Ceasare la ron Willis, known to many by the alias of Tight Eyez and Style Ripper. He’s a Krump dancer, but not just your average Krump dancer. Tight Eyez was the one that started it all. He is one of the best Krumpers ever to hit the dance floor. Wanting to touch lives with this dance, Tight Eyez collaborated with Big Mijo to create Krump.
Big Mijo (a.k.a. Jo’Artis Ratti) was another person that helped make Krump what it was today. He was a Clown dancer back in the day, which helped him stay out of trouble. But later on he collaborated with Tight Eyez and made a new style of dance, Krump. He felt that it was a calling from God to be part of something this big.
Tommy the Clown
Thomas Johnson, whose stage name is Tommy the Clown, is exactly how the name sounds, a clown. He created Clowning after he spent five years in jail due to trafficking in drugs. Dancing was his way of reaching out to teens on the street and giving them an alternative to street violence. With this he was able to give them more opportunity in life with brighter days ahead.
