GET DOWN WITH CLIFF
Born in our Nation's capitol, I spent my early childhood in the Chicago area, where I first experienced the art of bboyin'. I saw other kids breakin' on cardboard and watched bboy scenes from the movies "Flashdance" and "Beat Streat" at a family friend's auto shop.
In middle school and high school, I picked up other street dances, practicing with friends after school and performing at various school functions. I eventually joined up with the crew, Ruffnex, which later joined with, Jedi Clan. We were later renamed to Mindtricks.
It wasn't until I saw a fellow Mindtricks member djay live for the first time, that I found my love for the art of DJin'. Watching and listening to scratches, beat juggles and pure turntabilism was enough for me to purchase my first mixer and turntable set. I owe it all to my fellow Mindtricks crew members for educating me in the hip hop culture, especially bboyiin' and djayin'.
To this day, I continue to dance and djay living by the phrase, "Never stop being a student".
