Two NYC originals: Rakim and Zoo York are collaborating on limited edition skateboard decks to be released November 17th.
New York City’s premiere skateboard brand has come together with one of New York City’s original MC’s for a very special deck collaboration. In their December holiday product release, Zoo York will drop limited edition Rakim decks to honor one of the godfathers of hip hop. The limited edition decks will come packaged with Rakim’s brand new album “The Seventh Seal” which drops in stores and online November 17th. The deck will be available through the Zoo York and Rakim websites.
In anticipation for his upcoming album, The Seventh Seal, Hip-Hop MC Rakim has teamed up with Zoo York to create a limited edition skateboard deck.
Zoo York in association with RA Records, SMC Records, TVE and Cornerstone Promotions announce an exclusive collaboration with Zoo York (a skateboarding-inspired lifestyle brand) to create a limited edition skateboard deck.
The skateboard deck will feature graphics designed by Rakim himself, Zoo York and NYC artist Dean Nicastro.
The limited edition piece will come packaged with Rakim’s new CD The Seventh Seal and will be made available for collectors and fans in December 2009 at select retailers.
Interestingly enough, radio has not been too kind to Rakim’s released single’s most notably his lead single “Holy Are You” – which in personal opinion is a phenomenal single that combines impeccable lyricism and an ongoing theme.
Rakim’s The Seventh Seal is scheduled for release on November 17.
