In anticipation of the freestyle competition to come in vendor turf, the stage was open to practice.But it was still dope.
At times, there were also circles on the floor with a crowd.
Then things got official.
Meanwhile, artists came from all over for attendees to witness creativity being carried out from start to finish. From initial concept to final execution, these pillars were major attractions, as people of all ages would return throughout the day to see what was happening in the artists’ area.
Of course, that was all happening while the main jam kept up in the performance hall, with one crew after another killing it.
And the other crews always clapped for their stage-exiting competitors.
All while the crowd watched in awe.
