B-Boy & Dance Afficinados might remember Frosty Freeze as a member of the legendary Rock Steady Crew and as one of the dancers during the famous short but exciting Breakdancing scene in the movie "Flashdance". He was the B-Boy who did a move called the "Sucide" where the dancer actually jumps in the air and falls on his back. He was definitely a pioneer and an innovator of the B-Boy movement.

KL was an emcee that was part of the group, "Screwball". He was a well-exceptional emcee that was droppin street bangers like "Hostyle". He and the group were signed to Tommy Boy Records in the mid 90's and worked with great producers like EZ Elpee and Dj Premier. This is what the great Dj Premier had to say:
