Hardskool 7th February
Last tuesday AOW headed up to Loughborough for the heavy monthly bboy night hardskool. While still something of a circus the night has been gaining a proper rep for the amount of bboys and real heads it manages to pull in. This last one was propably the best yet and loads of people were down showing love.
The format was 2 on 2s and Jez and Will repped AOW and Nate and Rich B2R. Both did pretty well, with Jez and Will beating Swifty and Rekognize in the first round then getting knocked out by some sick visiting turkish dudes. Nate and Rich narrowly lost to Joey D from PRS and some other bloke. I personally felt they won but JD and bloke went on to the final ultimately so they were a decent team. JD tried his trick of balancing his cap on his nose and Nate rinsed him with some deadeye western style shit by knocking it off with his beanie form about 6 feet away. The guys got the chance to throwdown again against the eventual winners, Mouse and Blend but Mouse was on dope form as usual and killed the beat.
I threwdown in the North v. South battle and copped some serious foul-mouthed abuse from the North for my shitness. Whatever, i deserved it but im gonna train my arse off before uni champs. There was also a DJ Leacy R.I.P tribute circle which was awesome, especially for The 2nd Lettah from Cali who locked his little nuts off. Damn i wanna lock, oh well something to learn next year in the home of funkstyles.
A fun night as always and glad that theres such a dope bboy night within an hours drive
