Some might call Bronx native, Zoo York team rider, and the self-proclaimed “Black Bart Simpson,” Dave Willis, a renaissance skateboarder of sorts. Not only does the homie skate and travel the globe as an AM for one of New York City’s most iconic skateboard companies, he also puts on for his city and fans as rapper extraordinaire, Black Dave.
Mass Appeal recently caught up with the multi-talented “grinder” in Washington Square Park on the set of his latest shoot. The day’s perfect weather made for some ideal scenery by the infamous park fountain. The video, directed by Jason Ano and co-directed by Black Dave himself, will visualize “Take It Back,” the first single off of his upcoming Black Bart Mixtape. It features a day in the life with Black Dave that ends up in a chaotic melee, which ultimately gets him arrested.
