Lenny Williams is going to be at The Allstate Tom Joyner Family Reunion! He talks to the Tom Joyner Morning Show about one of his most popular songs, Cause I Love You and that infamous breakdown that still rocks a crowd, 22 years later.

On the infamous breakdown of Cause I Love You:

“My drummer told me I should break the song down and talk on it and so I did. I’ve used it a little of it in increments (with women). I used to get in trouble.”

The Grammy Award process is a mystery to those outside the voting level of the organization however, ith the 58th Grammy’s looming before us, the Recording Academy wanted to give the general public a bit of insight on the process…check the video!

On Saturday, Aug. 22, the Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts in Orlando, Fla., will host the Red Bull BC One North America Final, the world’s largest and most prestigious one-on-one B-Boy competition.  Sixteen of the best breakers in North America will be competing for a slot in the world final in Rome.  A livestream of the event from Orlando will start at 8:30 p.m. ET on www.redbullbcone.com in both English and Spanish.

Television personality and hip-hop radio legend Sway Calloway will be the evening’s host as the continent’s top B-Boys throw down in hopes of being crowned the Red Bull BC One North America champion.

The North America Final is one of six global qualifiers that will determine who earns their ticket to Rome for the World Final on Nov. 14. Other global qualifiers will take place in Georgia (Eastern Europe), Egypt, Madrid, Seoul, and Peru.

Thousands of spectators will celebrate hip-hop culture and witness B-Boy battles unlike any other. The 16 competitors have secured their spots by winning qualifying cyphers or by invitation based on past performance. B-Boys will defy physics in a series of flips, elbow spins, head slides, dime freezes and everything in between to win over the judges and claim the coveted Red Bull BC One North America title.

The 16 Red Bull BC One North America Final competitors include: JoshSkittle (Honolulu, Hawaii), Kid Cruz (Denver, Colo.), Fléau (Montréal, Canada), DQ (Bladensburg, Md.), Zeku (Miami, Fla.), Illz (Toronto, Canada), Starvin’ Sa-Ewl (Rialto, Calif.), Ben (Las Vegas, Nev.), ICEY IVES (Anchorage, Alaska), Moy (Houston, Texas), Mighty Wealthy (Brooklyn Park, Minn.), Frankie (Queens, N.Y.), Napalm (Philadelphia, Pa.), Rion (San Diego, Calif.), Insight (Orlando, Fla.) and Victor (Orlando, Fla.).

Victor, Orlando’s hometown hero and one of three Florida B-Boys competing on their home turf, is returning to defend his win at last year’s North American Final in Las Vegas. Victor is one of the most accomplished B-Boys competing and a real threat to repeat his victory. The son of Mexican immigrants, Victor’s dad started breaking in the 1980s during breakdancing’s golden age, and he got Victor into the art form early, beginning to break at only 11 years old. It’s been a saving grace and consistent source of positivity in his life. “To win the Red Bull BC One North America Final again would mean a lot to me,” Victor explains. “I feel my chances are high to win in Orlando, but you never know what can happen! I’m just keeping positive.”
