As far as remix videos on the internet go, Village Psychic’s “1-800-Jordan-Trahan” holds a special place in my heart. Like him or not, Drake songs have a way of push-pinning certain moments — particularly summer moments — into your memory, e.g. you remember when you first heard the song that goes on to incessantly play for the next five months. “1-800-Jordan-Trahan” dropped at a stagnant point at the end of last summer, a week or two into “Hotline Bling’s” five-month reign of “can I go anywhere without hearing this shit?” / when it was still cute. [Full disclosure: I was in Toronto the first weekend it came out, yes I went to the OVO store.] It also created a would-be placeholder for a dude who hadn’t had “The Part” yet, but still sat on everyone’s favorite skaters list regardless. He’s the 2015 #QSSOTY after all ;)
Even if we didn’t reserve any and all Drake #musicsupervision decisions for end of the year edits, going full Views and biting Village Psychic for this remix of Jordan’s 5BNY part wasn’t the thing to do. Figured the best way to sorta maintain that vibe was to use a sample source from a current “can I go anywhere without hearing this shit?” summer 2016 titleholder. Enjoy.

For whatever reason, the first thing that went through my mind as the screen went blank is how great he’d look with cornrows.

What on earth are those heinous high top shoes he always wears? Don’t look like new balances? Maybe some DC Manteca high top samples from hell? Satan himself could not design a more diabolically painful to watch shoe. Yet, I can’t look away because of the beautiful skating. If he had on half cabs the internet might explode because how awesome the part would be.
