6. On that note, apart from your music you are also known for your presence in the skateboarding community; so tell us, which came first, the skateboard? or the Mic? And how have both cultures impacted each other, creatively and otherwise?

The skateboarding came first and it put my in the postiton and places to meet certain people in that culture that liked the skateboard culture.. skating is driven by music , Both work together so the cultures a very close from fashion and so forth .. made me who i am
