‘Connecticut is the birthplace of white people.’

A rare non-white person doing a boneless on Saturn.

The office spent the past several days in New England (driving through it…not skateboarding through it) instead of at Tompkins or on a park bench drinking champagne, so updates will resume on Monday. Now we know that if Future skated, his favorite skate spot would be in Boston.

Staying with the New England theme, here is the Boston/northeast montage from the 2004 Zoo York / Zered Bassett video, Vicious Cycle. If you’re feeling nostalgic about the St. Lunatics, it’s hard not to have similar feelings for Lil’ Flip’s year-and-a-half run that would arrive shortly after. As far as anyone at the QS Rap Desk knows, Vicious Cycle is the only skate video to ever include The Clover G on its soundtrack. Also, at the 0:52 mark, Ed Hall A.K.A. Eddie Rap Life wears perhaps one of the top ten garments to ever be worn in a skate video: a 4XL, maybe 5XL, banana-yellow quilted down jacket with Carolina blue accents. Vehicle Skateboards R.I.P.

“It’s clover G’s on top of my chain and when I die put a crown on top of my name.”

    By the way, the proper nickname for Connecticut is “New Yorkachusettes”
