Bobbito Garcia on CNN and Pro-Keds
The video above is of a Latinos in America piece CNN did on Hip-Hop renaissance man Bobbito Garcia. Funny, since I remember first noticing him as DJ Stretch Armstrong’s partner on 89.9 (shout to the homie Sucio Smash still holding it down over there), I’ve never really noted DJ Cucumber Slice as “a Puerto Rican dude.” Just as “a Hip-Hop head,” tried and true. Not on some post-racial nonsense. Searching for that new Hip-Hop music fix made it an after thought.
Regardless, Kool Bob Love has long been one of my inspirations. Bobbito the Barber seems to always finagle a check for doing stuff he’d probably be doing for free anyway. Case in point, he recently collaborated with Pro-Keds to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the Royal Flash model. Courtesy of KixandTheCity, video of Bob speaking on the kicks below. Damn him, and all his nicknames. LOL.
