Move over Pharell Williams there's a new Skateboard P in town, as in Prodigy of Mobb Deep.
The rap game's "most infamous" has teamed with Selfish Skateboards to create the world's first board designed by a rapper.
The "Blood Sport" deck was hand drawn by P himself and it's the real deal, made out of the best Canadian maple wood money can buy.
Professional skateboarder Jereme "Sherm" Rogers of Selfish spoke with Transworld and told them he couldn't be happier with the collaboration.
"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."
“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
