Back when Hip-Hop was on the rise in New York, guys usually dominated the dance floor. Everything changed once the Dynamic Dolls exploded onto the scene, becoming the first professional female break dance crew ever! Led by Kim-A-Kazi, they took the Hip-Hop world by storm with their amazing skills and entertaining choreography. The Dynamic Dolls quickly gained some of the industry's foremost companies as their sponsors, such as Pony, Puma, and Swatch Watch just to name a few. Filled with exclusive photos, images and personal accounts, Kim-A-Kazi takes you along on her journey, sharing humorous stories as well as the difficult struggles that took her from the streets of Brooklyn to life in the Spotlight. Headlining on some incredible tours like the first Hip-Hop tour, starring Kurtis Blow, Run-DMC, the Fat Boys and many others. Compelling and raw, this book gives an awesome insight into the joy, success, heartache and betrayal of being A B-Girl in a B-Boy World.


Born and raised in Brooklyn, New York, Kim now resides in Las Vegas, Nevada, with her husband and her son. Dancing and writing are her two greatest passions. Currently, Kim is working on her next two books. "The Last Straw" is a riveting page-turner and "Beware the Devil’s Charm" is a dark, sinister story from the inner thoughts of a psychopathic murderer.

Kim writes in all genres and is eager to publish her children’s stories as well. She would like to use her gift of connecting with children to lecture at schools around the country.

“I want to share with children many of the things I wish someone would have passed on to me,” Kim says. “I want all children to know they can be whatever they want no matter where they came from. And in me, I think they can see for themselves that is possible.”

As for the adults, she says to never give up on your dreams. “It took me fifty years, but I am finally writing.”
