Michael D. is a very good Krump dancer. He is a beginner but you would never know it by his dance moves. He is from Seattle, Washington and he goes to Franklin High School. He says he got his Krump influence from Tight Eyes and Lil C. His favorite song is J Squad's "Glory to God".
During our search of information for our website we thought what would be better then an interview with a true Krumper. So that is what we did so here is the Q and A with Michael D.
Q: When did you figure out you really like to Krump?
A: I figured out I really liked to Krump in 9th grade after watching "Rize" the movie and trying to mimic the moves.
Q: Did you ever think Krump would make as far as it has?
A: YES, I figured that after how big Rize was and how and Krump was being featured in movies and all over music videos, having it blow up as it did was inevitable.
Q: What is your Krump style?
A: My style is really more like clowning, clowning is more doing moves and physical punch lines, where Krumping itself is more random movement and more violent.
Q: Was Krump your savior or you did it because it was very fun?
A: I just started Krumping because it was fun and I was already into to other styles of dancing.
Q: Have you thought about ever taking your Krump skills to the next level and get a job Krumping?
A: No not really, I think I'll go to college and be something more professional but if an offer was on the table I would go ahead and take it.
