Brand new music video from up and coming Cambridge crew Justify The Cause.
JTC’s latest video shows the guys chilling on a warm summers day and represents typical summer days spent in my hometown, the Bridge. Nice summery vibes on the video, good rhymes and tight production handled by JKD and Twiggz (also the first MC on this video) the 2nd rapper in this vid is my man Courtz. The video is filmed and edited by my Generation iLL crew mate, the man behind www.designsteez.com Steven Watts. Play it, share it, enjoy it, play it again and have a great summer while the rain is at bay!
I think it is safe to say that in 2011 Changubis (formerly known as Vicious Victor) made a massive splash in the bboying ocean. I first saw 17 year old Victor on the footage of the ‘Red Bull BC One: USA Qualifier’ where he fought his way to the final battle against El Nino, taking out several well renowned veterans of the US bboying scene in the process. After this Victor started popping up everywhere and doing really well at some of the biggest events in the world including ‘Battle of the Year’ and ‘The Notorious IBE’ Victor is a breath of fresh air to the scene as he seemed to come up relatively unknown and is now known and respected by dancers all over the world.
Victor came to the UK in March to do a few battles and teach workshops, we caught up with Victor at an iLL Sessions workshop in Cambridge and here is what he had to say

It’s been a few days since our last update, we needed a break over Xmas but are back on it now. There’s a back log of posts to add, here’s the first…..
After months of preparation the Cambridge based b-boy crew Generation iLL finally had its inaugural event: ILL Sessions – The Christmas Jam. The breaking event of the year took place in Cambridge on Sunday December 18th, 2011.
With DJ D-Bo on the decks and hosts Swifty and Curious George warming up the crowd on a cold December day, the atmosphere was electric.
Dancers had travelled from all over the UK to participate and with all 32 open spots taken a host of hungry dancers pitted their skills against a handpicked selection of 16 b-boys and b-girls.
With an array of different styles, each battle was going off, each round showing the crowd something special and why breaking is such a dynamic and entertaining art form. If you’re into breaking keep your eyes on Ill Sessions events, we’ll definitely be supporting in future!
