Jonzi D had been holding it down as an emcee, choreographer and artist for years. He’s a true pioneer of hiphop internationally, and is one of the founding fathers of hiphop inspired dance and theatre. Trained in a variety of traditional styles at The Place theatre in London and now as artist in residence at the Sadler’s Wells Theatre, where is acclamied Breakin’ Convention is held every year. He has continually innovated the art form and inspried a movement. Long before the new crop of shows like Into to the Hoods and the productions of Boy Blue. There was Jonzi D and his and Benji Reid. Still as lyrically potent as ever this film was made by Breeze Yoko when Jonzi was in Paris.

It starts with an explosive introduction from Bizzle, before a frantic passing of the microphone from one MC to another ” I’m undecided as where this appropriation leads the music, but the buttlerfly effect of it all is interesting to watch.
