Music: Freestyle Friday – Kendrick Lamar

“See my vision or my vision’ll stare at ya” 🔥

Kickin’ off Freestyle Friday with one of the best in the game. Let’s hope the reason Kendrick has been quiet is because he’s in the studio putting in work!

Lyrics: As my mind drift Then split, like the middle of a spliff I began to catapult off the cliff Of the unknown, I got a feeling in my funny bone That we’re not the same, just antonyms of a different age My soul flock, with the carefree Words of the wise, I spoke a hundred times like a Goldie(Haha) L-M-F-A-O. I hate yall, but I spread love like mayo Then spread slugs My brain matter Is a brain fatter See my vision Or my vision’ll stare at ya This is the future if I say so Yall copping fitted caps I’m about to go and cop a halo The God of rap and I mean it I play kickball with Mars And marbles with Pluto and Venus Witness the genius I interact with the inner city villains That are into your circle Like a computer hack Then give you that.

Music Monday: 6lack – Nonchalant Video

One of the fastest rising artists over the past couple of years, “6lack” (Black) is finally back with another heater. “Nonchalant” is the perfect label for this smooth, raspy voiced, vibey, track/video that he flows over effortlessly with fire lyrics. It leaves you feeling calm, yet motivated. Perfect for a Monday 👊🏼

Lyrics we felt: ‘I’m so f**king tired, somehow I still find the time To care a little more about my rhymes

To care a little more about my peers To think a little less about my fears To care a little more about your ears’

‘I give a piece of me to everybody I meet Not because they want it, it’s because it’s prolly in need

Claim they woke but they prolly asleep, In a cage, thinking if they’d make a mil’ They’ll be free like Meek, nah’

Throwback Thursday: Unadilla Mx

UnaF*ckinDilla. One of the most beautiful, treacherous, and flat out picture perfect examples of what Professional Motocross is all about. So in honor of the 49th annual running of the Unadilla Pro Motocross National this weekend, I’ve decided to share some of my experiences from the historical race track.

My first time at Unadilla was while I was still competing back in 2009. Which was my second year racing outdoors professionally. I had 9-9 Moto finishes for 11th overall (that hurt) which was my best overall finish at a professional outdoor national. 📸: @guyb

My second trip to Unadilla came in 2011, again while being a competitor. I had a pretty big crash at the Dallas Supercross earlier in the year and was trying to make a strong comeback from a dislocated wrist, shattered knee cap, and broken collarbone. I raced the first Moto and after barely being able to hang on at the end of the race, I decided not to line up for Moto 2. It didn’t go as smooth as my 09 trip but at least there’s this cool shot from practice!

My next trip to the Thrilla came in 2014, this time working for @gopro mounting the cameras and pushing all their athletes buttons. I hung up my racing boots in 2013 due to another big get off in Supercross and was stoked to be back at the races after spending some time away from it.

 

I was back at it again in 2015 and 2016 doing more with/for @gopro and I also starting working with @LeattProtectives creating content and making sure their athletes were taken care of at the races.

That’s it! Looking forward to my next trip! Maybe next year?-JB425

Leatt Protectives: My Dirtbike Life with Ryan Sipes – 4-Stroke Edition

“It’s different, but this was more fun.”

Last time we checked in with Ryan Sipes he was racing a 125cc 2-stroke against the 4-strokes in the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross series.

We caught up with Ryan again at this year’s stop at #RedBudMX where he joined the rest of the racers and competed on a 4-stroke.

In this episode of “My Dirtbike Life” he gives us the rundown on the comparison between the two machines and what he thinks he can achieve on it moving forward.
