HIP HOP IS FROM THE BRONX, NEW YORK!!
HIP HOP
1
THE FOUR ELEMENTS
A slogan created by Afrika Bambaattaa and Crazy Legs, to keep Magazines and Industry in check, and promote real Hip Hop culture, and help bring attention to the lesser known elements. But truth is, there are way more elements to hip hop. Like the 5th elements "KNOWLEDGE" and then we have "Human Beat Box" "Fashion" "Promoting' "Making Beats". But the basic 4 elements is what got this culture started. That is why we keep the slogan alive.
2
MC'S, AND DJ'S: ARE BLACK
BREAKERS: ARE PUERTO RICAN
AND GRAFFITI : WRITERS ARE WHITE
These were some of the stereo types that the media created and the public was sold. 
3
RAPPERS ARE BBOYS
Not unless the Rapper is a Bronx Boy or can Break!
4
HIP HOP IS ABOUT, DRUGS, MONEY, CARS, BITCHES, GANGSTAS, PIMPS, PLAYAS. KILLERS, THUGS, ECT.
NOPE. NOT TRUE. WE MAY HAVE PARTICIPATED IN ALL THOSE ACTIVITIES WHEN WE WERE CREATING HIP HOP. BUT WE NEVER RHYMED ABOUT IT, AND YOU NEVER HEARD IT IN A SONG.
HIP HOP IN ITS ORIGIN WAS ABOUT CELEBRATION, PARTYING, HAVING FUN, ECT. THEN AFTER THE JAMS WERE OVER WE USED TO ROB, SNORT, SMOKE, PIMP, KILL, ECT.
5
RAP IS HIP HOP
Rap Music is a product of Hip Hop. Since the early 70's, Original Hip Hop Music is DJ's Cutting Breaks and MC's Crowd Pleasing and Rhyming, Break Beats and Rhymes. The Rap recording industry started in 1979.
6
RAP MAGAZINES ARE HIP HOP MAGAZINES
Unless these so called Hip Hop Magazines start covering allthe elements, they are not Hip Hop in my books.
7
IF YOU CAN'T FREESTYLE YOUR NOT A MC
The truth is, if you can't rock the corwd, write, and perfom, your not a real MC. Those elements of MCin came first. Making records came much later, and the Freestyle aspect was by choice.

8
RUN DMC ARE THE PIONEERS OF HIP HOP MC'S
While they did pioneer Rap and the Recording industry, and helped bring Rap music to the mainstream, The real pioneers of Hip Hop are from the 70's in the Bronx.
9
ZULU NATION IS A GANG
Zulu Nation left the gang era behind, and has since focused on Uniting people all over the world through Hip Hop Culture.
10
THE GRAFFITI IN THE MOVIE BEAT STREET WAS DONE BY A REAL GRAFF WRITER
If you thought the Graffiti in the movie Beat Street was dope, You don't know real WRITING (Graffiti) They only let one Union Artist do all that fake Graffiti, When we offered to re=do the graffiti, we were told "Not unless you have a union card" lol...

11
BAGGY CLOTHES CAME FROM HIP HOP
No, Baggy gear came from the Prison Jump Suits and West Coast Poppers and Lockers.
HIP HOP AND FUNK DANCE
1
THE WORD "BREAK DANCE"
Never existed, the media made that up, The original ter, was GO OFF, BREAK, BREAKIN, and BBOY (meaning break boy, beat boy, or bronx boy)
2
"BREAK DANCE" WAS USED BY "GANGS" INSTEAD OF FIGHTING
Hell Naaaa! Shiet we got into more fight from Breakin! We were safer as gangsters! lol, Turth is We did not intend to settle our differences with dance. It happened naturally after a hug Gang Truce in the early 70's that allowed cats from different gangs to hang out in each others hood, and battling took over. We started practicing more dance than hanging out on the streets, and Negative time off the streets means more positive time dancing. Do the Math. 
3
A YOUNG KID BROKE HIS NECK AND DIED DOING A HEAD SPIN
NO! Show me Proof and I will take this off. It was an obvious deterrent for parents to keep there kids away from Hip Hop and those Ghetto Kids. 
4
BBOYING WAS TAUGHT TO A GROUP OF YOUNG LATINOS BY A CAPOERA MAESTRO IN THE 70'S
(CAPOEIRA IS A FORM OF MARTIAL ARTS, CREATED BY AFRICAN SLAVES AND DISGUISED AS A DANCE IN BRAZIL)
While I do believe that Breaking was indirectly inspired by the African born art form. Breaking definilty has African Roots. But we havent met a BBoy from back in the days that can even pronounce the word Capoeira. The story that best sizes up this argument was: A question was posed to the origina BBoys "the N**a Twins" when asked why don't you BBoys give credit to Capoeira? And there reply wasQuote: "I never met this Capoeira guy that your talking about, but if you bring him to me, i will see if I recognize him." end quote
5
THE 6 STEP AND THE 4 STEP ARE THE ONLY FOOTWORK STYLE FROM BACK IN THE DAYS
No, the original footwork patterns also involved Russians, Zulu Spins, Shuffles, Kick Outs. Combinations of front sweeps and back sweeps and more. The truth is we called Breaking "Going Off" That is similar to todays "Get Buck". So allot of the original footwork looked Sparatic and Freestyle.
6
VIDEO DANCERS ARE HIP HOP DANCERS
(IE, DANCERS IN BRITTANY SPEARS and JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE VIDEOS,AND OTHER VIDEOS LIKE THAT ECT.)
No! We refer to this as "Street Jazz" Please read this article for more info. Click Here
7
BREAKING AND HIP HOP DANCE ARE TWO DIFFERENT THINGS
Breaking is the original Hip Hop Dance along with Freestyle, Party Rock.

