Following the skateboard rap trend set by artists like Lupe Fiasco and Pharrell, L.A. quartet Board Bangers are ready to bring their boards onto the scene. Their new single, Skate Like That, is basically a remake of the Digable Planets classic Rebirth of Slick (Cool Like Dat), only with a hyphy-sounding beat. Day Day, Dymond, and Sk8board D brag about their board tricks (like The Pack does their Vans or Cool Kids do their Black Mags), standing out and drawing the coolest kids, albeit with more kid-friendly verses. Such skill and appeal should make the Board Bangers a group that the entire families can enjoy listening to together, yet something tells me The World Ain’t Ready For This.
This is the first song featured on DJBooth from this artist. If you would like to hear more, be sure to rate and comment!
