Battle Between the Sexes has come a long way baby!

In 1973 Billie Jean King defeated former player Bobby Riggs in a tennis match deemed the battle of the sexes featured on 60 minutes as a bit of a novelty. The hip-hop video of popping between the sexes (below) speaks of the long way we've come in this battle of the sexes. Before women in hip-hop had to be one of the boys. The young women in this video use their femininity and the masculinity of hip-hop dance to their kinetic narrative and the men can play the soft side of their performance, too. Hip-hop ya don't stop.
