      @ Purple Hulk: STFU and stop embrassing yourself, homeboy… If you hate B-Boying, you hate Hip-Hop, simple as that… Do you even know what Hip-Hop is? B-Boying is an element of our culture.. the Hip-Hop culture, which obviously, you’re not a part of… and what’s up with all this “gay”, “little men” name calilng about? Are you an undercover fag, or what? Dancing is not gay… not dancing is gay… Sick of all this dancing? Punk, you hate it, because you can’t do it… You must also hate emceeing, dj’ing and sick ass graffiti pieces?

      You’re WHACK and a lame motherf’er…

      You simple minded little toy… you must not understand the Hip-Hop culture… if you did, you would be in awe of the things B-Boys can do!

      Go listen to Britney Spears you fag! Go listen to Justin Beiber, you homo! Leave Hip-Hop alone, bitch!

    Fictionalized? Are you retarded? Real HipHop is the 4 elements dumbass. You even know what those are?

    You are an example of a damn 90′s baby snap poppin no homo RAP fan, you arent hiphop.

    RSC is HIPHOP. Real fuckin HipHop. You diss them, and you’re HipHop? LMFAO, GTFOH.

  • Purple Hulk

    I DONT LISTEN TO SNAP MUSIC DUMBASS
    IM JUST SICK OF THE DAMN DANCING, IVE ALWAYS THOUGHT DANCING IN ALL FORMS IS GAY

  • Lazy

    I don’t like you when you’re angry, please stop typing all caps PURPLE HULK you’re such a scary e-thug.

    Anyway, whatever u think of b-boying (break dancing) it still is one of the elements of hip hop. What kind of person has a beef with dancing “in all forms,” it sounds like you’re in the closet if you don’t even like when the females dance.

  • Purple Hulk

    LET ME REPHRASE THAT
    MEN DANCING IS ALWAYS GAY

  • Rednose pit bull

    ok you think break danceing is gay,good for you,no shut ur damn mouth,all you fucks know how to do is hate..yall hate on everything that you dont think is gangster…i dont like danceing either,but thats me,dont mean its gay…i know some break dancers that are out there shooting motherfuckers and gang banging,i know they aint gay,just because you dont like it dont mean its gay…and about the picture,yeah dudes under the other guys legs,big deal,its not like they are naked..its not like they kissing or holding there dicks or anything so shut the fuck up already..you dont have to like all aspects of hip hop,but at the same time theres no need to hate on it or run your little mouth on the computer over it….thats as lame as it gets right there…..fucking lame ass hater bitchs

  • Purple Hulk

    DAMN, YOU DIDNT HAVE TO WRITE A ESSAY OVER YOUR HURT FEELINGS.
    BREAK DANCING IS GAY, AND YOUR GAY IF YOU CONDONE SUCH GAY ACTIVITIES

    IM SICK OF THE DAMN DANCING

    To Q-Buro you say you have a picture of all your buddies naked at the park,hey dude you’re on the wrong page, look for the gay websites some where else and to Purple Hulk you’re just hating because you can’t breakdance,you probably grew up listening to Madonna or shit like that and you never knew how breakdance so that’s why you’re hating. Rocksteady is Hip Hop and anything that was being established in the late 70′s and 80′s
