    Street Dance Magazine e streetdancemagazine.it si sono posti lobiettivo di colmare un gap cronico nella scena street dance italiana. In un momento in cui linformazione frammentaria e confusionale, abbiam voluto aprire unampia finestra sulla streetdance italiana e mondiale, valorizzando il punto di vista e le esperienze dei pi grandi artisti internazionali, dei professionisti e degli eventi pi meritevoli di considerazione. Attraverso le loro parole, siamo sicuri si possa fare una buona comunicazione, ricevendo stimoli e ampliando la nostra conoscenza e consapevolezza. Senza informazione non c cultura.

  • What does it mean to be an OG and which responsibilities come with that?The meaning of OG is a wrong term today in hip hop. OG originally stands for Original Gangster, this is what it really means. Now they use this term referred to someone with a history from the past. I dont want to be an OG. I want to be the present.

    The classic hip hop culture members in Europe always talk about the hip hop culture of their past generation in a past perspective. Dont you think it would be better to take the best from each generation living the present? Well, I can agree with this looking at the past. You dont forget it and it helps shaping the future. If you look and learn from the past it will only help you to know whats real and whats not. You say its best to look to the best of each generation, but what does it make you the best is knowledge and love for what came before you and what comes after you, not just the movement.

    Youve been many times in Italy, what do you think about how Italy lives the hip hop culture?I cant really answer this question, cause I havent really been there to see people living. I just can say something about dance competitions Ive seen or judged. Living hip hop is more than just competition. Competition just brings people in the same place, but this doesnt mean youre living hip hop.

    Old vs Young, Experience vs Hunger. Whos gonna win?If its a battle, it all depends on the moment, but we cant say someone wins cause its older or younger. The hunger for knowledge of what your doing is always going to win instead.

    What do you think about people calling themselves dancer/teacher/coreographer having no experience, or people who teaches a style without any study of it before? How to stop that?I call them non-artist. They have no love for what theyre doing, cause if they loved it that much they would actually take the time out, to learn all about it out of the dance they are teaching as well. There is no real way to stop them, unless dancers start asking questions about what they are learning, about the steps they are learning.

    Cosa significa essere un OG e quali responsabilit comporta?Il significato di OG nellhip hop oggi ha una terminologia errata. OG in origine sta per Original Gangster. Ora questo termine viene usato per riferirsi a chi ha una storia nel passato. Io non voglio essere un OG, voglio essere il presente.

    I membri pi anziani della cultura hip hop in Europa parlano sempre di comera la cultura hip hop della loro generazione e guardano sempre al passato. Non credi sarebbe pi giusto prendere il meglio da ciascuna generazione vivendo il presente?Beh, posso essere daccordo con questo sguardo al passato. Non bisogna dimenticarlo ed aiuta a modellare il futuro. Se si guarda e si impara dal passato ci aiuter a sapere cos reale e cosa non lo . Dici che sarebbe pi giusto guardare al meglio di ogni generazione, ma ci che ti rende migliore la conoscenza e lamore per ci che cera prima e dopo di te, non solo per il movimento.

    Sei stato molte volte in Italia, come pensi si viva la cultura hip hop nel nostro Paese?Non posso realmente rispondere a questa domanda, perch non sono ancora stato abbastanza per vedere come la gente vive. Posso parlare per i contest di danza che ho visto o giudicato. Vivere lhip hop pi della sola competizione. La competitivit porta le persone nello stesso posto, ma non significa che stiano vivendo lhip hop.

    Vecchio contro Giovane, Esperienza contro Fame. Chi vince?Se si tratta di un battle dipende dal momento, ma non si pu affermare che chi vince, lo fa perch pi vecchio o pi giovane. La fame per la conoscenza di ci che stai facendo invece vincer sempre.

    Cosa pensi delle persone che si definiscono ballerini/insegnanti/coreografi senza avere alcuna esperienza, o di chi insegna un dato stile senza averlo mai studiato prima? Come fermare tutto ci?Li definisco non-artisti. Non hanno amore per ci che fanno, perch se lo amassero davvero si prenderebbero il tempo per imparare tutto

  • 5Any advice for dancers and for the becoming dancers?My advice is simple. Just dance for only one reason: because you love it that much, and if youll do this and if youll call yourself a dancer then you are one. There is not a becoming one.

    quello che c da imparare anche al di fuori della danza che stanno insegnando. Non c un vero modo per fermarli, a meno che i ballerini non inzino a fare domande su ci che stanno imparando e sui passi che stanno imparando.

    Qualche consiglio per ballerini e futuri ballerini?Il mio consiglio semplice, per ballerini e futuri ballerini. Ballate solo per una ragione: perch amate farlo, e se lo farete per questo e vi definirete ballerini, allora lo siete. Non ci sono futuri ballerini.

  • 8On the 23rd of February in Italy Dance@Live took place. Can you introduce us a little this event?Dance@Live is one of the biggest 1by1 battle in Japan in the last since 8 years already and I won twice. Now theyre getting bigger and they added more categories, for college students, kids and a crew battle.Since two years. Its a big event, a good concept. I think Japan needs something like this to join the battle rules and to open its mind. It works.

    We used to say: When you think youre doing it well, there will be always an asian guy who is doing it better than you do. Why?Speaking for japanese people, we train the foundations of dancing, no matter which style is, before we get into a style we learn from each category how to move your body, how to catch the beat and the rhytm. I think its because we train for years, so asian people - especially japanese people - get this level.After that we get the tecnique. So at the beginning theres just the basic, which is very important. But now I found out that there is too much focus on the basics, sometimes we need more creativity to express ourselves. Because we learn moves from foundations and basic, not from our mind, and we need to work on that. Thats my opinon for Japanese people. But all the Japanese level is really good.

    How to bring a little bit of your strong discipline in Europe?For us its a traditional thing, a culture thing. We are not lazy, we study for hours, its our culture. We learn how to stay humble all the time, we have to respect everything: respect for what youre doing. Thats why we have a really strong discipline. Here the people like dance, like the music, they have discipline also here, but just in a different way. Japanese people is always doing something, always busy, but sometimes its better here. Because we learn how to dance like work, or study, without a feeling it. Dancing starts from inside. So we enjoy the good side of that, but we also have to cope with the bad one.

    Questanno in Italia, il 23 Febbraio, c stato il Dance@Live. Puoi parlarci un po di questevento?Da otto anni Dance@Live uno dei maggiori battle 1vs1 del Giappone, io stesso lho vinto due volte. Ora si sta ingrandendo e si sono aggiunte delle categorie, per i ragazzi del college, per i kids ed un crew battle. Da due ann
