Skateboarding is not an founding element of hip-hop nor is hip-hop a founding element of skateboarding. Both of these share many important aspects though. Both are forms of expression, hip-hop elements are basically dance, art, lyricism, and music. People do these things as a way to express themselves, this is the same thing people are doing on skateboards. Each element of hip-hop deals with style and skill. For example, a breaker might do some basic moves that do not require much skill, but they do them really well, cleanly, and it looks really good cuz they got mad style. Same shit with skateboards, people might not have the most skill, but they are out there trying, expressing themselves through the board, coming through with some style, that shit is tight. Same with MCing, somebody might not have the most enlighting language or pure ability, like Slum Village, but they are real nice cuz they got style. They rock the beat and it sounds really good. Sometimes I think people get too wrapped up in skill and forget about style, which in my opinion is just as important. Is this making any sense? I kind of digressed a little, but i am just to trying to show that skateboarding and hip-hop ARE related. I do not know anybody that really thinks that skateboarding is a founding element. But I FEEL hip-hop the same way I FEEL skateboarding. Im sure many heads diss skateboarding as some bullshit, but if you do you are not really understanding it. Just like heads that diss hip-hop are not understanding it.

So anybody feeling me or not? what do yall think?

beyond the art/style arguements..

i think that you also must know that skateboarding/snowboarding/BMX has always supported "good" commercial and underground hip-hop from it's creation...competitions have pumped hip-hop for years....video's (there are TONS) have had many hip-hop songs behind riders..

in addition..hip-hop fashion has taken some things from skateboarding/snowboarding...think snow goggles!!

on the white boy issue..ummm...skateboarding being popular with hip-hop is not a race/color issue...there are kids of all colors riding...it's been like that for years..

hope that might have shed some light..

Much love,
Kyle

i used to skateboard. and those videos and people is what introdued me to the roots, digable planets, souls of mischief, etc. i think there is two sides to skateboarding, one side can be found in the urban areas. at least half the guys i skated with were black, and they always thought skateboarding was part of hip hop culture. skateboarding was combined with other hip hop elements like graffiti. the sport is really not that active, its mostly just hanging out in the city, something to do while doing other shit.

skateboarding, pure skateboarding is some ACTIVE ASS SHIT, it can be laid back, it is mad fun, but going out and busting your ass, running from the cops, and trying the tricks over and over again until you stick it, is exhausting. Urban are by far the best places for it.

just thought id point that out.

ohh and a another related thing is that hip-hop and skateboarding both started around the same time.

there is a concert that's going to be held in irvine...called skateboard jam or something, meth and red are the headliners...this white cat asked me if i was going, and i was like heck no...and he was like, but meth and red are going to be there, and he knows i like meth and red...but i told him, for the same reason i didn't go to audiotistic that i wasn't going to this skateboard jam, it's not going to be my type of crowd...first of all, i'm not into skateboarding, and it's going to be a grip of whites and asians there...and blast me if u want to, but i'm around that crowd 18 hours a day 7 days a week, i can't help if during my free time i want to be around black folks...i just feel more relaxed, understood...and i don't have to explain or defend.

i don't know where i was going with this...it must be monday.

nah i feel you..that crowd along with the ROOTS crowd and most of these other acts are majority the kind of people you speak of.. when i go to the roots shows.. i just tend to block all that other shit out and try to just enjoy the music..but understand it is kinda hard when you got money next to you all off beat and fucking up your jawn..

my point was the skateboarding thing is just another thing to add into the mix of this hip hop thing.. another thing that these coffee shop chicks and white dudes...(excuse the expression..but i got it from your one of your very own OkAYPLayERs so you figure it out..) people have added to the mix and somehow find some abstract reasoning at to why it belongs in hip hop.. i mean, but that's life.. i guess things change and this change was bound to happen..i don't know about the bmw and benz comment..(that was some next shit) but uhhh.. yeah
i guess the change was bound to come..ROYAL. i hear what your sayin..i guess..

Okay..that is soooo off the topic..we have discussed this on okayplayer before to it's fullest extent..check the archives....maybe it's where you live..but that is the lamest excuse to why NOT to enjoy the music..

I can figure it out..you don't really understand the sport of skateboarding...black folks have been rockin' boards for years..i've already stated that..whether white boyz created it or not..

you don't see me yellin' "foul" because black folks play baseball/football/basketball...

people have added
>to the mix and somehow
>find some abstract reasoning at

>hip hop..

abstract reason? money..most of the hip-hop artist that you listen to (including the very one we speak of..)..have embrased skateboarding into the culture..what's your problem with it?..the color thing again? please..

i mean, but

you know i don't know if i was readin aminah's post wrong or what...but what's wrong with skateboarders?? yeah, its not one of the elements i'm well aware of that....but i think skateboarders are cool. sure seein them fall on their ass skating on stairwells and banisters may not look smart to one person, but to another person it looks somewhat interesting. and whats so wrong w/white ppl at roots shows? in my eyes thats just diversity at its best. i'd like to see a lot more races interested in what groups like the roots and blackstar have to say....sure they might be all off beat or whatever(some may even be high and shit but i'm not gonna get into that one...we'll save that for another time )but theyre there for the same reason you and i are there for...the show. maybe common wanted to try somethin different in his video...and different it was. i mean it didnt live up to what little video i had made up in my head, i'm sure it didn't live up to yours either but like i said maybe he was approachin a different area...i say let him do his thing...i just wish he'd read my post on the "funky for you" video...then all us OKP post-vets, pre-vets and newbies will have fun.
1nce again I hope I didn't read the post wrong and write all this just to irritate the hell outta my carpal tunnel....

