Skateboard culture has been embraced by hip hop's younger generation to the point where the two are practically joined at the hip; but fans rarely see hip hop veterans acknowledge skateboarding. But its not just for hipster kids anymore. Ghostface Killah revealed in a recent interview that he is a fan of boarding and has been for a long time.
"Skateboarding and hip hop is one and the same," he explained. "Hip hop is a way of life. It's our way of life: how we walk, dress, talk, how we do things, b. Y'all say swagger - I don't like to say that word 'cus I've been using that shit a long time ago - but, you know, it's just what it is. When we was break dancing, that was hip hop. Skateboarding, that's still hip hop. I had a skateboard, too, when I was younger, you know what I mean…all that shit is all together. It's a culture, yo. Whether you skiing or whatever b, it's all together."
