Just take me to a spot that’s famous.
“In March, Kelvin and the other patinetos left San Salvador in the dead of night, and skated three hundred and fifty miles through Guatemala to the border town of Tecún Umán. That was the easy part.

This dude nose manualed up Black Hubba.
Transworld posted their “AM Spotlight” interview / photos with Antonio Durao. He also switch 360 flipped the double-set at the L.E.S. Park this past weekend. When does the Love Gap get drained again?
The marble mini hubbas in midtown are a wrap.

As DS2 blares through portable speakers for the remainder of the summer, let’s take a moment to revisit the classic intro off the ANCIENT original Dirty Sprite mixtape from 2011. Amazing how probably zero other “hot” rappers from back then are #relevant now. The game’s rough man.
Also, shout out to Future for using a Shutterstock image as his album cover.
