Day 12 - Celebrating Hip Hop History 2013 - How To Defy Gravity

Whassup Peeps?

If you've been following my blog for the last few days, you can probably see a connection to all the elements of Hip Hop Culture. If this is your first time coming here, the element are as follows: 

  1. Breakin
  2. Emceein
  3. Graffiti Art
  4. Deejayin
  5. Beat Boxin
  6. Street Fashion
  7. Street Language
  8. Street Knowledge
  9. Street Entrepreneuralism 
I'm going to go back to element #1 and that is Breakin. I'm gonna keep this one short and sweet today. I'm posting a video clip from the classic Hip Hop movie Beat Street where The New York City Breakers were battling The Rock Steady Crew. Watch it all the way to the end and you'll see these Breakers do some amazing things....and that was way back in the early 80's. The second video shows what Breakers are doing in the present day.
