“A vigil was held in Brooklyn Sunday to remember the two fallen New York Police Department officer. Rafael Ramos had just turned 40 and Wenjian Liu was 32 when Ismaaiyl Brinsley allegedly shot them in the back of the head as they were eating lunch in a patrol car. Brinsley, 28, who had a series of arrests in three states, claimed the shootings were revenge for the deaths of Eric Garner and Michael Brown.
Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams asked protesters to stop rallying until the slain policemen were put to rest. “We want to send a very clear and loud message that what happened yesterday was a strike at public safety and that which we hold dear,” he said. “We are asking all New Yorkers to turn this page into purpose. … All lives matter.” – Internationl Business Time

No doubt Hip-Hop appears to be a male dominated culture; however there are a lot of females in Hip-Hop representing. For example, a while back we released a post on female Graffiti artist MadC from Germany. There are also allot of very well known female DJ’s and MC’s in the game doing it big right now. B-girl’s have even been around since the beginning with female dancers like the Rock Steady Crew’s Honey Rock wells among other.

Recently we’ve spotted two new Bgirls appear on the scene. This video was taken at this year’s Radikal Forze Jam. Every March Radikal Forze Crew throws an international Bboy Jam. At this year’s 16th event there were two B-girls from Japan named Myw and Kanami. What’s almost as amazing as their dancing is the fact that they are so young. Myw is 15 and Kanami is 16 years old. I think it’s a tribute to Hip-Hop’s growth and maturity throughout the world and especially within our younger generations. Hip-Hop is truly forever. Check out their Video below:
