The most Photosynthesis-esque b/s nosegrind since Photosynthesis, give or take a few pant sizes.
Unlike, say 2012 for example, the skateboard internet has been having a slow start to the year. Maybe Dennis Rodman should consider inviting Forrest Edwards on his next excursion to North Korea so we have something to talk about? ANYWAY: whereas Tennyson’s Kenny Anderson edit gave us something that didn’t exist (a full Pretty Sweet part), the Manolo’s Tapes DGK edit improved on a past version of something which was pretty good to begin with…
Prior to Monday, you’d have a tough time convincing someone that Tyga had any reason to ever be used in a skate video. (The only exception would have been if someone skated to “Rack City” in 2011, but since when are skaters timely with current rap music supervision decisions?) Based on past output, the idea of a Manolo Parental Advisory remix sounded like it would be a boom bap-ified DGK variant. Instead, the dude used a lot of current rap, resulting in a better Keelan Dadd part, and a way better Wade “Last Remaining 2nd Generation Hip-Hop White Guy” Desarmo part to a Tyga song that somehow works with his technical, “having to pick your oversized pants up every couple of pushes” cruiser vibe.
You can pick and choose which versions of each you like better between the original and the remix. Kalis and Stevie’s sections are interchangeable. He did remedy the aspect ratio issues from the original DVD though, if that sort of thing matters to you.
Oh, and can we please stop giving Rodrigo TX the “he’s a Brazilian” card? If some dude in SoCal dropped that Parental Advisory part, people would be losing their minds. Hard to think of a skater who’s as unforgivably forgotten about in any “Best dude out” discussion of the past, what? Ten years?
Hella Clips disabled embedding and the video is too new to rip a standalone version of the Wade part, so you can watch it on Vimeo. Part in question is at 33:10 and Rodrigo’s is right after. Someone already ripped a standalone version:
