Back in these streetz with Sal Orlando

Back in these Streetz 
with Sal Orlando

After, talking with the homie SAL  for a while, I realized that everybody has good and bad times but its those bad times in which individuals sometimes get on some other ish.

However, even though life can get difficult, we have to look at ourselves and decide what we as individuals want to manifest in our lifetime. I said all that to say, SAL ORLANDO is back leaving the past behind him.
Welcome Back Homie

Pedestrians Are Out Here Too

While shredding the city streets a couple of weeks ago, we happened to stumble across a guy chilling at the spot, drinking a 40. He was mad chill though.. he ended up having a camera on him and got some pretty decent photos for someone who doesn't skate. I say that because skateboarding is one of those things where you have to skate to know how to take a legit photo. But the dude was nice enough to email em to Soma so here they are. Anyway.. there was a lot more that went down at that spot.. Brandon was killing it! I want these photos in fisheye, so you will probably see the same tricks on here again at some point.

Chicago to the STL
LaMar jumped off the MegaBus carrying a brown bag which contained 4 bagels with strawberry cream cheese and a Vitamin Water. And, in the other hand, LaMar was carrying his  skateboard, so he decided to get some documenting in while you were sleeping.

Dave Young - The Local Anti-hero - Living The Good Life

"Living The Good LIfe", It is a phrase that contemporary society has misconstrued. When we hear it we automatically think of fame and fortune. However that isn't necessarily "THE" Good Life; or in other words the part of life that ends up meaning the most to us... 

In this short documentary Legendary BMX rider Dave Young speaks on his progression through life.

"If you try something that you know you've done 15-20 years ago, and then all of sudden you can still pull it, that feels amazing. How would that feel any different if I was 16 years old?"

Dave Mayhew, Rodney Torres, Constructive Rukus (Throwback Clip)

If you are an OG in this skate game, you might recognize this part. This is back from like late 90s early 2000s.. One of my favorite parts when I first started skating.. this shit would always get me hyped to learn something new. This video represents that steez from back in the day.. where you jus had fun kicked it with the homies and drank 40s and shit. Nowadays, niggas are too concerned with being the next P-rod.

Time Travelin' With BIG K.R.I.T.

Yo! This is DJ Kase One. I'm Baacckkk. Been a little minute since I dropped a gem on ya that you can rock to while you are rollin in these streets. There has been a lot of good albums and mixapes coming out in the last few weeks so I'm going to have step the pace of these articles to keep up.

First up is the new Album from BIG K.R.I.T. , "ReturnOf4Eva" . This album is packed with plenty of gems; but I gotta say that one of my favorites is "Time Machine". It's the perfect track for when you are out here rolling in these streets.
