SXSTV powered by BroadbandTV is proud to announce partnership with a new Open Styles battle league out of Sacramento, California called, “Legends In The Making.” Legends in the Making (LITM) creator Paul “Koncept” Guintu, from Sacramento, California and co-founder of The Goodfellas crew, has set out to change the idea of these battles by using more of an open styles, freestyle format with a unique way for judges to choose the right winner at these events.
“Legends in the Making (LITM) is a Hip-Hop dance battle league. The battle culture is an important aspect of our community. As it continues to evolve, it is important that we dancers lead ourselves to do the same.
As freestylers and battlers, we must push ourselves to make sure our next round is better prepared and stronger than our previous one. This is the sole foundation of this league; we are providing a platform in which dancers are given the opportunity to work their way to the top,” says Koncept on L.I.T.M. Facebook.
“Legends in the making is going to be bananas! My goal is to make a battle league as legitimate as possible. No room for bias decisions, no room for for being unfair. You win, you win. Give dancers a chance to go to championship. Give dancers the ability to express how they want, go home and keep labbing. I want to also push the intensity of a battle, because during a battle you fight to win. You need attack, character, crowd play,” says Koncept.
