What is Krump?
Willie "Fudd" Hodge answers:
"I looked it up and it says: Krump is a street dance from Los Angeles this and that but I'm like... Thats aint what i feel. Krump is Buck to me, and what is Buck? The nickname for riding a bull, you see the sporadic movement and it's uncontrollable. But you can see all the energy from it. Horses do it, and THATS what we do!”

Krump is a freestyle dance form popularized 2001 in the streets of South Central, Los Angeles (USA), that is characterized by free, expressive, exaggerated, and highly energetic movement.
The youths who originated krumping, 'Tight Eyez' and 'Big Mijo', saw the dance as a way for them to escape gang life and to release anger, aggression and frustration in a positive, non-violent way. This was an opposition to street violence, which was prevalent due to violent gangster activities.
With the cinema documentary 'RIZE' (2006) by the Hollywood Director "David LaChapelle," Krump has spread all around the world.
Today, Krumping has world wide influence in the dance culture, but Krumping still has difficulty gaining acceptance by our society as an art form. Primarily, because people do not understand this dance form and its spirit.
