IN NEW YORK, there's a war going on. Television ignores it, the papers don't speak of it. It's a war where most of the bloodshed is fictional and all of the fighting is done with needles and micophones. It's a hip-hop conflict between The Bronx and Queens Bridge; all cuts and no bruises where DJs and MCs draw the lines of defence at the Bridge between the two.
