Garrett Leight did a feature with my ace Jimmy G aka Jimmy Sweatpants. Jimmy hit me and asked if I would put the soundtrack together. He wanted a mix of his favorite Philly artists. DONE. DEAL.

In the late 1990′s and early 2000′s, skateboarding was not yet on the mainstream radar — especially on the East Coast, which was still the hinterland for the West Coast-based skate industry. It wasn’t for lack of talent, but even the best from back east struggled to get coverage in major magazines like Thrasher, making it even harder to find sponsors and earn a living doing what they loved. In spite of drawing the short straw by being outside the hubs of San Francisco, San Diego, and Los Angeles, the brightest talents still shone through, coming up the hard way.
