Edson "House" Magana is one of the more accomplished b-boy artists in the Valley, if not the entire state of Arizona. He's not only one of the founding members of the Furious Styles Crew, but has also beaten hundreds of other dancers in battles around the nation, and can bust out sick-looking steps from his arsenal of moves.

All of these feats, however, aren't as renowned as the 40-year-old's membership in the Mighty Zulu Kings, the legendary b-boy and urban art crew that was founded by hip-hop icon Afrika Bambaataa back in the early '70s.
