Spit Break Pop

Sometimes there are people involved in a scene who are almost invisible. Yet at the same time, without them, that scene wouldn't even exist. To me, Spit is exactly that to Philly hip hop. I believe it is safe to say that at one time in the 90s he was the ONLY person in the city honing the craft of traditional breaking. I owe a lot of my own dance foundation to jamming with him in the late 90s, and this video is a way for me to say thanks and hopefully shine a little light on the guy. Spit embodies the hip hop spirit of being yourself, having fun and forever honing your skill.

I want to say thank you to another personal mentor and Philly pioneer, Raphael Xavier, for his introduction to the video.
