The day after I interviewed The Suicide Boys for No Jumper I went to their sold out show a couple blocks away from the OSS store in Downtown LA and watched them kill it along with Pouya, Fat Nick, Black Smurf, JGRXXN and various other affiliates. Here’s what I managed to capture on my iPhone.Read post →
I first became aware of The Suicide Boys when I saw them lurking around backstage at the first #seshollowaterboyz show at The House Of Blues last year. Since then they’ve released a ton of music including a high profile mixtape with Pouya and their online following has increased rapidly. They just came into town on tour a few days ago and I was able to get them to come through the ONSOMESHIT store for an in depth interview in which we talked about some hard hitting stuff, namely race, religion and drug addiction. Incredibly, Pouya and Fat Nick showed up towards the end of the interview which was the first time these guys ever met him and we got Pouya to say a few words about them as well. I’m hyped on this interview and I hope everyone enjoys it!Read post →
Today I’m happy to present you with what might just be our most anticipated episode of No Jumper yet. You see, Antwuan got arrested the first time we tried to do this (you’ll hear all about that in the interview)so it’s been a few months, during which I have been asked no less than 5 times per day when this was going to come out. I finally got Twuan into the studio with some help from Caleb Quanbeck and we basically just had a conversation for a little over an hour and while I felt like it was totally incoherent while it was happening, upon editing it I found myself really enjoying it. But I’ll let you be the judge of that. So without further explanation, here it is, the Antwuan Dixon podcast!Read post →
TA is Xavier’s friend from back in Memphis who has become immortalized in SHWB folklore due to various shout outs (“my weed man professional, he do not say no – TA“) over the years. Mr. Double Dolla flew out to LA for the very first time to open up for Bones, Xavier, Chris and Eddy at their sold out show at The Observatory and I ended up hanging out with him a lot during his trip. I wasn’t planning on interviewing him but as soon as I spent a few minutes around the East Memphis Trap Lord I knew that I had to have him on the show. TA has the gift of gab and I would have had him on the show just to shoot the shit but we were also able to learn a lot about the early days of Xavier and Chris’ career plus what it’s like running the streets of the M serving packs and what we can expect from TA music wise going into 2016. Most notably look for the video we just shot for his new song ONSOMESHIT to drop very soon on the No Jumper channel.Read post →
This week on No Jumper I interviewed Zac from FTP aka FUCK THE POPULATION, a so called “anti streetwear” streetwear brand from Los Angeles. Zac is only 21 and he has been making big moves over the past couple years, amassing a sizable fan base and pissing off streetwear elder-statesmen at every turn.Read post →
I’ve been listening to Black Kray like crazy for the last couple years (you heard him in Brandon Begin’s Merritt video) and luckily when I asked him to come on the podcast he was down to do it. I had plenty of questions for the crown prince of the Goth Money Records movement and Kray came with the hard truth. We were joined by fellow Goth Money soldier Hunned Mill as well as producer Nedarb Nagrom. Check out Black Kray on SoundCloud and give him a follow.Read post →
Everyone in LA who has even a passing interest in rap music has heard of HAM ON EVERYTHING at this point. Adam and Romo, the brains behind HAM have been holding down the LA scene like none other for quite a few years now and they’ve book huge names such as Juicy J, Waka Floka, Chief Keef, Wiz Khalifa and Lil B. I was excited to have them on the show to get their story. These dudes are both hilarious and I learned a lot about two of the most hard working dudes I know…Read post →
The Seshollowaterboyz have been busy amassing a massive fan base for the past couple years but compared to Bones, Xavier Wulf and Chris, there is comparatively less information available about the fourth member to join the group, Eddy Baker. I did the right thing and got the man in the No Jumper studio for an intense grilling. He brought along his closest confidant out of the SHWB crew, Xavier Wulf along with his #healthyboyz lieutenant Chilly Sosa. What resulted was an amazing conversation between friends which really sheds light on what a great guy Eddy is. Shout out to the guys for coming through and by all means, subscribe to No Jumper for more interviews each and every week!Read post →
I met Jacob Messex because he walked up to me at the bar and just asked me what I do. Which is a pretty ordinary way to meet somebody unless you live in Hollywood, where people don’t seem terribly likely to strike up a conversation for no reason. I mentioned that I do a podcast and that he might be a good guest. He seemed interested, but then I mentioned the interview idea to my good friend Justin Maruco (who you might remember from the Jake Seeley podcast) and he told me that not only would he make sure that it happened but that he had a grip of good questions in mind. Jacob ended up bringing his close friend and amazing skateboarder, Oscar Meza with him and we picked their brains, gleaning some much needed insight into both of their careers as well as the skateboard world in general.

