In the past year or so, Naquan Rollings has been the de facto skate tour guide of New York City.
Through his lens, you get to see more than just skating lesser-known NYC spots – His videos are a way for people to find out which out-of-state skaters are visiting, and what it actually feels like when skating the streets here.
As you might have guessed if you’ve seen his work, his mix is heavily geared toward trap (so fair warning for the old heads about to listen to this). Naquan is 23, what did you expect?
Make sure to download it here while you can, too.
