a "biter" was a Zulu-ebonic term from Bronx ghettos first heard in Caanes Film Festival , France 1982 Harry Belafonte movie Beat Street. The biter could be considered as plagerists eg. Spit was a biter that ruined Ramos graffiti bombs on NY Bronx A trains. Then he got zapped with Ramo in the subway. Looking back 30 years woe! A scene when Kuriaki of Rock Steady gets accused of "biting" Lee's swipes & footwork. That battle of fighting escalates..then the big "white" war veteran "dude ,(Tito Reyes conga drummer best friend who died in a fire) , breaks up the fight and "BITES" into a beer can and CHEWS the foil. The kids respond in awe and chill back chanting.."Yo! Thats the BITER man! ( as to say dont mess regardless! ) some rea true ole school history kids!

(as to say dont mess regardless! ) Lee's older brother Double K scolds a notorious Brooklyn dance choerographer for instructing his prestigious contemporary Afro dance class to imitate the style of dance after Lee's free performance. Without due credit or money. Double K Ramos "freezes" the videotape. Double K responds un impressed. "You just a "biter" a biter is someone who takes a bite ...leave all the crumbs."..and then you say all be sayin' you be down wit breakin'!

Which in fact has always been a formula to making movies, distribution, social media posts and news. As hip hop has grown by imiation /biting styles of rap, dance moves, even in general pop culture, payola era, roll and roll, rhythm and blues has only still thrived the market by consumers imitating or "bitin" to style, image or lack of eccentricity for some to fit in socially in a group or among peers.

some rea true ole school history kids!
