Kick, Push

Kick, Push
Chicago’s Lupe Fiasco narrates the joys and sorrows of urban skateboarding in Grammy-nominated “Kick, Push”:

“So he kick push kick push kick push kick push coast
And away he rolled jus’ a rebel to the world with no place to go
So he kick push kick push kick push kick push coast
So come and skate with me just a rebel looking for a place to be
So lets kick and push and coast”

Video directed by Christopher Adams/Hannah McDowell
