This is a short documentary of my trip to New York City for the Octogon battle hosted by Alien Ness (Mighty Zulu Kingz President) and Kid Glyde (Dynamic Rockers President) and my reasons for going..while there I tapped into why others dance and came to the realization of how similar we all are as people and our reasons for being a part of this amazing sub culture we call Hip Hop.
A glimpse into the true essence of the Hip Hop Culture, specifically the Bboy element.

At times in life we go through "Quiet Storms" but after the storms pass we can always rise "Above the Clouds". Life is like a game of chess mixed with boxing "Chessboxing", we have to be aware of every move we make and as we make these moves sometimes we get hit and at times fall down but no matter what we always have to get up.
