to be.
Can you dig it? Can you dig it?
Caaaannn yooouuu diiiggg iiiittt?
One gang could run this city. One gang! Nothing would move, without US allowing it to happen. We could tax the crime syndicates, the police… because WE GOT THE STREETS, suckas!
Caaaannn yooouuuu dig iiiiitttt????
The problem in the past has been ‘the man’ turning us against one another. We have been unable to see the truth, because we’ve been fighting for ten square feet of ground. Our turf, our little piece of turf. That’s crap, brothers!
The turf is ours by right, because it’s our turn. All we have to do is keep up the general truce. We take over one borough at a time. Secure our territory, secure our turf. BECAUSE IT’S ALL OUR TURF.”
Peace be unto you,
(Can you count, suckas?)
