When Bobby’s QS part dropped back in 2014, there was a background current about how “Bobby and Migos doesn’t make sense” (no doubt from guys who pester teenagers’ montage music selections on YouTube.) Somehow, he exists in people’s minds as this Kool Keith evangelist, due to his obvs great Right Foot Forward song.
The joke is on them though — because when I originally asked him about what song he wanted to skate to for it, he told me Wiz Khalifa’s then-buzzing, “We Dem Boyz.”
No, this remix isn’t to retreat back on him skating to 2014’s Song of the Summer contender. We even resisted the more literal route of editing it to something from 2017’s most underrated album, which just so happens to be from the DMV area (kinda ABD, tho we used the most obvious song off it.) Nah, this one is for another lesser known side of Bob. We dedicate this QS remix to Bobby Worrest: Ladies Man ♥
We’re two months out from awards season, and skateboarding’s drift from YouTube montages to minute-long Instagram clips renders each year’s I.G.S.O.T.Y. race more contentious than the last. Spencer Hamilton, who has spent the better part of the year rehabbing from a back injury, doing waist-high kickflip back tails, and promoting better posture to us all (actually typing this post more upright than usual out of respect), is an early frontrunner for top honors.

After Gino, there’s a contested debate about who has been as unflinching in their career-long dedication to never putting out a single piece of #badfootage. Our vote goes to French style-god, J.B. Gillet. Since overlooking the weird French rap in Rodney V.S. Daewon II to observe the brilliance of his futuristic trick selection, to the dude easily earning a top three distinction of favored parts among the QS office in the mid 00s, and all the way down to a late period that trumps any of his SoCal contemporaries (we already tackled Europeans’ ability to crap on all similarly-aged Americans re: the “people just want to see you skate”-maxim three years ago), J.B. has held a special place in our hearts.
Here’s a quick remix of his best footage from Bon Voyage and onward — based on a concept expanded from a two-month old Vine. Thanks for everything man.
If J.B’s Freedom Fries part doesn’t convince you to maybe not film your boy doing a crooked grind nollie flip at L.E.S, probably nothing will :(
