Cal versus Stanford at the War Memorial Stadium may be the Big Game, but it's not the only regional battle going on this Saturday. Across town at Oakland’s Eastside Arts Alliance, another pair of rivals will face down for bragging rights of a different sort. Poppin', lockin', and fierce gesticulating will be in finest display at the Bay vs. LA dance battle. Out of several rounds of showmanship, California’s victorious street dance will emerge. Will it be the madman-trying-to-escape-a-straightjacket insanity of Krumpin, or the gentler, acrobatic mimicry of Turf Dance?
Representing the Bay Area will be a select crew called the Golden Gigs All Stars including the Turf Feinz, featured in E-40’s recent videos, “Over the Stove” and “Nice Guys.” In Krumpin’s corner is The Hooligan Squad, which you can watch, uh, Ccrraaaccckkkk!! below.
