Organized and produced by Mark T. Elliot, Levant Obulie’, and Fayzo Medea Sirkas – the whole point of the battle was for “Poppers, Strutters, Turfers, Jookers, Flexers, Brukup, Pop Lockers, Boogaloos, Robots, and all other styles that have any popping influence…No PREJUDICE. No AGENDAS. No FAVORITISM. No COLLUSION. No EXCUSES. $$$Cash Prize for the Winner$$$.” Looking at the posts in the GO HARD or GO HOME Facebook Group, it sounds like everyone came together for a SPECTACULAR EVENT!
