Back again with another influential video, and this time it’s something for the guys. Lupe Fiasco first hit the scene in 2006, with the Grammy nominated single, Kick, Push. Along with a hot track, he brought along the idea that black folk can skateboard too. No he wasn’t the first to be doing it, but he was in the best position to get dudes still wearing tall tees and hanging at the trap, to go ahead and wash those tees in hot water and go hang at a skate park. I personally thank him for that. Though in true stubborn, black boy fashion it did take a while to catch on, but as other contributers such as Pharrell and Kanye took a part in the movement it has slowly become a trend.
Unfortunately, the original video with the original track couldn’t be found so the above video is a remixed version but you still get the same feel. Here are some designs from the brand, Stussy, which is now one of the most sought after clothing lines by black skateboard fanatics. Check them out and tell me what you like.
