By 2011, I figured my battling days were over. Though I had always kept an eye out for things that were happening in the battle world, I had thought that things moved so far away from what I had loved about the battle scene, that it wasn’t really something I was going to dive back into. I had watched videos, and kept an eye on it for a while, but hadn’t really been inspired enough to jump back in.
A few months prior to this video, I had gotten a call from my good friend DJ Platurn (Oakland Faders), who had been invited to compete in the SF RB3Style, asking me if it were something I would be interested in. I hesitated, and I basically told him I’d think about it and get back to him. I thought about it for a while, and decided to test myself. I basically told myself, that if hadn’t really been inspired by what was happening in the battle scene, then it was up to me to try and DO some inspiring. So I came into it with that mentality. It was my goal to create a clear window to what my style was, and really use it as a platform to do what I felt was “The Goldenchyld Show”. I didn’t let the fact that it was a battle, really shape the set. I just looked at it as if I were about to rock a festival my way, and did that. And this is what it turned into!
