Breakdancing in the Olympics?

Could an element of Hip Hop be an olympic sport? It might just happen in 2024.

Paris’s local organizing committee submitted a list of sports to add to the four year event, which included breakdancing. Breakdancing, or b-boying, is acrobatic street dance done while Hip Hop is played in the background.

The International Olympic Committee needs to approve the list before it becomes a reality. If approved, it will debut when the games come to Paris in 2024.

This Day in Hip Hop: Paul’s Boutique certified 2x platinum in 1999

In 1989, Ad-Rock, MCA, and Mike D released their second studio album, entitled Paul’s Boutique.

Record executives deemed this record as a failure, and they even stopped promoting it because the sales didn’t match the previous album. The Beastie Boys, however got the last laugh when it was announced in ’99 that the album went 2x platinum.

Rolling Stone even ranked the album in the top 200 albums of all time. Looks like the Beastie’s got the last laugh, huh?
