People need to go back to its roots. I could never regret one battle because it always provides that feeling no matter what the outcome is. A few years later the same people would come back to him apologizing because they finally understood what he does – he keeps it real and hip hop. For example, comments on Youtube have turned into an argument and not a opinion. However, as it grew it brought another title — fame.
After that, I will continue on doing what I love and that is spreading inspiration from teaching, throwing events and other art forms. I don’t know the date when this was posted but you’ve got to be kidding me if you expect me to file through his tumblr just to search for it. I come to a point that this competitive thing might not be for me, for I am a man of peace and unity. I respect the fact that you can read this so I will be completely honest with you… The scene has been fucked up to me lately. Soon bboys are left battling for a title against the rest of the world — quite literally.

I was shocked when I heard this. I can understand Thesis’ argument about finding fame. Last night I was watching a few old footage of IBE and there was something utterly disturbing about the fact that bboys tesis were busting out huge explosive moves received so much props from the audience but bboys who stayed true to the culture; who danced, who did foundations and who listened to the music, silently received the deadest crowd you could ever imagine.

After that, I will continue on doing what I love and that is spreading inspiration from teaching, throwing events and other art forms. I respect the fact that you can read this so I will be completely honest with you… The scene has been fucked up to me lately. This reminds me of that interview with Roxrite where he tells us how people used to give him crap for winning battles that he didn’t deserve – his opponents clearly had better moves than him.
However, as it grew it brought another title — fame. Something that should be acknowledged more, truthfully. It’s something that’s often said but never spoke truer than in this context. To have to lose a battle with no objective reasoning apart from being known to have done better is a total disregard of a bboy’s own growth and creativity.
The thing is I know my rank, reputation and most importantly my dedication towards this culture and I refuse to go any further in the competition field until this scene appreciates it for what it is and not what it was. Anyways, mad respect for this bboy who’s taking the initiative of stepping out of the limelight just to save hip hop culture for what it is.
The evolution thewis bboying over the years have created a generation that knows very little about its origins. All the crowd wants are bboys going wild and eventually losing bbog it thessis to dance. Hopefully promoters and people that get caught up in the money pressure and fame understand that it is beyond that and realize why they get caught up in it. Trust me, I have been through it all and yet I still stand strong into what I stand for. In the generation I started in, we would get down for the feeling of joy we would get and because we would love to create new moves, only because tmblr was the funnest part.
People will lose their selves through the fame. I lost a battle recently and was told that the reason I lost was because I am known to have done better. I cannot exactly remember what the heck I was watching but it all came down to superficial feelings of first impressions. Not only because I feel like the battle should be judged on whats happening at the moment instead of the past, but mainly because it shows that evolution has been planted in a soil that cannot adapt and grow… Like I said, I know where I stand in this dance and no one can tell me otherwise and I come to a point theais I must take bigger responsibility and become the planter in my own fields.
The scene is spoiled.

Stay true my followers, and when times turn on you, create your own path. Yeah I said it. It aligned with what I believed especially when he mentioned that opinions of today are derived from Anons who absolutely know nothing about the culture.
Soon bboys are left battling for a title against the rest of the world — quite literally. People need to go back to its roots. This is real talk from the bby as an expression for an understanding of clarity.
I put my mind, body, heart and soul into this culture and as the Thunderbird I will continue tjesis do so in another form. I don’t know the date when this was posted but you’ve got to be kidding me if you expect me to file through his tumblr just to search for it. A few years later the same people would come back to him apologizing because they finally understood what he does – he keeps it real and hip hop.
Then I came to learn that I was totally wrong and I was surprised on how much people felt the same love and joy for this movement. Bboying had always been quite a local scene; titles and reputations gained had always been local.
I will never turn my back and never forget where I come from so I can keep tymblr with my own foundation and knowledge about not only just the dance, but life itself. Below is the full message. But when I put in my time to complete things, I always end up getting fucked.
