Illegal Civ videos often have some of the best soundtracks! Many tracks have made it into our personal playlists. For Godspeed Davonte Jolly edited Ishod Wair’s footage to “CHAMP IS HERE”. A move so obvious that you start to wonder why nobody thought of it before.
Also, is the whole concept behind HARDIES, just to make us miss the golden era of NY hip hop? MA$E, DMX, JADA man that shit makes you want to wear some baggie pants and some Timbs.
It seems that today is all about the future of skateboarding, with videos by both Antosh Cimoszko and now Mikey Alfred. The two of them clearly take heavy influence from music, musicians and youth culture in general.
It is great to see how different and original both their videos and concepts end up being.
We have been waiting! Not for the Hardies promo but for somebody to use that Jay Z song and to be honest, it couldn’t be used in a better context. Besides that, legendary DJ Troi “Star” Torain once said that hip hop is “A business where extremely confident black men are able to flourish and prosper.” and for us that is what Hardies brings to the table with the like of Tyshawn Jones, Nakel Smith, Kevin Bradley, Sage Elsesser and many more. Enjoy!
