Hip Hop International ‘s 2017 – DANCE COMPETITION

The World Hip Hop Dance Championship is an international hip-hop dance competition created in 2002 by Hip Hop International. Countries that have participated in the past are Dominican Republic, Greece, Cyprus, Chile, Italy, Mexico, France, Japan, Switzerland, Morocco, Philippines, United Kingdom, China, Canada, Germany, Australia, Ireland, Malaysia, India, Colombia, South Africa, Nigeria, New Zealand, Denmark, Spain, Russia, Portugal, Netherlands, Argentina, Brazil, Trinidad and Tobago, Poland, Uruguay, Thailand and the United States of America. There are four sections of competition: hip-hop for adult, varsity (ages 12–17), and junior (ages 7–12) crews, popping for solo dancers, locking for solo dancers, and breaking for adult crews.

In August 2015, new countries, Gabon, Panama and South Korea, Kenya, among others, participated for the first time, joining a record 3000 contestants from 50 countries.[1] South Korea’s, Lock ‘N LOL won gold in the mega crew division.[1]



Hip-hop first emerged in Brazil in the low-income outer suburbs of Sao Paulo in the 1980s. Rio produced its own rappers, but a definite groundswell of support for the music among Cariocas, as Rio natives are called, has been building in the past few years, just as the focus on Rio’s more famous urban music genre, called “funk,” has shifted to Sao Paulo.

One attraction of the music is its sense of rebellion, another its profanity. “Rap does not need censorship. You can say what you want. You can talk about drugs, about sex, about anything openly,” said Bernardo Romero Neto, 32, a rapper called Ber MC with the Cartel MCs who previously studied law. “There are no rules.”

Music Bank in Brazil features Korean Hip-Hop group M.I.B

Music Bank, a popular Korean music festival, hosted a special World Cup episode that featured some K-Pop stars performing their hit singles at the HSBC Arena in Rio.

The World Cup Music Bank special will serve as extra motivation for the South Korean national men’s soccer team.
The organizers and stars want to support, cheer, and send encouraging words to the national team in order to give them the momentum and the fighting Korean spirit to win against their opponents.

The Korean hip-hop group M.I.B received a huge welcome from local fans upon arriving in Brazil to attend the KBS “Music Bank in Brazil” concert.

M.I.B, which consists of Kang Nam (main vocalist), 5Zic (leader, rapper), Young Cream (Vocalist, sub rapper) and SIMS (lead rapper), made their official debut in 2011 with their song “G.D.M” (Girls, Dreams, Money)

Ten years after the release of the Oscar-nominated / Hip-Hop Culture’s certified classic Brazilian slum drama City of God,
directors Cavi Borges and Luciano Vidigal catch up with the film’s cast in the documentary City of God — 10 Years Later. Several of the movies stars have gone on to success in Brazilian television and movies. But the documentary isn’t all sunny tales of fame and fortune. Many less fortunate residents from the first film have been arrested for hustling, purse snatching, and even armed robbery and shootouts with police.

Check out the Brazilian Film festival website for scheduled screenings June 1st-7th.
