Hey Guys! Hope you’re having a lovely Saturday. I have a last minute invite to all of you in the Manhattan area today…it’s Nike’s Mercer Stickball Classic Game. Some of you may remember that I played in their first stickball game in 2010 (Check HERE for that Blog Post).

We also trained at Stickball Blvd in The Bronx, where we learned the history and art of the sport from Bronx legends in the game (Check HERE for that Blog Post). It was an incredible experience and I am stoked to do it all again!
Come by if you are around today and cheer me and my team, The Manhattan Moppers, on…
My fellow MANHATTAN MOPPER TEAM MATES:

The other night I had the distinct honor of meeting legendary BBoy and BGirl, Kwikstep & Rokafella, at the Video Music Box 30th Anniversary. This married dance duo started a dance collective in 1996 called Full Circle and have done a slew of things including writing and producing their own semi autobiographical play titled “Innaviews”.
The New York Times wrote: “…They (Kwikstep & Rokafella) are also funny and very, very smart.Â That playful intelligence is one of the points of â€œInnaviews,â€ a series of devastatingly on-target interviews in which Rokafella and Kwikstep impersonate characters intent on discovering the heart and history of hip-hop“
If you are around, I urge you to see the show. I have yet to see it myself, but it’s imperative we support one of the crucial elements of Hip Hop like BBoying which is unfortunately losing popularity these days.
