Lil G (Venezuela)

Venezuela’s Lil G is one of roughly 100 b-boys set to compete at the 2019 WDSF World Breaking Championship on 23 June in Nanjing, China. 

A versatile and highly experienced Breaker, Lil G has been doing his thing since the age of 11 and has garnered a strong following worldwide for never resting on his laurels. 

Lil G has competed in numerous Red Bull BC One World Finals, the Silverback Open, and Outbreak Europe, among many others. While he has visited China a number of times, his appearance at the World Championship will be his first time in Nanjing.

We look forward to seeing Lil G bring his unique style and originality to the floor!

Q: What are you most looking forward to about the World Championship?
A: I’m looking to do my best in this battle but the most important thing for me is to enjoy the moment.

Q: Do you have any new techniques ready for Nanjing?
A: I have some new moves but I’m still not 100% sure I will try them at the World Championship. 

Q: Is there anybody competing in Nanjing that you would really like to battle and, if so, why?
A: I really want to battle the people who are on fire, because then I can push myself more.

Q: What is your greatest strength/best move as a b-boy?
A: I don’t have any exact move, I have strong musicality on my power moves.

Q: What advice do you have for young breakers just starting out?
A: My advice for the new generation – or for everyone – is to do everything from the heart. If you want to be in the game of big battles, prepare your heart for when the losses come and take it as a gain, because it will be a growing experience and not a defeat.

Q: Who inspired you as a young b-boy?
A: The people who inspired me when I was young were my crew members Shadow and Knnon from Venezuela. Then it was Storm from Germany, Salah from France, The End from Korea, Boy from USA and now I am inspired by all the new generation coming up.

Q: What one word best describes your style?
A: Risk, of course.

Q: What is your favourite place to compete?
A: Asia.

Q: Who’s been your toughest competitor and why?
A: The toughest competitor has been myself, because every loss is difficult and to continue to keep it up until now has been hard. But I learn [something in every situation which is a victory in itself] and I always feel good no matter the result.
