Have You Heard?
Could skateboard hip-hop become a new subgenre? I don't know if A&Rs will be rushing to sign the next skater-turned-rapper, but I do know that I'm really feeling Lupe Fiasco's "I Gotcha." Fellow skateboarder Pharrell appears on the track and co-produced the song with Chad Hugo, and I think it's fire. I was happy to see Lupe's first single, "Kick Push," chart, but I would love to see "I Gotcha" do even bigger things.
