Vert skating is still some of the heaviest shit you can do on four wheels. Upstarts Jimmy Wilkins, Tom Schaar and Sam Beckett trade walls with legends Rune Glifberg, PLG and Jake Brown. And then there's the dudes who've never worn pads in their lives - Chris Russell gets stuffed then shuts it down!
Skateboarding's OG rapper, Chris Gentry, knows that Ridaz Gotta Ride in his latest music video. With guest appearances by Navarette, Duncan, PLG, Perelson, Danny Way and a who's who of the modern vert scene.
How could anyone forget Chris Gentry's epic King of the Road rap? Well, Rap-A-Lot's favorite white boy is back with his 2nd Thrasher exclusive recording: Hall of Meat. If you're squeamish, don't watch this edit. Everyone else, enjoy the trainwreck.
Texas legend Chris Gentry went way out of his way for the Etnies team on King of the Road this year - inviting them to Houston's famous Rap-A-Lot studio to throw guest vocals on his next club banger "King of the Road."
