Really hyped on the @stretcharmstrong @stretchandbobbito film. I remember having @rbumali record the show and give me copies because we didn't get the 89.9 station in Philly. Lol. Every time I used to go to NYC I would stop at the mixtape spot on Houston St and try and buy as many as I could. Lol. Seriously the best hip hop music was during those days. Watch the film on Vimeo(rent it for 4$) and see how Ill it really was.
Never really considered what impact skating could have while doing it. I always thought it was just the lifestyle I chose that happened to be frowned upon. Jail, family disownment, homelessness, you name it. Looking back, it has made me realize that race, religion, rich, poor, tall, short, fat, thin, ect.. Doesn't matter and that those things are actually created by ones self. Being a skateboarder gives us the ability to find friends/family in any environment. It truly is the definition of living free.(minus the occasional trespass or property damage case😜). Seeing the pic and reading the text from @20shotsequence with him and the young buck, and reading the comment from @luvpark03 reminds me how rad skateboarding really is... And the trade off of losing things considered to be normal, was absolutely worth it. All that.... From a board graphic.💯
