Thank you so much for joining us! Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path?
Krump Society was formed on January 1, 2017, in Lancaster, California, and was created to help develop a community for young individuals. With a group of leaders in place to guide and mentor these young artists, the society creates a space of stability, growth, and outreach. Krump Society is a place where bridging the generations of new and experienced krumpers helps create new ideas. And it all started based on an idea that we need some sort of support system. Norris Duckett III the Founder of Krump Society teamed up with Momma B.O.S.S., Soulja, Momma Smoove, Tha J-Squad, Black Cloudz 89 and a few more community leaders to create a tradition of young success.
Can you share the most interest in exciting happened to you since you started doing this?
The kids that have been working with Krump Society are very talented. Some of the kids are apart of a group called 6ix Vil. And 6ix Vil has been accepted and acknowledged in the Krump community and culture causing a shift and focus of the Krump movement to the kids in Krump. 6ix Vil with the help of other communities and leaders host a Krump event called Kids Summer Krump, meeting other communities such as car clubs, sports athletes, and other leaders in krump such as session hosts, battle stars,
Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them thrive and not “burn out”?
Keep pushing, and help build within your community. Also stay open to learn from success and failure to improve everyday. And most importantly learn to balance it all, from self care, social gatherings, and family time making it work together.
None of us can succeed without some help along the way. Is there a particular person who you are grateful towards who helped get you to where you are? Can you share a story?
Momma Smoove is a person that we want to take the time and highlight that she helped, believed, and guided over a huge amount of time. Showing how to handle business to building bonds and relationships. she constantly gives words of encouragement and builds up people around her.
We remember when the first Buck Spree (Krump event) was thrown but nobody knows Momma Smoove stepped in as we were short staffed and helped with promotions and even helped booking the venue. or how about When Krump Arena was going up; how at the time we were all kids and she booked the venues and the community wasn’t open to allowing the youth to use a facility and nobody at the time really knew what Krump is.
We want to thank you for all your efforts, Salute!!!
How have you used your success to bring goodness to the world?
Creating more successful young artists is how we have brought goodness into the world. Showing the good, bad, ugly and the changes to future generations. Asking how do they want to shape their future with the knowledge of the problems? This kind of training helps guide for solutions.
Do you have a favourite “written Quote”? Can you share a story of how that was relevant to you in your life?
“Make it make sense” is a life lesson of many, and sometimes it takes longer than you assume. Piecing everything together is beautiful and easy when its already done, but it can be very difficult to put some pieces together. For example the Krump community is built of many people that contribute and how do you bring it all together in efforts for a goal of unity? The answer is you don’t, everyone has pieces and everyone can work together for many goals; whether individual, groups, or/and whole Krump movement. And some things take time such as healing, maturing, etc. with these main points in mind the goal/s can become a we(unity) and it will make sense for any one to see and feel!

Anything specific you’d like to have mentioned in the article?
From our founder Norris: “The biggest challenge was, Me. It was me holding myself back. There are so many stories that have to be told. There are so many credits that have to be met. And I didn’t want to step on anyone’s toes with anything. And how do you do that without centralizing everything on yourself? And I found it. And I told myself to do what I’ve been doing this whole time. I’ve never made it about myself, and I’ve always worked to support and help everybody around me.”
