Benito "Mav-One" Vasquez

Native to Southwest Detroit, Benito "Mav-One"Vasquez came up at a time when hip-hop was a cultural norm. Breakdance crews practiced at parks and rec centers, were respected by community leaders and maintained a competitive, non-combative spirit in their competitions. Existing in the cultural in-between, hip-hop was taught person-to-person. For Benito, it was the one constant amidst many changes in his life. In 2004, many places closed off hip-hop programming. Benito continued practicing hip-hop with a small crew traveling to competitions. Benito opened MCSDA in 2015 to bring back what was almost lost.
