Jereme Rogers’ Selfish Skateboards hat einen großen Wurf gelandet! Die Firma wird mit der legendären Rap Gruppe Mobb Deep, die für jeden Hip Hop Fan zum Pflichtprogramm gehören, zusammenarbeiten.
Mit Prodigy und Havoc will Selfish Boards und T-Shirts mit den beiden East Coast Legenden herausbringen. Die Designs kommen direkt von Prodigy, der noch immer im Knast sitzt. 2011 werden die ersten Produkte aus der “Blood Sport”-Serie erscheinen. In der Pressemitteilung ist das erste Boarddesign zu “bewundern”.

Wir zitieren aus der Pressemitteilung:
“Selfish Skateboards is proud to announce our very first collaboration line for spring 2011 “Blood Sport” designed by Prodigy of The Infamous “Mobb Deep”. “Blood Sport” brings us a unique collaboration and concept never attempted before. A board series not only endorsed but also hand drawn by Prodigy himself. This board will be available in stores in Spring 2011.”
“Since 1993, “The Infamous Mobb Deep” has supplied the world with our unique style of reality based hardcore Queens, New York hip hop music. We understand the importance of sticking to our formula and being the representatives for poverty, struggle & the inner city lifestyle. Havoc and I are proud to announce that we have teamed up with Selfish Skateboards to design a line of boards with the same unique hardcore style as our music. We look forward to the release of these designs & would like to thank the skaters all around the world for supporting Mobb Deep throughout the years.
– Prodigy and Havoc of Mobb Deep
It is very much an honor to do this board. Mobb Deep is a legendary group and my passion for music goes deeper than I can explain. This is one of many collaborations we aspire to do and I’m glad this first one is with such a classic group. It’s also unique and exciting that he didn’t just lend us his name and actually sat down and hand drew a graphic for us. I’d like to thank Prodigy and Havoc and everyone else working with us to make Selfish work.
