“SAMPLE THIS” MOVIE TRAILER

sample-715x300

Having been sampled over 200 times (and probably many more without proper credit), the 1973 track “Apache” by the Incredible Bongo Band is often referred to as the most influential record in the history of hip hop. This weekend at the Austin Film Festival, a new documentary called ‘Sample This’ will be shown for the first time, which revolves around the song’s creation, the band’s story, and the influence this mega track had on our culture.

Poe One: ALWAYS A BBOY.

When anyone asks you, “..but what about when you get older?” in regards to your dance, don’t reply to them. They might not understand, but in your head one of the names that should come to mind is Poe One. Poe is 43/44 years old and still going as strong as ever. A true definition of what a “bboy” is meant to represent. Poe does it all and does it with style. The flow, the… Read more

NO IDEA IS ORIGINAL: RESPECT THE ARCHITECTS

resp

“No idea is original, there’s nothing new under the sun, it’s never what you do but how it’s done” is a very well known line by Nas. These lyrics apply perfectly to our community in the sense that a lot of new generation bboys claim moves or take them without giving credit where credit is due. A few years back, I was chilling with Poe One as he was teaching a workshop (amazing workshop by… Read more

Outbreak Europe Hiphop Festival 5 year Ann.

outb

Can’t believe its been 5 years since the 1st edition to Outbreak Europe took place. We still remember the 1st ever edition and how people would question us on why we would have an event like “Outbreak” held in a city and country with not much Hiphop history. One of the answers was, Its about building something new, to cultivate a new scene, start a new journey and not piggy back from cities or countries… Read more

kid-n-skate

This vid was brought to my attention and when I saw it, I knew I had to share it. For far too long has Breaking and skateboarding been compare, two sub cultures born around the same time in different coast. Hiphop Culture has inspired the skateboarding scene since the late 80′s. Shout outs to Kid David for being part of this great project.

RoxRite presents: Yan The Shrimp interview

yan-the-shrimp

In my opinion Yan The Shrimp (All the Most/Russia) is one of the most creative, innovative and original bboys our community has today. In an era when many are screaming, “Do what you want”, “Break how you want”, “Foundation is what you choose” Yan shows us how to do it your way but keep it “Straight Up Bboy”. His flow and style are timeless. 20 years from now when bboys/bgirls see footage of The Shrimp… Read more

Judging Format at Undisputed World Bboy Series Events

undisputed-judging-format

When we created the UNDISPUTED WORLD BBOY SERIES a big topic of conversation was what the judges format would be and how can we make something stand out that does not handicap the judges ability to judge the battle as a whole without taking away from their reputable background. We wanted something exciting that could enhance the battle yet keep it simple, functional and raw. It was decided to use the judges format from IBE’s… Read more
