A few months ago I wrote about how The Cool Kids rapped about riding bikes and at Pharrell and Lupe were all about skateboarding.
Here’s a couple of tracks that will back me up on the second part of that theory.
Kick Push is a great track from Lupe in which he tells the story of just spending the day rolling around on a skateboard - “a rebel to the world with no place to go.” It is also worth noting the following quote from Lupe that I found in Wikipedia:
“…I’m not a skater and I don’t want to keep putting on the faces of people who’ve been skating for 20 years and actually lived out “Kick, Push”.
Whatevs. He’s still alright with me.
Pharrell constantly refers to himself as Skateboard P. I respect that.
He also named his brand of shoes Ice Creams. I just think that’s hilarious.
Since Pharrell and Lupe are doing well enough with out me, you should take the time to check out ESTAW’s MySpace. Turns out the kid is from Holland.
