First and foremost, it’s always an honor to have Cypher Adikts be invited to be a part of a weekend like this to kick things off. From the get I could sense that things were going to get LIVE! So many dope bboys and bgirls that I have so much respect for came through. We took care of our Bboy business early on in the night, then quickly went back to the essence and broke free from all expectations and we just simply had fun. The party was straight JUMPIN!! Our night in San Jose was truly the perfect example of what I feel Cypher Adikts is all about.
Saturday was the main event, celebrating the incredible longevity of the legendary Style Elements Crew. Easy Roc probably described it best when he said, “this reminds me the early Bboy Summit years”, and I would definitely have to agree with him. The 3v3 battle incorporated the “Last Bboy Standing” concept, which I felt brought a little bit of that raw emotion back into battling. Some of my personal favorites of the night were Bboy House, Bboy Gravity & Thesis. These guys held it down, NASTY!!
The after party was the perfect way to end the weekend (unfortunately, we couldn’t stay for the BBQ). Good times, great vibe, dope music!! Shout out to my brotha’ DJ Wish One, DJ Man Of God and the San Jose Zulu’s for hosting us. And of course it’s always great to catch up with all my peeps. Over all I feel like the weekend had a great sense of unity. So again, huge shout out to Style Elements for an incredible event and again, Happy Anniversary!
