"shutting it down till 2014? C'mon NYC, I know you move at a much faster pace than that. Get it together! "
"I skated the banks. Its a bummer their even considering shutting it down at all. What a drag. I'll support you guys in NY anyway i can"
"Unable to find work, Percovich did what he has done since since he was 6. He rode his skateboard, undaunted by the military convoys, pushcarts, a suffocating film of dust and the occasional car bombings." Wow. Articles like this really put things in to perspective.

Awhile back, I told every one to check out the HOPPS online store.For those of you who don't know, HOPPS is owned by Jahmal Williams, who has been in the game for minute and has one the sickest styles out there. Don't believe me? Check out his part in the DNA video. Anyway, 48 Blocks has an interview up with Jahmal that everyone should check out, but before you cruise over there watch the HOPPS commercial below.
