Manolo’s Tapes: Drake Jones

Sometimes, creating something people love is as simple as reinterpreting the classics. We love Manolo’s mixtapes. His latest: the legendary Drake Jones.

    Whatever happened to this dude? He just disappeared after 23 went under. One of the smoothest styles ever. I love that kickflip over the block at pier 7.

    Some are born to skate.
    The only way this clip could be better is if there was a short “Where Are They Now” feature to follow up with.

    hater with swag. why don’t you quit and take your negative shit with you. The dude was rad for the time and could probably still knock out some good shit today
