CCS Presents: Zoo York Mixtape to True East (Part 1)

Learn about Zoo York's inner-city skateboarding roots and all of the hip hop that grew alongside with the scene.

It’s been two decades since the inception of the Zoo York skateboard company. A lot’s happened since then, both to the skateboard scene and New York City itself. As one of the most influential brands and teams in the history of Big Apple shredding, Zoo York was on the ground floor of all the cultural happenings that were unfolding during the 90’s and 2000’s. Watch as CCS presents skateboarder and longtime Zoo filmer, RB Umali, in part 1 of Zoo York Mixtape to True East to discuss all of the things that went into the groundbreaking Zoo York Mixtape, including its correlation with the New York City hip hop scene that was burgeoning on a little college radio show called the The Stretch Armstrong and Bobbito Show. Plug in and learn about the Zoo roots that were growing way before the New York City “facelift” and all of today’s video editing conveniences.
