  2. Thanks for commenting. Just send me an updated profile and I’ll be glad to make any necessary changes.

  3. With all respect to Aby what’s confusing with his story is that Trac 2 stated in “The Freshest Kids” that Salsoul was the first hispanic crew in the BX then when they broke up then came TBB.If I had the money I would have a round table discussion with members from Zulu,Salsoul,TBB,CC,Starchild along with Herc’s original dancers’s like Nigger Twins,Sasa,Clark kent,El dorado mike etc.That would be a true hip hop history moment.

  4. Hey Aby, I am a photo journalist for News 12 the Bronx, Here is a sample of my work….
    Is there any chance Batch (if locked up) will be getting out and be available. I would love to interview him and have him talk about TBB. Many of us believe TBB came out of Salsoul (Tee-Tee Rock Weebo, Vinny, etc…). If that is wrong the true history should be made public. I would love an opportunity to talk to Batch. Any chance of that? My work email is
