First and foremost, we’d like to begin with wishing all the skateboarders around the world a Happy #GoSkateboardingDay2018. We hope everyone is joining in on the celebrations of this special day for the wood pushers out there.
This edition of #ThursdayTracklist is a one-of-a-kind feature of just a few tracks you would love to add to your playlist for today.
Skateboarding and Music go hand in hand. Be it for the soundtrack of a skate video, to the long sessions at the park, loud music is always essential to the skateboarding lifestyle. So we’ve rounded up just a few joints that you can add and enjoy your day with.
1. Kick Push – Lupe Fiasco Starting things of with this classic, every skater knows that this joint will get you motivated to get up and try again. Best for skaters on the rise, beginners and amateurs you know, we out here trying to stick those grinds man. I like the line where he mentions the importance of team playing and how it can influence your growth in the skateboarding life.
Now who can end a story right here?
2. Above The Clouds – Gangstarr (ft. Inspectah Deck) This has to arguably go down as one of the best joints from the Gang Starr camp. After the “Moment Of Truth” , the surface of hip hop changed forever. Premier in the rear with the beats and cuts Guru with the mic, ready to tear isht up it”s great to see how their music will live forever and forever be in the fabric of the hip Hop Movement.
Above the crowds, above the clouds where the sounds are original Infinite skills create miracles Warrior spiritual — above the clouds reigning/raining down, holdin it down
3. Buggin Out – A Tribe Called Quest Before we go on about this joint, Session Movie: Unlikely. I skated to this track for years on end, and it still feels like I haven’t had enough of it. You can check out the Session movie on YouTube, the link will be posted on our Facebook timeline, enjoy.
4. No Cars Go – Arcade Fire Lakai’s Fully Flared had a lot of hype to live up to after a nearly two-year delay of its release. The video exceeded expectations and after one of the most intense and expensive intros of all time, young Mike Mo Capaldi took the first spot of the video. Capaldi was only 16 for most of the filming and represented a new crop of young talent. Arcade Fire’s fresh sound and prominent percussion provides a perfect soundtrack for Capaldi’s technically bonkers part.
5. Skate On – The Game ft. Lupe Fiasco The Game went all out supporting skateboarders on this one, giving them the necessary fuel to ignite their urge to skate. This time, Lupe was on the hook which went something like “Skate on, Skate on, Skate on, my hommie skate on, me and my hommies trying to stay on” which is what we’re all about, encouraging the young ones to get into skateboarding and let it change their lives for the better.
That’s it for this feature of #ThursdayTracklist, we hope all the skateboarders will take these joints and kick start their #GoSkateboardingDay with a bang. If you want to send your feedback or suggestions, check out our social media platforms.
