Rize

Synopsis: Reveals a groundbreaking dance phenomenon that's exploding on the streets of South Central, Los Angeles. Taking advantage of unprecedented access, this documentary film bring to first light a revolutionary form of artistic expression borne from oppression. The aggressive and visually stunning dance modernizes moves indigenous to African tribal rituals and features mind-blowing, athletic movement sped up to impossible speeds. We meet Tommy Johnson (Tommy the Clown), who first created the style as a response to the 1992 Rodney King riots and named it Clowning, as well as the kids who developed the movement into what they now call Krumping. The kids use dance as an alternative to gangs and hustling: they form their own troupe and paint their faces like warriors, meeting to outperform rival gangs of dancers or just to hone their skills. For the dancers, Krumping becomes a way of life--and, because it's authentic expression (in complete opposition to the bling-bling hip-hop culture), the da

- You know this, man!

Everybody go and give Malik

some birthday hits.

I'm just playin'.

I'm just playin'.

I'm just playin'. Y'all stop.

Y'all better back up.

You have to remember.

I created this on my own.

I started from the ground up.

No one offered me no money.

No one gave me a dime.

But I'm perceived to be

the richest man on Earth...

and ain't got a dime.

You ready for that?

Let me see you break it down.

You ain't gonna break it down?

Back in the days,

I had my share...

of being, I guess you

can say, a drug dealer...

coming out here and

gettin' involved with drugs.

I came out here

to become big time...

because I saved my money...

and was like one

of the big drug dealers...

where I got

my nice cars and stuff.

And I always liked

to show off...

to say, "Man, look what

I have gotten," you know?

That was back then.

I always say God

gave me the opportunity...

'cause either you end up

shot, dead, and killed...

or you go to jail.

And thank God

that I went to jail.

And when I went to jail...

I said, "This is not

the place for me"...

and I changed my life.

I prayed. I asked God

to give me another chance.

I didn't know

I was saving kids' lives.

But if you look at it,

yes, you are...

'cause that kid

come dance with you...

who wouldn't dance with you...

and you were straight

to that kid.

"Hey, I catch you in a gang,

you are in trouble.

"If I catch you

even claiming anything...

"I don't want you

to wear them colors."

And they listen to me,

and they do it.

So I guess you could say

that saved his life...

because if they would've

wore that color...

they would've went over

to that neighborhood...

they would've got shot,

they would've been dead.

It's the bottom line.

Everybody say break it down
