Legendary Hip Hop | Tight Eyez - Rize

Over the course of Legendary Hip Hop, we've covered bboying, locking, and popping. It's time now to cover another style of dance, near and dear to the hearts of certain readers in the community - KRUMP.

During ABDC6, Judge Dtrix mentioned that Tight Eyez (Street Kingdom) was a living legend for having helped create this dance style, and made reference to a movie Rize. Rize was a documentary in 2005 that helped bring awareness not only to KRUMP, but also the related style of Clowning. While a single movie on the history of dance does not an expert make, I still strongly recommend that you find the time to watch this movie and educate yourself on at least part of the origins of this dance style.

In this clip, Tommy the Clown (originator of the Clowning style), hosts a competition between krumpers and clowners of Los Angeles, judged by the volume of the crowds reaction after each set. Watch for the 3:45 mark when Tight Eyez (in a yellow shirt) comes up and rips apart the stage on behalf of the krumpers.

Unfortunately, due to Youtube restrictions, we can't embed the clip here, but click through here to watch it on Youtube!

Instant Noodles Backstage

During the regular season of ABDC, aside from the heavily edited packages given to us by MTV, we rarely see the creative process behind the routines these crews put on. In addition, beyond backstage interviews, it can be difficult to really see the personalities of the individual crew members behind the scenes. Instant Noodles has invited us into their creative process and the fun times they had when they were creating their Hip Hop International 2011 set.


First we have a video that shows the "labbing" or the creative process of their routine, and how they practiced and worked things out.

On a less serious note, we also have a video by them showing the more lighthearted times they had.
