a sweet lil’ POPPiNG & ALL STYLES jam in downtown Phoenix, AZ. it was dope because even though it was a small event, there were heads from several states in attendance. Cats from CA, NM, and OR came to show face and support – Burst Rock (FunnyBonesCrew), PopNTod (Soulbotics), and OG Ace Rock were kind enough to judge both battles.
*shoutout to 27junkies & the Barauchos for coming all the way from LA — these guys are set up + shut down PRO$! 😀
there were some technical difficulties along with the way with music and the host (his reading/mcing abilities definitely left much to be desired — i think Bgirl Simi, a 12 year old girl, put it best when she said, “he NEEDS to go back to school” lol) but aside from those road bumps, there were some DOPE dancers & HYPE battles in the house that day:
