The inspiration for the 20th, was exactly that, acknowledging and paying tribute to the legacy of the Summit's 20 years in Hip-Hop. In essence it was many of our 20th tribute, as Summit has documented our experience in the game over these last 20 years, all elements. Since Summit has always been a Hip-Hop event, in homage to the Bboys and Bgirls, it's important to look at where we have been (what conditions birthed Bboy Summit), and where we are going (what current conditions do we face, where are we headed?). The Summit was my idea and brought to light with the help of Easy Roc, JLove, and SD Zulu One (San Diego Zulu Nation Chapter). I was truly inspired by the plight of the Bboys and Bgirls in Hip-Hop, as they were not being respected by those in their own culture.
In honor of the 20th anniversary of the B-Boy Summit and official kickoff of summer we are bringing the classic Hip-Hop theme: Bonnie and Clyde!
