Seattle Weeklymassive monkees
Randy Jackson Presents: America’s Best Dance Crew, Season 4, premiered last night on MTV, featuring nine dance crews from across the country including Seattle’s very own Massive Monkees. For those who are unfamiliar, the show operates with the same basic premise of Randy Jackson’s other side project, American Idol. It’s extremely exciting to see Massive Monkees featured as one of the nine crews on a show with such broad national exposure as they are such an important, if unsung, establishment in Seattle’s hip-hop culture. Locally, their crew includes a vibrant and active collective of dancers and musicians– One Be Lo, DJ DV-ONE and DJ BlesOne are some such members–and internationally, Massive Monkees have garnered numerous accolades, including winning the World BBoy Championships in 2004 against Supercrew (the group that was named America’s Best Dance Crew back in Season 2.)
