WORD, i heard that, i thought we wouldv had that taken care of with shows like HEADRUSH, but they seem to be as futile in their attempts to reach out & air gigs as some of the many so called HipHop shows are  :-\ i miss Sprite RUSHHOUR, that shit was accurate...

anyhow, im not behind the organisation of this gig, but it has more than my full support, il see if its possible to get some video feed of the proceedings to all the interested cats....much love on the support...keep telling youl niccas, DONT SLEEP ON THE G!

Whoa... big ups....

DEF BOYZ have def carved out a permanant name for themselves in the Grahamstown HipHop community, being renowned not only for their music but for the work they do on the regular in the townships under the "Fingo Rebvolutionary Movement" developing the starndard of life for  the youth there in by engaging them in various facets of the HipHop culture and giving them an oppourtunity to express them selves artisticaly, one of their success stories is in the form of a very very talented group of Break dancers, the BIONIC BREAKERS that have gon so far as representing the eastern cape and grahamstown in various prestigious breakdancing shows...

its more than just HIPHOP in that regard, its societal upliftment....i a**ure you, its going to be CRAZY!
 :D
