If there is a bboy out there that fully embodies the definition of movement and flow it has to be SKMZ’s own Abstrak. The way he moves, the way he flows; it always appears to be effortless, flawless. Always in control no matter how small the cypher or how big the stage. Abstrak is a true master of movement. Check out the raw footage below.

As a younger dude I know my place and can’t speak on it but one of the illest to ever do it in Europe can. Freeze from Ghost Crew is one of EU’s true O.G’s and he put… Read more

EXTRA! EXTRA! ASK ALL ABOUT IT!!

ask-all

So last night I decided that we needed an interactive and insightful blog. We all have tons of questions of the art-form of Breakin and Hiphop Culture. We tend to ask our friends but, many times most don’t have an answer. Example, why is a 1990 called a 1990?? Seriously, why?! I (Mex) was told the reason why is because it was a futuristic move ahead of its time. I will do my research and… Read more

TBT: TEXAS BREAKING SCENE: FLAVOR 2 BURN

flavor

In the late 90’s the breaking community was not much of a “community”, The scene revolved around 3 states: New York (the mecca), Miami (the vacation destination) and Los Angeles (west coast Mecca). Not to say other states didn’t have a scene, but these states represented the big 3. Few if any knew what was brewing in Texas who at the time were getting ready to explode into the national scene. In 1999 Texas bboys… Read more

TBT: New York Street Gangs of the 70s

new-york-street-gangs-of-the-70s

One can not speak of the roots of Hiphop Culture without mentioning New York’s street gangs of the 1970s. At the time, The Bronx was truly a concrete jungle yet it was there in the middle of “gorilla warfare” that Hiphop Culture was born. Gangs like the Black Spades (Afrika Bambaataa was a BS warlord), Savage Skulls, Savage Nomads, and the Ghetto Brothers control the streets. The movie “The Warriors” is infamous in our culture. Bambaataa went… Read more
