See Riddick pop and lock

This is probably old news to everyone else, but I saw the videos of a young, perfectly coiffed Vin Diesel breakdancing for the first time yesterday. Fresh!

I'll get the track suits if you provide the music. we should totally do that routine from the second clip! we could take it on the road.

Hilarious!! Maybe he was in Breakin' 2: Electric Boogaloo. :)

heartbreak - Can we switch it up? Sadly, I don't have any of the works of Kurtis Blow. And I have a really boss track suit (velour!) that I bought a couple of years ago for an 80s themed party.

gmadrid - I'd look, but I wore out my copy of that movie.

NO Curtis Blow? even I have 'these are the breaks'?

I think I have that song somewhere, but I don't have much KB. But I've got Slick Rick, Biz Markie, BDP, LL, Run-DMC, etc. for days.

I was at a wedding recept today. About all they played was New Jack. A lot of Bell-Biv, a bit of Criss-
Cross, "The Humpty." And the kids getting married are in their early twenties. How's that for throwback. They were like, 10 years old.

The whole 90s revival is a bit premature, IMO. Plus, it just makes me feel old.

And, to bring it back to old school hip-hop, one of the things I'm proudest of is teaching KPMD (chronic commentator here) all of the words to "La Di Da Di." I had it on a mixtape I bought from a street vendor in NYC and we'd listen to it in the car on the way to and from our golf class in college. Represent!
