September 4-6, 1998 the New York City Breakers hosted the
Back to Mecca Hip-hop conference in the Bronx. The venue
was a classic skate rink, The Key, just off the 6 line in
the South Bronx.
Along with b-boy circles, dope mcing and and djing there
was a writers panel hosted by none other than Phase 2, Flint
707, Coco 144 and Bom 5. Much knowledge was kicked in the
short time allowed for the slide show, which included much
of Phase's Style book.
Some of the west coast originals were on hand to tell their
side of the story, including Bugaloo Sam from Fresno, California,
the home of popping.
There will be more text and flix as time goes on, but for
now enjoy the first installment
of the b-boy flix...
