Did you know that the skater commonly known as Spanky used to skate for Kareem Campbell’s company City Stars? It’s difficult to picture the Kevin Long we know today, suave fashionisto from Baker and Emerica fame, in a blinging star-shaped medallion, but if things had gone just a little differently we’d be here applauding his ghetto birds instead of his frontside flips. But so it goes…

Time may have matured Spanky into Kevin Long, but this mix that he made us, the 31st in our Jenkem Mix Series, shows Kevin ‘Spanky’ Long’s wide range of influences. From the avant-garde classical stylings of Moondog, to the Southern thuggery of Trick Daddy, to the noise pop of Jesus & Mary Chain, this mix has it all.

Listen to it below, or download it here.

    Why do US Skaters have such a great good musical taste? Is it because Jenkem picks up the most interesting ones? There’s a spanish webpage that do also this mixtapes with spanish skaters. They musical taste is boring: just plain hip hop songs. No surprises
