Home School Kids Workshop (Butler/WA)

September I had the pleasure of building with a really keen bunch of kids. All of these kids are part of a Home School community. Very well behaved and their perseverance through the whole programme was really inspiring.

These workshops had a big emphasis on Strength/Conditioning fundamentals also. It definitely wasn’t easy, but they gave it their all 🙂

Back in July I entered a 3 on 3 Bboy battle with my crew homies Nasa and Johnny Yayo as ‘Mighty Zulu Kingz’.

The event took place in Sydney and is an annual event with competitors from around the world.

We lost in the Semi Finals to the team from Japan, that ended up taking out the event. Much props to them and to the whole ‘Destructive Steps’ team.

Peace

‘SOUL CLAP’ – Wellington/New Zealand

Last month I was given the opportunity to be part of an amazing event that took place in Wellington/New Zealand as part of ‘Matariki’ (Maori New Year). This event was called ‘Soul Clap’ which was an event focused around educating the public on what real Hip Hop culture is all about. It was also held in our national museum ‘Te Papa’.

I got to judge battles as well as teach workshops and speak on a very interesting panel with one of my Mentors ‘Swerve 1’.

Kellerberrin Workshop

Whats up every body!

This was a workshop that went down on the 14th of April. Me and my crew homie ‘Pepito’ (7$) did a mission out to a small community in the Wheat Belt(Western Australia) to work with some of the young aspiring Bboys and Bgirls from there. Amazing talent out there and it was a time i’ll never forget. Many thanks to Adinda Sukardi for the photos.

PEACE

Bring Back Alien Ness

Greetings World,

This campaign is dedicated to helping one of the most influential individuals in Hip Hop history, Alien Ness!

Alien Ness is the President of the Mighty Zulu Kingz and Kweenz, which is the first chapter of the Universal Zulu Nation, the organization known for creating Hip Hop culture. Ness has held this title as President for 16 years, traveling the world competing, hosting and teaching workshops in some of the biggest Hip Hop dance competitions in the world such as B-boy Summit, FreeStyle Session, Red Bull BC One, R-16, Skill 4 Sole, Art of War, IBE, Out Break Europe, Catch the Flava Hip Hop Camp and hundreds more. Trust the list does go on.

Alien Ness, also known as Ness 4, has many titles that describe his many styles and characteristics, but what’s most important is that Ness has continued to learn, teach, burn and preach through the elements of B-Boying, Emceeing & Educating for over 35yrs.

Due to a very long and strong journey and career, Alien Ness has aquired a serious hip injury that will require surgery. This operation has already been scheduled to take place this July 2015.

Ness is one of the few who has dedicated his entire life’s work to B-boying and Hip Hop Culture.  No side job, no corporate career – he has dedicated 300% of himself to us and has never asked our culture for anything.

We the Mighty Zulu Kingz and Kweenz have unamimously decided that it is time for Hip Hop to give back to one of our greatest contributors.

It is up to the community to take care of each other, being an artist does not come with benifits that a full time job might provide.

So — for all the people using Alien Ness’ moves, transitions or tricks to win battles, create careers or simply understand the dance better, let us unify and give back!

We are Hip Hop

Peace, Love, Unity and raising funds
