  1. 2 events took place in Boogaloo ing that I’ll never forget. The first took place in W. Oakland 76/77. Popular park.. at the rec center social hr. Derrick and Lovett called out John Murphy who at the time was one of the best, if not the best… Those who were there from the east say John won, those from the west say Derrick won… Although I believe Derrick won, the biggest thing that came from the battle is that it put W. Oakland on the Map. And served notice that we could compete with and beat the best… ….. The other event was when John Murphy, , Derrick Lovett, and a name not to many people know or remember, Noah Johnson. They all came together to form a super group. The first glimpse of this group was at Lowell jr high in the gym.. I want to say that was in 76/77 as well.. they performed a couple of times together, the group was short lived.

  2. Mr. Atomic, i don’t remember the name of the group because it was so long ago…and it lasted for a very short time…
    John Murphy probably remembers!
