Thanksgiving weekend is the new Christmas on the skateboard internet. Rather arguing with drunk relatives, getting roped into buying unnecessary shit, and sneaking out to hit da club at midnight, we get an onslaught of skate videos (see here, here and here.) To cap the week off is a new part from Black Dave, who shares a first name with today’s tradition of violence in big box stores.
For years, we have been lead to believe that rapping to any degree of success and skateboarding to any degree of success are mutually exclusive endeavors. B.D. might’ve gone through a variety of incarnations in his time — from Flobe Dave, to the “wow, he’s getting really good”-Dave in Trife, to Black Donald Trump (can’t forget the short-lived “Black Jeremy Lin“) — but he’s consistently progressed on his board no matter what extracurricular interests followed suit.
The new part is chill, in a good, old-fashioned way of how video parts are chill i.e. not in a mixed media sort of way ;) Always nice to see the curb at Lenox get put to use.
Have a good weekend.