It’s tough to follow up an interview as high profile as Ian Connor’s but Nick Colletti is a worthy successor. While Ian likes to wave guns around in 2000 dollar sneakers, Nick wears Birkenstocks and films himself speaking into his phone at 3 in the morning for the amusement of his 1 million plus Vine followers. I tried to pry into Nick’s mind but mostly we just ended up discussing current events and weed. Enjoy and please Follow No Jumper on Soundcloud.Read post →
The other day I texted my buddy Trev “let’s get that Shane podcast cracking next week”. He responded “Ian is in town and they want to do it tonight”. And that, my friends, is how I ended up interviewing two of the most enigmatic young men in the fashion world on 3 hours notice. Shane has completely avoided video interviews up until this point and Ian has only done a handful but they came through, smoked cigarettes and answered all my questions. Shane came out of his shell a little bit and Ian was boisterous as ever. Enjoy this and by all means, Subscribe to us on iTunes and Follow us on Soundcloud:Read post →
For the 8th episode of No Jumper I had two of my DJ/producer homies on for a frank discussion of just about everything from the extremely serious (mass shootings, parenthood) to the deeply immature (buttholes).
DJ Two Stacks is perhaps best known for producing both Kreayshawn’s smash hit “Gucci Gucci” as well as producing a child made up of approximately 50% her DNA. He’s an accomplished producer regardless of all that and has been making ever increasing waves with his new projects, Depressed Teenager and Snaked. Follow his Soundcloud here.
Ned is perhaps best known for the “Tears On My MPK” instrumental tape that he did with Xavier Wulf although he’s also done songs for Black Kray and various other underground celebrities. Ned hasn’t impregnated anyone yet although not for lack of trying. Follow him on Soundcloud here.Read post →
The other day I saw on Instagram that Gangsta Boo was celebrating her birthday at our local bar out here in Hollywood, Black. I figured that I would head over and somehow convince her to appear on my podcast. I rolled through with my usual crew of deviants, I got an IG photo, I swam up in her DM’s and miraculously just a few days later I had the Queen Of Memphis herself in the OSS store for an interview. I brought along Vine sensation/overall funnyman Nick Colletti as well as professional BMX rider/human compost pile Brandon Begin to assist. We ended up having an hour long conversation about not just her career but much, much more.

I’ve been following Drew Millard on Twitter for a few years now ever since he first got hired by Vice to helm their once-fledgling music vertical, Noisey. Recently Drew made the move to LA and switched his style up, leaving music journalism behind to work for Vice full time. I had him come down to the OSS store along with his good friend and similarly prolific Tweeter, Robesman and we had a great conversation that stretched on into the night, casually crossing the 2 hour mark, a first in my time doing podcasts. Check out the list of topics below, follow @drewmillard, @robesman and @onsomeshit on Twitter and enjoy.

Grant Cobb tattoos me and as such, we have a special relationship. We’ve had some pretty intense conversations over the years, mostly concerning tattoos, partying, life, art, fighting and drugs. Luckily we were able to capture a lot of those stories and much more in this interview.

They say the truth comes from the mouths of babes. Well Pouya and Fat Nick are, if nothing else, babes. Pause. These dudes are 20 years old each and they have no filter. Pretty much from the very start this conversation gravitated towards everybody’s favorite topic: sex. Most rappers keep their foul sexual tales close to their chest but Pouya and Nick happily shared many of their most graphic groupie tales with childlike glee. I’ve been a fan of their music for a while but after this interview, it was official, I’m sold, these dudes are fucking awesome.

When I started doing these No Jumper podcasts I knew that I had to get the Shop Jeen girls on the show. I met Erin and Ameelia by chance a few years back and ever since I’ve been amazed by the business that they’ve built out of nothing but hard work and a deep understanding […]Read post →
To some, Aint Nobody Cool is nothing but a cool Project Pat lyric. To others, it is an inescapable Los Angeles brand with a penchant for pop culture logo bites, worn by everyone from your local pill dealer to Miley Cyrus and everyone in between. I became friends with the guys behind the brand 6 months or so ago and knew that if I could get them on the show that it would make for an explosive interview. I was not wrong. What follows is an hour and a half of real talk with 2 men who are paving their own way in this world even if the only thing they plan on doing once they have completed said paving is to listen to Young Thug and think up some more t shirt designs. Enjoy!Read post →
Ever since I started TCU TV (can you believe we’re 25 episodes in with 5 more recorded?) I’ve known that I wanted to eventually start a second podcast where I could interview all of the interesting people I know outside of BMX. So today I’m happy to present the first episode of No Jumper in which I interview Ryan Denehey. You may not know who Ryan is (unless you remember late 2000’s action sports website “BNQT”) but he’s an unbelievably successful young entrepreneur who has started and sold a couple of different businesses to some high profile firms, namely Gannett and Groupon. Hopefully some of you reading this will get some inspiration and use it to start something.Read post →
Some lunatic goes crazy on some skaters bombing a hill. He smacked the camera out of the kids hands (supposedly) prior to all this. I don’t know how this kid kept his composure like this. How many of you would have swung on old boy?Read post →
