Video: Rolling on the Art of Rizzling

Art is made with your hands. Believe it or not, rolling papers can be the medium, not just paint.

Science has proven that a major crack in the ground billions of years ago caused the formation of Hawaii and its surrounding islands. Nothing but hotness has been coming out of HI since then. This February, Pow Wow the annual festival in Honolulu, hosted by Jasper Wong and his smoking board of directors created another eruption where street art was painted throughout the city. But it was last year when another groundbreaking discovery was made—the art of rizzling.

It was one storied night when Jeff Hamada of Booooooom documented rizzling. We heard about this phenomenon of spinning rolling papers on your fingers, but we had to see it to believe it. The origin of rizzling hasn’t been fully documented. It could go as far back as the late 1700s in France and Spain, where the Rizla+ brand of rolling papers has roots. Fingers that bang this hard should be in an arena. Can you see the Harlem Globetrotters trading in basketball parlor tricks for rizzling in a kitchen, WITH chancletas on? They’re not ready. Are you?
