Posted on Sun 26 May 2019 in netflix

Kung Faux is a cult television series. The series began in 2003 as a follow-up to a 1999 movie of the same name. Many voice-overs are done by famous hip-hop performers and personalities of the era. It features a "mashup" style of production, incorporating bits of, and references to, other media, such as movies, music and video games. This aesthetic echoes other contemporaneous popular culture, including mashup dance music and hip-hop tracks. The series was produced by Mic Neumann for Dubtitled Entertainment and Tommy Boy Films. Its credentials include performances by Queen Latifah, Biz Markie, and other big names of hip-hop and soul. The bread and butter of the series is edited, shortened, and remixed footage and dialogue from classic 1970s martial arts, wuxia, and kung fu films.

Kung Faux - Career - Netflix

Hunter was born in New York City and grew up in a housing project in the East Village with his two brothers. He became associated with a skate crew that hung out near Tompkins Square Park and Washington Square Park and was first sponsored by local skate shop “Skate NYC”. Hunter first came to public attention in 1989 in a Thrasher magazine photo essay photographed by Charlie Samuels about the New York City skateboard scene. A goofy-footed skateboarder, Hunter was sponsored most notably by Zoo York. Later on he started Rock Star Bearings Co. In 1995 Hunter appeared as Harold in Larry Clark's Kids, a film about teenagers in the East Village. He also appeared in the critically acclaimed TV series Kung Faux performing various voice-overs, and on an episode of the TV series Miami Ink. In the episode he received a tattoo from Chris Garver that commemorated his New York roots and his connections from his youth with the World Trade Center. The tattoo was on his upper arm and depicted the towers with a skateboarder jumping in front of them, with the words “New York City” above, and “Sk-8 or Die” below. This tattoo is also revisited in another episode of Miami Ink that focuses on Chris Garver's tattoos.
