Video: Kool Keith dancin’ for Ronald Regan

In the early ’80s, Kool Keith was apart of a NYC breaker crew called Activity and they performed for President Ronald and Nancy Reagan. Back in ’92 Bobbito conducted an interview with Keith and this was brought up. To quote the great Keith Thornton “Regan was a bitch-ass n*gga.”

Peep the video, but be warned there is no sound due to the copyrights. Keith is in the yellow outfit and steals the show around the 2:30 mark. –Philaflava

Props to Memory Man & Tom C3 for the assist.

    I've had this on beta since it first aired and Keith? Respect due but he was the wackest dude in that video. But he's most def a pioneer in hip hop period not just mcing. Wasn't he down with the shack crew? But how can you show this and not mention the other incredible dancers? Floormasters(NYC Breakers)/Magnificent Force were the shit back in the day.

    No disrepect to the other dancers, I just didn't know of them. I didn't even know about this group until the video aired and if Keith wasn't in it, chances are it wouldn't have circulated like it did. Am I right?
