Thank you everyone for your support in helping us continue to do what we do ♥
The new Helas mixtape makes me want to sell everything I own and move to Europe. Also kinda reminds me of the #fun days of catching Euro vids like TDGAFAU and issues of Puzzle stateside and fantasizing about a perfect world of marble living an ocean away. Not a ton of Lucas footage, minus a few lines and um…THIS.
New iPhone clip from Genny featuring “Don’t Mind” and a repaved Allen Street.
“Low-key we’re already rappers.” An interview with Na-kel Smith and Tyshawn Jones.
Bobshirt has a new 20-minute video interview with Gino, where he nerds out on gear, old videos, midtown Manhattan spots (Breezy Ledges was his favorite?!), etc.

Shout out to everyone who contributed to the Addias Ababa skatepark fund that was linked on here a few months ago. They were able to build the first skatepark in Ethiopia with the $35k that was raised.
