How Did This Not Kill Hip-Hop

Back in 1990, someone decided, "Hey, let's make a movie about Archie and The Gang of Riverdale High 15 years after they graduated. Let's make it live action. And let's have Jughead help his kid seduce 13 year old girls via a live performance of the classic Archies hit, 'Sugar, Sugar', but make it all hip-hoppity."

This happened. I was blithely unaware until the AV Club told me so. I assume only the lack of media penetration at the time is what kept hip-hop alive past 1990. Enjoy.
