Beat Street starts off with Kenny, Cholie, Luis and Ramon getting ready for house party in an abandoned apartment building. They noticed an uninvited guest named Lee, showing off his breakdancing skills with his friends crashing the party, which turns out to be a full on brawl with a rival group. Kenny's ultimate dream is to be able to perform in the top nightclubs in New York City. He meets up with a composer and music student, Tracy, who has a strong admiration for Lee's passion in breakdancing. She invites him to an audition for a television show. Lee gets excited about this and decides to bring his friends along, only to find out that his performance will not be aired on TV. Kenny and Ramon get so mad that they decide to steal the tape of Lee's performance and leave the building.

Tracy tries to apologize, but she finds Kenny answering the door to Lee's home. She tells Kenny that she never promised that Lee was going to be featured on television. Later on, Kenny and Tracy begin to have romantic feelings for each other and have a romantic evening together. Tracy then offers Kenny a job by allowing him to work with her at her studio on a computer keyboard system. Unfortunately, Kenny accidently deletes her work and decides to leave the studio.

Things take a different turn when Kenny and Ramon decide to hang out and do some spray painting. As soon as they paint the lead car of the train, they notice a rogue graffiti artist named Spit re-painting over their work. Ramon and Spit get into a fight, causing both of them to get killed by rolling onto an electrified rail, leaving Kenny petrified.

Kenny decides to cancel his New Year's Eve performance in respect for Ramon. Instead, he decides to turn his lucky break into a celebration by celebrating Ramon's life.
