LISTEN: MP3 of Live Q&A with Crazy Legs (of the Rock Steady Crew) at the screening of his new doc "Bouncing Cats"

It's no exaggeration to say that last weekend could go down as the most memorable few days in Boston hip-hop history (especially if you count the cherry-topping Public Enemy shebang at House of Blues last night). On Friday, Slaine shot the video for "99 Bottles" at a sold-out show at Church; on Saturday, M-Dot and Wiz Khalifa rocked for thousands on Government Center; and for three straight days and nights b-boys and b-girls from across the planet battled in the Floorlords-hosted United Styles 6, and celebrated the hometown crew's 29th anniversary.

For me, the crowing moment of it all came on Friday afternoon, when I got to interview Crazy Legs at Fourth Wall after screening the truly remarkable documentary "Bouncing Cats." The film is about his trip to Africa, where, along with Ugandan b-boy and humanitarian Abramz (who is now down with Rock Steady), he brings hope to thousands of young people through breaking. To say that "Bouncing Cats" was powerful and tear-provoking is an understatement; I honestly still can't scrub some of the images from my mind.

If you missed the screening, then be sure to catch the film when it hits theaters and/or DVD. Until then, I hope you enjoy this half-hour Q&A with Crazy Legs. Just be prepared for some real talk; like he says: "Life is not an episode of Beat Street."
