Jimmy Fallon celebrates hip hop dance and rap

The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon has been celebrating Black History Month with some fun videos! This week two hip hop elements, dancing and rapping, caught my attention.

First there was Evolution of Hip-Hop Dancing (w/Jimmy Fallon & Will Smith), where Jimmy and Will Smith take us through the history of hip-hop dances. You can spot a number of old school hip hop moves plus a toprock “cameo” of sorts during the move “the I’m About the Breakdance”.

 

Two days later I came across the very well edited video Brian Williams Raps “Rapper’s Delight”. In it I watched NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams rap The Sugar Hill Gang classic Rapper’s Delight — and, yes, he brought two friends along.

[This video is private.]

Did you like the fun hiphop dance and classic rap videos? Which one is your favourite?

Personally I’m a fan of Will Smith and love to dance, but the Rapper’s Delight clip was so well done I think it’s my fave!

IAW helps Western U prove breakdance supremacy at BCAT

This past weekend there was a different kind of aptitude test on campus; The Breaking Clubs Aptitude Test (BCAT) at Hamilton’s McMaster University. Members of Ill at Will joined forces with Ju Rock of Ground Illusionz and Derrick of UWO Breakers to bring home a ‘W’ for Western University aka the University of Western Ontario (UWO)!


Final battle: Western University (UWO, London) vs University of Toronto Mississauga

An excited Rob Loebz, who was also celebrating his birthday, shared the following on Facebook:

It’s the finals y’all. Though we won for Western University, honestly the winners of this event are Stephen Fleg (FLEG) on the One’s and Two’s along with Adrian Bernard (Switch B) on the Mic. Both of them killing it. Respect. Thanks to competitors, organizers and fans.  Check it out!
