I dunno really know how it happened..I'm no OG for sure. It started with a few pair of kicks and then I started checking out the clothes and I always loved having stuff that not many people had.

i needed my ghetto pass, therefore I needed to dress "street"

do you have any idea about street wear, and that it's not just blacks, and wannabe blacks

It was a mixture of things. I'm a skateboarder, have been for the last 7 years, and really, I would say I found it through skateboarding. I give a lot of credit to L-R-G and Nike SB,whom I found through skateboarding. Because at the time, around 04-05, the creativity from both parties was bonkers. Forget the hype, just that aspect drew me in. I know it may seem cliche, those two brands really showed me the different avenues of streetwear culture. From then on, I just researched.

I just started find out about things one by one, and it eventually it just snowballed into this thing called "STREETWEAR".

Ive been a part of the scene for a while without even knowing. But I know i fell in love with it when I moved to Miami and used to go to the Shoe Gallery in Miami. They just had all sorts of goodies from LRG, Triko, 10 Deep, PF Flyers, Tier Os, shit was insane. I couldnt grasp everything each trip so I had to go everyday until I could contribute to the scene.

I remember the 1st 10 deep tees were just hittin......I never copped just appreciated the work. I was all over Triko. They were doing some amazing shit for that time.

I've been skateboarding for 11 years.
I remember getting some goofy-ass Stussy hat because my friend said it was cool.
Wish I still had that fucking hat.
But yeah, skateboarding.
