This past Sunday, June 26th, the Pro Breaking Tour made its 13th official stop of the year. The tour hit Boston MA. for United Styles 12 (part of the Floorlords 34th Year Ann). It was the 1st time of the year the tour made a stop in Bean Town and it turned out to be one of the best tour stops of the year.
United Styles 12 took place in the beautiful Hard Rock Cafe Boston venue. The sound, lighting, flooring, records and music memorabilia on the walls gave the event a very special feeling. The event featured a 3 vs 3 competition for 3 plane tickets to Los Angeles California and a guaranteed spot at Freestyle Session World Finals + $1,500.00. 2nd place got $750 with 3rd/4th place taking $450 per crew. The judges Box One(360 Flava), Adverse(KHCA) and Wicked (Phaze II) didn’t have it easy. The talent was world class as the event had bboys from all over the world including the current world champion Victor(MF/Squadron).
Some of the crews representing were: Dynamic Rockers, Beast Coast, 5 Crew Dynasty, X – Feinz, Street Masters, MF Kids, United Outkast and Wolf Pack to name a few. The event also featured 2 expo battles: Pop – Street Masters vs Dux-M – Raw Dominicans. The 2nd battle featured Divine vs Bboy Thriller.
DJ’s for the night included 2 of my personal favorite DJ’s. DJ Fleg (LOZ) and none other than Floorlords own Lean Rock (Horsepower Crew) along with DJ Razor Cut. As it always is when great DJ’s are on the wheels of steal, the vibe is always real. Good cyphers and vibes are always on point at all Floorlords events.
