Full-lengths filmed in a single city are something very special. Unlike videos for which you went on tour, they reflect the environment of the skaters and often capture the vibe very well. Frankfurt am Main, or FFM, is such a city with a very special flair: especially the word "rough" would describe the mood there best. Levent Efe has captured exactly that perfectly in his "Hoodtape Vol. 2" and portrayed quite well the interesting and to us especially known as a very "down-to-earth" scene. What his crew has in common with the Banks & Smith families from "The Fresh Prince of Bel Air" and why they are greeted by loudspeaker announcements throughout the city, the filmmaker tells in a short Q&A.
That's coming up next. Currently, the small square in front of the Burberry store on Goethestrasse is to be renamed "Easy Money Platz".
Too lazy, haha. I think many people are more interested in skating themselves and don't want to watch all the hustle with a cam.
Both. Some of them already existed as a crew, some came along and some I mixed myself. I've only filmed my homies so far.
Meeting at Willy, that's when you think of the best spots for missions. Getting bogged down at the first spot. Then attack the best snacks in the area. Continue to the second spot, which is usually a manny pad. In the evening back to the Willy and finish the day with a cool drink. Moritz tells the hot stories of the day to the younger ones at the lighter, haha.
Employee of the month goes to Mr. Easy Money.
I won't say now, but the person knows he's meant, haha.
The most famous train driver in Germany, aka the Bahn Babo (who introduces and exits the video) ran over the station, turned around and wanted to shoot the clip with us in which he does the splits and someone ollied over him. Since then he always greets us over the loudspeakers from the train when he sees us somewhere. As a 60-year-old guy, i'd like to be like this! Top guy and wider arms than the Terminator. But if you watch the video you will notice that the Willy became more and more the place to be this year.
At least many have now made it to the Willy. I hope so, but I think everyone knows the convenience of going to the park. To all of you who want to get your bread and butter in the Streets; Keep your Spot clean and Securities are just doing their job.
All of us together are like the Banks/Smith Family. I'm Jeffrey, haha.
