The Rock Steady Crew was one of the most influencial breakdance crews out there at their time. The Rock Steady Crew was picked up by a record company and they made dope tracks and music videos. They spread breakdance around the world. If not for them the world of real hip-hop dance would still be limited to New York.

The original founders were Jimmy D and Jojo, two early popularizers of breakdancing. Although breakdancing has since become a well-known subculture, in the late 1970s it was little known outside of New York, as such their early rivals were from the other boroughs of New York. In the beginning, membership in the crew was only granted by battling with another Rock Steady member; it was a competition few people won.

Their release “Hey You, The Rock Steady Crew” went gold and was a top ten chart hit in Great Britain. The RSC saw little of the proceeds however, due to their lack of understanding of the music industry and their poor contract negotiations.
