Icey Ice About B Boying

Członek legendarnej ekipy New York City Breakers, który swoją przygodę z hip hopem rozpoczął w 1980 roku, opisuję atmosferę panującą we wczesnych latach '80:
It was about respect bro. Everything was about respect in the streets, that's how hardcore it was. It was a different animal back then. So I expect it to be different today, you know? I don't expect for the Koreans to come out wit the same attitude when they go out there ciphers. By no means. Because first of all they never been exposed to what I been exposed to. None of you have been exposed to what I've been exposed to, you know? And I'm grateful for that. Because what we've been exposed to, a lot of was bad bro, you know? What saved me from a lot of that crazy stuff was because the bboying bro, because it was that hardcore. So in that way it's different. As far as the dance, yo, keep on changing it up, the only thing is that, I don't think I see a lot of dancing, in a lot of the ciphers.
"Cypher" by Ward Jenkins 
Dla mnie, osoby jego pokroju ich słowa są wyznacznikiem jedynem, prawdziwej szkoły (mouvment not a game!). Dziś po 40- stu latach oldschool w konwencji hip hopowej nie musi koniecznie oznaczać poznawania tajemnic tamtych czasów i wszystkiego co tworzyło naszą kulturę, lecz przede wszystkim upodobanie sobie tego specyficznego klimatu oldschoolowych jamów, bez spin, agresji i podziałów. Bez względu co lubisz, czego słuchasz i skąd pochodzisz.

Keep it real!!!!
