The Lost Documentary on Hip Hop & Skateboarding - Concrete Jungle (2009)
Posted by Lee Goldup on June 12, 2015
An unseen 2009 documentary titled Concrete Jungle was recently discovered by JENKEN mag. The film which is by Eli Morgan Gesner, co-creator of Shut/Zoo York, shows the connection between skateboarding and hip-hop cultures.
Filming of the doc began in New York in 2007, but the production company folded the following year. Narrated by Rosario Dawson and featuring rap and skate legends such as Tony Hawk, Chad Muska, Paul Rodriguez, Stevie Williams, Curren$y, Jim Jones, Pharrell and more.
Although the film was cut short in 2008 the footage is still very interesting and relevant to the obvious tie between the two cultures.
