We decided to write a special blog for these 6 amazing women. We’ll be using Mount Rushmore as a point of refence and since Mount Rushmore only has 4 faces on it we’ll be removing 2 bgirls, but… Read more

TBT: BEHIND THE SCENES: CHICAGO’S ELITE, THE STORY OF 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.

                      REST IN PEACE to JOEL STIGALE                                             THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING

Don’t really know what to say, don’t really know how to say it. Under normal circumstances I could write and write about the impact Joel and Catalyst Hiphop had in the South Florida Hiphop Community over the last 15 years. Joel Stigale: a friend, a brother, a mentor, a role model. For the last 15 years, every bboy/bgirl that has come out of South Florida has a direct connection to Joel. Joel provided us all… Read more

MAD NICO – THROWDOWN ROCKERS

When speaking about European break legends the names Swift Rock, Storm, Evo, Mauritzio, Emilio, Karim and Freeze are often mentioned, but there is another EU 80’s break legend that left his mark. This Sweedish bboy is none other than MAD NICO from Throwdown Rockers. His style, flow, and delivery where straight raw. Dope to the point and always funky. Some would say a bit unorthodox, but Nico made it look so fresh and natural. Nico… Read more

Cesar along with his crew Air Force Crew (such a dope name) put Los Angeles on the map becoming one… Read more
