WORDS FROM THE WISE: JEREMY HAVIKORO

“Hip-hop has the potential to realize revolutionary social change in the world. There is such a strong sense of community rooted in the essence of our culture, but it has been lost amidst competition and fame. Until we place value on the word community, and back this value with action, we will remain this beautiful culture that undermines itself. In a cutthroat world, it is difficult to take the risk in working for the betterment… Read more

SUPPORTING THE COMMUNITY, PAYING AT THE DOOR.

I’ve been wanting to write about a major problem we have in the breaking community… INDIVIDUALS WHO REFUSE TO PAY AT THE DOOR.

ADVICE TO THE YOUNGER GENERATION: MAIN STREAM IMPACT.

On part two of our advice to the younger generation, I (Mex) want to speak about the music on the radio and music videos online (or where the used to show them…on TV). Growing up in the 90’s and early 2000’s turning on the TV to tune into MTV or BET was not about stupid reality shows or bad music videos. Good rap (Hiphop) music was at an all time high. 2pac, WuTang, Biggie, Nas,… Read more

ADVICE TO THE YOUNGER GENERATION

I (Mex) realized that many of the recent blogs have been about jams and competitions. A few days ago it kind of “hit me” that I have to keep balance. A blog should be about news and concerns in the community and not always on some “SportsCenter” reports.
