My Thoughts on Wining the * The Cypher King Award & Highlights of "The King of The North" Dance Event..! =)

 

My Words & Thoughts on Wining the * The Cypher King Award at "The King of The North" (KOTN) Dance Battle Event/Jam thrown by Chicago Tribe & Digital Nativez.. 

" I Came Only with the ������Intention to #BugOut, #Vibe, #Express.., to allow that which is within to ☀Shine ��Outwardly, ❤Honestly, ✨Openly & ��Truthfully..!" - Daniel "BRAVEMONK" Haywood - PHAZE II / Awesome Style Konnection (A.S.K.)
Brave Movement : Chicago / Worldwide...

Felt Good Closing out the Year 2013 on such a Strong Note & Getting Ready to Come into 2014 On an Continually Stronger One..!


Respect, Honor & Props to My Crew "PHAZE II : Crosstown Crew" Representing that Night with One Representative as a Judge (Micah), Another Entering into the Battle & Making it to the Elite 8 (Pete) & Myself (Brave Monk) Taking Home the Cypher King Award..! =D

Big Ups to the Fam & Crew Alkemy for Representing Hard as well, with Excentric & Weezy going Head to Head in The All Styles Dance Battle, Pitting Student against Teacher with Weezy (The Student) being Chosen as the 1st Place Winner & Excentric (The Teacher) taking a Close 2nd..!

Of Course I Can't Forget to Throw some other Highlights which included Shaggy of Rhythm Attack rising from an Under-Dog in the BBoy Scene to throwing some Fire & leaving Noticeable Burns & Marks on the Floor; working his way to the Elite 8 & into the Semi-Finals where he battled against fellow crew-mate Man of God in a pretty close Duel. In the Finals you Had Man of God (Rhythm Attack / Motion Disorders) Vs Evol (Brick Heads / Motion Disorders) which resulted with Evol taking the Win for 1st Place & Man of God taking 2nd Place in the BBoy Category...!
