About this project

Who are The Illaskan Assassins?

We the Illaskan Assassins, are a b-boy crew whose members have been dancing together since 2003. In an effort to spread our love for hip-hop culture, we have given back to the community by hosting workshops and b-boy competitions all over Alaska, including native villages in Rural Alaska. In addition, we collaborate with non-profit organizations in performances, workshops, and community outreach programs. Members of the Illaskan Assassins have taught the arts of hip-hop culture around the world, in places such as: China, Nepal, Mexico, Peru, London, and all over the United States. We will continue to support and share the art of hip-hop locally and globally today.

What is Supply the Skillz?

Supply the Skillz is a hip-hop event that was first held back in 2003. The event included a 3v3 b-boy competition, emcee battle, and a DJ showcase. This event produced such a big spark in the hip-hop community in Alaska, which led to Supply the Skillz 2, as well as many other b-boy competitions to follow. Supply the Skillz was a stepping-stone to more outlets for hip-hop culture to grow in the community. This is the 10th Year Anniversary of that historic event.
