We Can Get Down

I'm taking this show on the road.  B Boys Keith Alford, John Chen, Dan Cao rock styles at Lehigh University, Bethlehem PA, July 2011. That's me in the background, flipping "Peter Piper," a Kraftwerk medley and some Arthur Baker madness. It is a B Boy showcase for "Pass the Peas," my sociology class on Hip Hop culture that I have taught at Lehigh for the last 9 years.

Bonus Beats

This B Boy performance was like- boom!- let's do this.  During a holiday department party at Lehigh I was DJing, these guys came in during their breaks from their jobs and threw down.  I love all the elements that make up this vid: The eagle-eye view, the checkered floor, the back n' forth "Apache" being bumped through my man Fearless Jones' borrowed home stereo and, most of all, the wild styles of Keith and Iz.
