In April 2011, the Trinity International Hip Hop Festival hosted its biggest b-boy event in its six year history! Headlining the event was a rematch from the Red Bull BC One World Championships 2010 between Boston’s El Nino and Brazil’s Neguin, who ended up taking the world champion title. The event was arranged by two of the world’s largest b-boy organizations: Mighty 4 (mighty4.tv) and Zulu Nation (local Chapter 860/Underground Coalition) along with Trinity College, Nomadic Wax and World Hip Hop Market.
