Check out my other website for exclusive gear! Every couple months I will be dropping fresh exclusive shirts and hats that will not be dropped again. I repeat WILL NOT be dropped again, these items will be first come first serve and once they are sold only those who have them will be the lucky ones! =)
I came up with this idea for Visionaries as another way to express myself other than dance. Ive been B-boying for over 17 years now and I love B-boying but that is not my only way of expressing myself through art. I think it is super fresh to see people walking around events or just walking around my neighborhood rocking a tee that I designed. I want this brand to have a meaning so everything I drop will be fresh and have a positive meaning behind it!
I want to thank NastyRay of InspirationIsFree and Mex from TheBboySpot for the Inspiration and advice. I will be making this clear strictly for the Visionaries, those who believe in their dreams and go for it. Those who see no boundaries and knock down the obstacles put in front of them.
This guy has been consistently winning since last year! I got to give props where its due, Menno's unique style takes him to the top winning Chelles battle pro this past weekend and earning him the very first spot in Undisputed World Series Battle. Menno is hands down one of the most original cats in the game right now and thats what makes him stand out. I appreciate originality and I have to shout out all of the hustle kids/ def dogs because every member of their crew has their own flavor and thats what a B-boy crew is supposed to look like. I tip my hat off to you Menno and your crew, you guys keep repping correct for Holland!
The Undisputed battle is finally here! This has been something these prestigious events have been trying to get organized for a long time now. Ive been hearing about it for awhile but never knew if things would start rolling but thanks to this recent organization of all of our promoters and sponsors getting together amazing things can happen.
Props to R16, OUTBREAK, BATTLE OF THE YEAR,CHELLES BATTLE PRO, IBE, UK CHAMPS, FREESTYLE SESSION AND BC ONE!
This is really a beautiful moment in B-boy history, the recent organization of our events and great sponsors involved have sparked a fire in the bboy community especially in the US where things have been a bit quiet after the 10 year anniversary and last ever Outbreak hip hop festival. Ive seen b-boys all around the world getting hype and training harder than ever. I have to say the energy worldwide feels great.
Thanks to all those who have giving their all to this scene and this culture! We appreciate the love!
Squadron wraps up the year with a well deserved W!
It is always dope battling with my Squadron brothers whether it be Keebz, or Spee-D or even Kid David! This time around we entered Nasty Ray, Roxrite and myself. It was a bittersweet feeling as we didn't really feel fully prepared with routines and Nasty Ray's elbow and knee were a bit injured, but we still stayed optimistic. We didn't know how well we would do but we just wanted to represent right for our crews and our cities regardless.
One thing is for sure, with BC ONE being the weekend before, I was definitely hype to battle. I think everyone is always inspired for a few months after BC ONE anyway lol. I know for a fact Roxrite wanted to redeem himself from his performance in BC ONE, not that he did bad, but we all hold ourselves to our own standard and I didn't think he was fully happy with how he did, which explains why he did so good at FSS. I think we all had our moments where we took the battle over and we all collectively contributed to the win, Id have to give Roxrite MVP of the battle though, he was on fire!
This was a great honor for me winning my first Freestyle Session ever! Being in the game for 17 years and always wanting to win a FSS was a great goal of mines. It's creating a chapter in History for everyone to remember the FSS 2013 World Champs! Props to Polskee Flavour for all their hard work and for bringing a hard battle in the final. Thank you to Cros 1 and the FSS staff and Thank You Japan!
Another year is wrapped up with the BC ONE World Final!
It was my honor to be a judge alongside Poe One, Lamine, Storm and Ducky! This year was crazy being the 10 year anniversary we had all the previous champions and a few wild cards and qualifier winners going at it. That being said, I had my work cut out for me for the judging as this was probably one of the most important years for getting the judging right. Again I took great pride and honor being picked for such a position and I think I did a great job and I know many would agree.
There were a few close calls throughout the event including Lilou vs Taisuke and Mounir vs Lilou. There were also a few upsets like Lil Zoo beating Neguin first round and Gravity taking Ronnie out first round as well. The night was one to remember as pretty much everyone was letting everything out on the floor, but on guy stood out from the rest and that guy was Hong 10.
Hong 10 is well known for his amazing risk taking moves, but while what he does is amazing, it can also be his worse enemy, because his moves are so difficult he can tend to crash and be a bit sloppy. I think it was clear and adiment from the beginning that hong 10 had been practicing to get his sets cleaner. I think Dj Renegade and myself agreed on not seeing Hong 10 that clean in a long time and after his first round i knew he was going to make it far.
That being said we, from the Bboy community are very proud of our Red Bull BC One 2013 World Final Champion Hong 10!!!
Off to Naples, Italy next week for the Western European Finals going down Saturday, September 14, 2013. Im excited because I've never been to Italy and I know the food is good, the weather is good and the level for b-boys in western Europe is really good as well. Overall always a good time with red bull and the experience to be there on behalf of the east coast and represent the element we bring to b-boying worldwide is always fresh! It is an honor of mine each and every time to be trusted as a judge and I take it very seriously because I know how hard b-boys work to get ready for competition. I compete worldwide myself, and its tough work keeping your body in the best condition possible.
This year the judges will be: Red Bull Allstar Cico, Bboy Venum from Skill Methodz Crew and Myself
