You should pre-order your copy of the FTC book now.
Someone put together a remix part with a lot of Dennis Busenitz’s post-Since Day One footage. Did anyone else miss that China Banks manual sequence? Not sure how that one slipped under the radar. Wow.
Okay, so maybe a “Paine’s Park for L.E.S. or Astoria” trade is still a debatable topic, but how many New York parks would you trade for this new plaza in Vienna?
Ageless ledge mastermind, Enrique Lorenzo, is a part of a new Spanish skateboard company called Louw and has a quick section of high-brow ledge dancing at the 3:10 mark of their intro video.
Weiger’s part in the last Nike video is way better than you probably remember. Watch the musicless version or put some fashion forward Future shit on for it. “I’m moving on, I’m moving on, ain’t no more Louis Vuitton.”
The loop has left the vert skating world! Now that a street-variant of the loop exists, the countdown for the first person to do it begins. So, if Jake Johnson did it — it’d be surprising — but it wouldn’t be that surprising, right?
“Did Forrest Edwards teach Jamie Thomas to enjoy life again?”
Empty bottle of Jack under the bench BGPs n’ stuff.
One week after condemning post-2013 usage of songs from Enter the 36 Chambers for skate clips, we’re going to go ahead and link this ten-minute video DC put together about…36 Chambers and skateboarding. It’s basically the video version of this (“skaters like raw shit!”) and turns into a bit of a DC puff piece towards the end, but they do manage to interview Gino, Kareem, Jeff Pang, etc. Are skate media outlets already planning content around the twenty-year anniversary of Lifestyles of the Poor and Dangerous A.K.A. “The Most Edited-To Rap Album of All-Time” in two years?

There are a lot of the question marks in this post. We’re just curious.
the ftc pre-order already sold out
Damn, glad I did that yesterday — but how exactly does a “pre order” sell out?
Pretty sure no one associates Wu tang with DC. Gino and Keenan and all the mix tape volume I heads, but not DC.
I wanna light Aaron Brown on fire
Dominic you are a dunce. Pang and Harold both rode for DC back then. But why am I telling you this if you know it all? You ass-clown, go do your homework.
Here’s a recent clip of a New York homie skatin’ to a Wu track. Enjoy.
Let’s not get to judgmental with audio supervision. Besides, we’re on a site that ran with jazz tracks for quite some time and dating to be at least 30 years old. Let’s not fill too many buckets with tears of personal preference that do not have anything to do with our opinions.
P.S. – Aaron Brown loves the 4-9-3-11 on the Weekends (that was a wu-tang reference little Dominic wouldn’t know/get).
It’s not a preference thing. The first clip to ever be on this site was edited to Ghostface. It’s just annoying hearing the same five nineties rap albums referenced and edited-to over and over each year. A lot of rap music came out in the nineties and a lot of it wasn’t from Wu-Tang.
im just the im is cuz I been hangin with the demons.
I thought I had the angels all to myself but I was dreamin.
im just the way im is because I been hangin with the demons.
I thought I had the Angela all to myself but I was dreaming*
Actually I’m trying to say something you don’t seem to get: DC is trying to capitalize on the Wu. They didn’t rep Wu at all back then, nor did they have any affiliation with the World dudes that did. And Pang and Harold weren’t promoted by DC
Nigga said “short boarding” … #smh
fuck wu tang that shit was never cooooool
damn the juices shoulda been purple not blue =(
Jamie Thomas leap of faith. that’s was the most amazing thing when I started skating.
my niggas jersy dave
shout outs to jersy dave
Rappers ruined purple liquid for the foreseeable future.
Not enough people use artifacts in there edits. They have 2 albums. What about tha alkaholiks?
Leo Gutman just killed New York
tha alhaholiks were used in a bunch of early 411 vm’s
have plenty of twenty of somethin year old rap in them….
If you’re into rap that came out before you were born you should probably look into skateboarding from that era as well. Do we really need more shitty edits set to the same songs people have been editing skating to for over two decades already?
@thatwasfast nah they still up for pre order though. Thankfully
Wu-Tang is for the children!
p.s. – Purple Tape’s forever!
Anyone who preordered get the FTC book in the mail yet?
