Last year, b-boy Fienz, his Lordz of Finesse crew and Paul Skeee came together to throw the first Mighty 4 Colorado event at Beta nightclub, which drew more than 500 attendees. The event featured b-boy battles, performances from Infinite Mindz and BreakEFX, as well as fresh music coming from DJs Chonz, Phoreyez and Vajra. The great thing about the event, however, was not only did Colorado represent but hip-hop heads from New Mexico, Arizona and Wyoming also showed up and showed out. This year, the event is going down once again at Beta nightclub on Saturday, May 16, and the event is expected to attract double the attendance of last year. Those interested in sponsorship, should contact Delfino Rodriguez for more information. In the meantime, check out footage from last year's event after the jump.