8
POPPIN AND LOCKIN ARE A PART OF HIP HOP DANCE
Technically Popping and Locking has it's own history in the West Coast. But in the early 80's New York and California Street Style Dances were united under Hip Hop. So it is ok to say POPPING and LOCKING are HIP HOP. But the original History of Hip Hop dance is with the BBOYS/BGIRLS and FREESTYLERS.
9
ROCKIN AND BREAKING ARE THE SAME DANCE
Rocking came before Breaking, Breaking borrowed allot of verticle steps from Rocking, but Breaking is not the same.
10
THAT BBOY S BACK IN THE DAYS DRESSED BUMMY, WENT TO A JAM WITH A BACK PACK, AND WOULD BREAK ALL NIGHT IN A JAM
Original BBOYS and BGIRLS always dressed fly, Fresh, and went to Jams to Chill and Dance with each other. We only Go Off when the DJ plays Breaks!
11
BREAKIN IS OR CAN BE A SPORT
No! "Breakin is a Funk & Soul Dance done to Funk & Soul Music!" No Music, No Dance, No Dance, No Breakin!

12
POWER MOVES STARTED IN CALI
NO! We never called them POWER MOVES we called it "AIR MOVES" and it all started in NEW YORK. Contious/Windmills, 1990's, Flares, Hollow Backs, Elbow Spins, Head Spins, Axel's (air flares) all New York City.
13
THE WORD BREAK WAS TAKEN FROM A SLANG FOR THE LOCK IN LOCKING
The word Break was Slang for Go Off, Or Fight. But it was also slang for the Percussive Funky Drum Break on an R&B/FUNK/SOUL song. BBoys/BGirls Break on the Break of a record.
14
OZONE AND TURBO WERE THE ACTUAL NAMES FOR THESE DANCERS IN THE MOVIES "BREAKIN" AND "ELECTRIC BOOGALOO"
no
TURBO- IS REALLY SHRIMP
OZONE- IS REALLY SHABADOO
15
CARD BOARD BOXES?
No! Original BBOYS/BGIRLS rocked on Concrete! The whole cardboard Box started with RSC Practicing Spins at Rock Steady Park back in the early 80's. It became a gimick there after. But the real battle happened on concrete.

16
BBOYS SHOULD BROOKLYN ROCK IN A BBOY BATTLE
NO!
17
BOYS WHO CAN'T UP ROCK CAN BEAT REAL UPROCKERS
No! Just cause you keep throwing the same Burn, and score a couple of OOHS and AAHS does not mean you can beat a King Uprock! You are not a ROCKER! You have to study the dance and it's history seperate from HIP HOP! You gotta Burn with Knowledge, Style and Finnese. And pay dues with the OG's of this dance before you call yourself a Rocker.

Bua Paints Hip Hop

Justin Bua is probably the most well known Urban Artist on the planet. I am sure either you, or someone you know has a Bua poster on his or her wall right now. He grew up on the same streets as many original Hip Hop Icons like Frosty Freeze (RIP) and Ken Swift. And has lived the life of a New York Street Style Dancer and Artist. His paintings sell all over the world, and his client list is a who's who of the Music, Athletic and Political world. For this brother to honor me in such a way has touched me deep, because I never really look at myself as an achiever, but more as a person who is still striving to achieve.
