Right Now

They Market Hip Hop as a thug thing, like

"Yeeuh, I'll bust a cap and push keys and me and my Lex and my Tec-9..."

and so you know, all the Bboys were left out

The heads would not understand if I told them the importance of breakin' culturally

It is over their head

No doubt, cuz you got a lot of new kids in here

they don't know nothing about old school, or they claim to be old school, they be frontin'

You know what I mean?

I can't really say I invented it, because it was a couple of us that really invented it

Um, in School

In 7th Grade

And because it's a, it's a real artful way to live through the bad times of it

It's almost like a bible, you know what I mean man, eventually you gotta go back to the original scripture

and the original language it was written in

and, we, I think that everybody in the East and the West coast needs to redefine our dance

and then take control of it again.

And the intensity of Bboying, and then just the intensity of our situation in the ghetto...

All of that, piled into one, when you look at Bboying, it makes sense

It's like, "Okay, I can see where this is coming from." It's a lot deeper than just "Well this is fun and I think I'll...

It may start out as that

And getting notice for the culture of it, not cuz its a street dance and its always going to stay in the streets

I think people need this, there's no way you can not need this in society right now.

Coming from the ghetto, where everyone thinks its so negative, and we're doing something positive

You know what i'm saying? How can that not become big, or how can that not become respected in society?

We did the first show that set the foundation of what has become an industry now and we ain't gettin no love...

Why is that?

We were known as Bboys

Bboying is like the ultimate body manifestation of Hip Hop

Not only do you have your feet moving and your hands moving, you are using every single part of your body

Your head, your neck, your intellect and also your character

It's like a charge that I get, it's kind of equivalent to the excitement you get from watching..

a basketball player coming down and he's about to do an incredible move, and you just "ahhhh"

It's like you create this tension and you release it, and visually its exciting

It's an incredible dance, I mean, who in a million years would have thought like wow, spinning on your head..

Or you know, doing windmills, having your feet kick up and propel

Who would have thought that a person can spin on one hand?

It's not a trend, you cannot say it's a trend anymore, it's a legitimate artform.

You can't just do it 2 hours a day, and "Okay I'll do it when I go to a jam.."

We used to eat, piss, sh*t, drink and think bboying.

Whenever you heard Sex Machine, Just Begun, Apache...

For any real Bboy they will feel it in their body and it would just make you dance

Even if you really didn't feel like dancing

To me it's about music, it's about what music does to people

Music is what makes me develop my styles and my moves

The record that comes on makes me feel a certain way and that's the way I feel when I dance

Breakdance is always..it's like... It's Hip Hop. Straight up.

Hip Hop is the name of our creative intelligence

Hip Hop is a culture that started in the Boogie Down Bronx

Hip Hop is the different elements dealing with music,

Rap

Graffiti Art

Bboys, what you call "Break boys"

Or Bgirls, what you call "Break girls"

and also dealing with Culture

And a whole movement dealing with: Knowledge, Wisdom and Understanding as well as

Peace, Unity, Love and Fun..

Hip Hop is beautiful to me because it always challenges America's notion of what they believe

young disenfranchised people to be

Like these people, us, who are supposed to be like the bottom of society, not knowing anything..

Not have like one good idea

Come up with like, Breaking...

I think it really started out of a few brothers or sisters that just didn't care what people thought

You know, just responded to these breaks

Kids with no money, living in the ghetto, living in an urban environment, living in the projects

Creating a multibillion dollar industry

Hip Hop is progressed from when it was just Bboys and Bgirls and DJs and Rappers

To now an international phenomenon

All these other Rap artists started coming around, started making money

And i'm thinking, "Wait a minute, what about Kool Herc?"

He was the one who started this whole thing

Kool Herc is God Father of Hip Hop when we say "Of Hip Hop" we mean the whole rim of things

Cuz he did Graffiti..

He did, he brought the music and his crew did the dancing

So when they say he's the God Father of Hip Hop, they actually mean he's the God Father of Hip Hop

"He definitely is"

When Kool Herc gave a party, everybody be there

And if you search the history, anybody we know as like the first big DJ was Kool Herc

You know, we used to all go to Herc's Parties, we used to dance to Herc's parties

When I was 5 or 6 years old I used to listen to Herc play

He used to play at Sedgwick Ave. in the Bronx

I lived in 1600 Sedgwick Ave. in the Bronx, the building right next door

But I couldn't ever go, but I would always just keep in the back of my mind

this obscure kind of scene that I wanted to be involved in, wanted to be down with

He was starting Hip Hop

We thought of Herc every f***ing where we went, Herc was the man!
