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

The Warriors Full Movie

Growing up in the scene, my friends and I wanted to learn as much as possible about Hiphop and all things related to the culture. Rap music of the ’90s was always filled with timelines of the past. Bits and pieces of history for us to discover. Blog: http://www.thebboyspot.com/new-york-street-gangs-of-the-70s/ Below are a few examples: Nas Illmatic intro starts with a scene from “Wild Style” Nas: The Genesis Intro:   Ghostface’s Ironman album quoted “Education of… Read more

BEHIND THE SCENES: CHICAGO’S ELITE, THE STORY OF PHAZE II

Phaze II

Chicago’s own crosstown crew Phaze II celebrated their 32 years of existence earlier this month. The recent occasion reminded us of a very important piece of history shot by Cypher Adikts own JeSkilz 2 years ago. The story goes a little something like this…… Wicked welcomed us with open arms into his home and gave us a Phaze II history lesson of a lifetime. I’ve always known about him and Phaze II, but never really… 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

Bboys T-Co and Flea Rock (Skill Methodz) get arrested in Venice for no apparent reason

flea-rock-t-co-arrested

By now most everyone in our community has seen the video of T-Co(Florida Bboy) and Flea Rock (Skill Methodz) getting arrested in the middle of their performance in Venice Beach California. The question is WHY? WHAT DID THEY DO TO DESERVE SUCH TREATMENT? WHY DID THEY GET SINGLED OUT WHEN YOU CAN CLEARLY SEE OTHER PERFORMERS IN THE BACKGROUND THAT NEVER GOT QUESTIONED OR ARRESTED. Street performing is legal in Venice. Street Dogz (Hitting Crew)… Read more

Memory Lane: USA vs KOREA IBE 2005

memory-lane-korea-usa-ibe-2005

This blog should actually be called THE DAY THAT EVERYTHING CHANGED and I will tell you why. In the early-mid 2000s South Korea came into the scene and blew up in ways no one expected but when they would battle the American bboys the extra respect factor would always come into place. Maybe it was their culture or maybe because the USA created the dance but let’s just say on many occasions at different events… Read more

It’s Called Gentrification – How to Grow The Breakin Community

grow-the-breakin-community

I want to give everyone an inside look into my mind. Lots of people view me as a “business” person but the reality is, I am much more of a community person and my mindset always has been. How do we elevate the breaking community? I seek inspiration in everything: from business ventures that flourished, to the skating community, documentaries, and movies. A certain scene from an iconic Hip Hop film is the backbone behind… Read more
