Video: Krumping Takes Over Liberia


Something tells us that the community organized krump battles taking place all over Liberia will never make it onto Vice's war porn radar — no, it's way too human for their exotic "travel guides." We're happy that the dance phenom made it onto our radar — especially because these exciting young people are the first generation of teenagers since the second Liberian civil war. Krumping started in Los Angeles, but through the proliferation of pop images on the internet and TV, folks in Liberia have adopted the frenetic dance style. Peep the video below of kids battling outside of school, and read more on krumping in Liberia here.
