    “On the Spot: Miriam Amankwe, Black n’ Blue Hip Hop Crew”

    How does hip hop make you feel?

    It makes me want to dance and go out. It also relaxes me when I’m stressed.

    What is the first song you truly busted a move to?

    Honestly, it was probably “”Yeah!”” by Usher. Within the first two seconds of that song I think every person at the party, at the club, in the shower just goes out of control.

    Vanilla Ice or Run-DMC?

    Ice, ice baby you can’t touch this. The go-to old school hip hop people, they are like my parents’ Usher and R. Kelly.

    If you were trapped in a closet with R. Kelly, what would happen?

    Seven minutes in heaven, duh. (laughs) No way. He kind of creeps me out, especially after the 12-minute video of the closet, the kitchen, wherever he’s talking about.

    Have you ever tried country swing dance?

    Does it look like I would want to do that?

    I hear it’s like the new thing for music videos …

    That is the last thing I want to see in videos. Somebody needs to live up to Michael Jackson. I am waiting for the next video to top “”Smooth Criminal.”” Watch out for Black ‘n Blue.
