There’s something quite spellbinding about this performance by East Oakland dance crew, Turf Feinz. It’s an RIP to a man — the half-brother of popular local turf dance legend and Turf Feinz member, Dreal — who died in a car crash on that street corner days before; an impromptu tribute that cuts a fine line between breakdancing and a melancholy ballet sequence. The track is by Erk Tha Jerk.
