HYPEBEAST has teamed up with The Compound, a creative studio located in the birthplace of hip-hop, New York City, on Compound Conversations – a series of interviews in a surreal space curated by SetFree. Our last installment in this series features Nigel Sylvester, the pro BMX extraordinaire who has made a name for himself popularizing the urban sport. Here, the New York City native shows his passion for BMX, likening his bike to a channel through which to communicate the freedom he feels while riding. Constantly challenging himself while pushing the sport forward, Sylvester recounts the proudest moment of his rise to fame thus far, and what turning your passion into a living really means.