16. "Straight up...."
In response to Reply # 14


          

you sound like you're full of shit. It's clear by your comments up to this point that you have some serious misconceptions/predjudices about caucasian peoples AND skateboarders.

I don't skate but I know not all skaters are caucasian. I know quite a few asian and black cats that skate.

I don't know that many people that would say skating is another element of hip hop but their is a pretty clear assosciation. About 98% of the skaters I've ever met listen and enjoy "real" hip hop. In addition, most skaters I know are also graff artists which means that most are active participants within the culture.

You act as though it's wrong for whites to like/appreciate/participate in hip hop at all. Straight up...that's bullshit. There's nothing wrong with any of that as long as people respect hip hops origins and realize that it was an art form that was founded by minorities in inner city neighborhoods as way to express not only their frustrations and joys within that environment.

I understand that there is caution when ever caucasian peoples participate in something that was started by minorities because of caucasian's track record in that area. But there is a clear double standard there as well. If there was a black cellist, participating in european culture, no one would accuse that cellist of attempting to be a culture theif.

Regardless of all this, it's pretty sad to me that you limit yourself through your views of the world. You might just be missing out on meeting some good people. Also, it's predjudices that hold us back because we can't see past our views to see the real person and therefore create understanding between people of different races/classes/religions/etc.

Peace.

skating is totally different than how you perceive it. as a bunch of people have already said plenty of non-white kids skate. skating is probably one of the most racially open communities around. its actually made it possible for some black pros to become pretty well off. next time you wanna buy some sneakers and support black folks go to your local skate shop and grab some axions this is company that is owned by a black pro kareem cambell and the shoes are pretty fresh too. also skating has made some carreers in hip hop. its highly doubtful that the whole hieroglyphics crew would even be around if it wasnt for their exposure in skate mags and videos. so just know what your talking about next time you start making fun of an entire sport.

Ya maaaaad close minded, aminah. Perpetuation of negativity is a symptom of unintelligence. It's all love, skateboarding IS closely connected with hip-hop in urban areas. It don't really matter whether you think so or not, the plain fact is that when somebody rocks a 'Zoo York' hoodie or T-shirt from NY, they're representing skateboarding. The roots of a sub-culture may be found in different places than related cultures, but a truth about human patterns is that they tend to change and become interconnected with other patterns they exist in close proximity with. Called 'Evolution'. Fuck talking about hip-hop as an adjective or, "what the fifth element should be." Urban culture, ya heard? My bad if this went over your naps.

20. "Harold Hunter- skater in comm's "1999" video."
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

Harold hunter is a black pro skater who was in common's 1999 video (walking with talib kweli in the beginning)- so this isn't the first time Comm's had a skater in his video.

didnt lil stevie from philadelphia make a hip hop record or was on one. it might be on the album that that skateboarding magazine put out. there were a few pros on it.

Chuck Treece from Phiily used to skate. He has played guitar for years, even worked with the Goats. I'm sure the Roots know of him.

26. "an answer (sort of) plus other people"
In response to Reply # 22


          

i've been lurking for a good minute but i've finally got my shit together and started posting.
on that lil steive question, the comp you're thinking of is the strength mag comp. i've never heard it but i'm pretty sure that the skaters just did intros and the like, didn't actually have tracks. i know stevie is tight with a hip-hop crew called lost souls of babylon though. another interesting note, scratch was in stevie's video part in underworld elements "fine artists vol. 1". he's doing what only he can do in love park with stevie standing right there giving him daps.
i've never heard anyone claim that skating is another element of hip-hop and if they did i wouldn't agree. but the two are very closely related. for those that doubt, check the zoo york's "mixtape" video, rb umali's "peep this" and "heads" or the true mathematics video. peace

30. "irony"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

what's ironic is: didn't common say something about backsmacking someone with a skateboard on LWFC? it felt like he was sort of dissing skaters with that line. did anyone else feel the same way?

In response to Reply # 25


          

....so this may have been said already....but I think skateboarding is pretty gay. I see these kids skateboarding all damn day and night by Astor Place all the time, gettin in the way of traffic, trying to make a big scene....Wooptie damn doo. Its like this big thing all the sudden to be part of a "Gay skateboard clique." Corny!!!
Even though i dont like Skateboarding, I love the people who do it. At least twice a week I have the wonderful opportunity to witness some orange-headed, too-big jean having, converse all- star wearing fag-freak bust his ass on the concrete because he messes up a move or something. I love it, and make sure I laugh MIGHTY loud just to make them aware of my approval.
Peace,
