Breaking Habits Crew

From the crew who hosted Arkansas’s premiere breakance/hip-hop jams, “The HOSPITAL: Only the Illest” and “Fistful of Funk,”–Breaking Habits makes a return with their latest installment, “True Grit: Rise and Rebuild.”

A true hip-hop “jam,” (especially in the modern context) is a positive, safe, and family-friendly event that showcases the core elements of original Hip-hop culture and empowers individuals and crews to “get down” and feel the DJ’s music, the graffiti artist’s message, and the emcee’s uplifting words in order to compete and express among themselves in “battles” and “cyphers.”
