    Breez, that dance is over 15 years old, from Harlem fam, puffy cheated them outta there money. So I would figure D.C. should have know about it the also, but you might be kinda young so you may not have been in the streets at that time. Everything repeats itself, because someone older than me could probably tell me it came from somewhere else, its the great circle we call "life"
