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."
Havoc and Prodigy also released a statement regarding their partnership with Selfish for the line of boards.
“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
The boards should be in stores by March 2011, just in time for P's release from prison.
Also be on the lookout for new music from Hav and P soon. Havoc is already itching to get started on Mobb Deep's next album. He says it will be a classic.
