Red Bull BC One 2010 Champion

Red Bull BC One 2010 Champion | World of Hip Hop | Scoop.it

The thrilling finals saw 16 of the world’s best B-boys descend on the Japanese capital to face off in a series of one-on-one battles. After battles in Berlin, Biel, Cape Town, New York, Paris and Sao Paulo, the stage was set in a city of 230-million people for the seventh edition of the international competition.

 

The two Koreans, Kill and Beast, also lost in their first rounds to Just Do It from Holland and Airdit from Germany. Airdit then took on his neighbour, Just Do It, in the quarter finals, but he lost his shoe – and the round.

In the between the battles, there was plenty to keep the audience pumped: the host Rahzel impressed with his beatboxing show, Japanese Drummers and Funk-style dancers provided a feast for ears and eyes and when old-skool rapper Big Daddy Kane brought all the Battle B-Boys onto the stage in a cipher, the whole crowd got to their feet.

After the break, it was an all-South American semi as Lil G from Venezuela took on Neguin in a tight battle with Neguin just shading it 3-2 in the eyes of the five judges, who included two-time champion Lilou. The second semi final battle was between Just Do It and Luigi from LA with the Flying Dutchman winning with flying colours!

But in the final battle, Just Do It couldn’t keep up with the amazing power, attitude and finesse of the Brazilian Neguin – who worked his magic to become Red Bull BC One champion 2010.

It was a historical night for B-Boying culture as it combined its very origin with the hottest acts of today. Charlie Ahearn who in 1983 made the movie Wild Style which, when brought to Japan in 1983 marked the birth of the Japanese Hip Hop scene, attended the event. Ken Swift, a teenager back then and a member of the infamous Rock Steady Crew starred in it and returned now as a judge.

“Neguin is an amazing entertainer and very consistent,” said Swift. Neguin himself put his win down to his versatility and authenticity. “Everything I see, I can dance. If I see a bird flying I can dance it too.

One Be Lo Releases his new Freestyle Album to the Public - "K.I.C.K. P.U.S.H."

One Be Lo Releases his new Freestyle Album to the Public - "K.I.C.K. P.U.S.H." | World of Hip Hop | Scoop.it

One Be Lo States " That was my mentality when I first started making music in high school, growing up in Pontiac Michigan. 20 years later, that motto holds a different position in the career of One Be Lo.

K.I.C.K. P.U.S.H. was birthed in the wee hours of the night, while most people were resting and preparing for the next workday. After spending long days recording and mixing the LABOR album, it felt like going to Widetrax studio afterwards was more like taking a break from the actual job. The LABOR project is very conceptual. There are many layers in that project, and I expect people to take a while to get all of it. This K.I.C.K. P.U.S.H. is a fun record. Recording it was fun because there was no pressure to do it, but we still maintain the same work ethic. At one point, Pontiac was known for manufacturing cars, that moved people all over the world. Now that the auto industry is a ghost in our town, we carry on the tradition of manufacturing music that will move people all over the globe, whether you have a car or not.

K.I.C.K. (Keep It Cool Kid) P.U.S.H. (People Usually Show Hate) represents the raw energy that inspired me to make music over 20 years ago. We were always self motivated because most people around us didn’t understand what we were doing, or had the crab in the bucket mentality. In some instances we had to KICK down doors and PUSH our way in. For everybody that understands, sounds of Nahshid originate good rhymes and music. Something to interest Lo listeners beyond original recorded networkings. Real emcee’s bring intelligent rhymes to HipHop. Language arts based on Reality. Keep it cool kid. People usually show hate. That’s the motto"
