The b-boy/b-girl collective along with Backspin productions will host numerous events including an underground celebrity basketball game (http://www.sohh.com/articles/article.php/9367#), the 2nd Annual Spy Awards, an invitation-only B-boy/B-girl Battle and a free outdoor concert (http://www.sohh.com/articles/article.php/9367#).
Artists expected to perform at the outdoor concert include Big Daddy Kane, Large Professor, Rhymefest, The Beatnuts, GZA, Masta Killa (http://www.sohh.com/articles/article.php/9367#), Ill Bill and various (http://www.sohh.com/articles/article.php/9367#) surprise guests.
"This is a pilgrimage for all," said Rock Steady Crew President Crazy Legs, via a statement. "People come from all around the world to attend the anniversary to bridge the gaps between cultures through hip-hop (http://www.sohh.com/articles/article.php/9367#)."
As SOHH previously reported, Crazy Legs played a key part in the development (http://www.sohh.com/articles/article.php/8634) of the forthcoming videogame "B- Boy." Attendees of the anniversary's festivities will get to be the first to play the game (http://www.sohh.com/articles/article.php/9367#) and show off their b-boy gaming skills.
B-Boy will be released on PS2 and PSP this fall.
