[VIDEO] Oddisee - 'Caprice Down'

Visuals for the compelling track off of The Beauty 
In All, with an equally compelling story. In the
producer/MC’s words:  

The crew’s founder was a skater named Michael Green
A.K.A. Blacc. Mike was gunned down in 2005 over a case
of mistaken identity and the skaters in the video are three
members from Hammer City: Juice, E.C., and ManMan
(Blacc Mike’s brother). Amongst the gang violence and
drugs that has plagued the neighborhood surrounding
14th St. in Long Beach, the skaters found refuge in a
park they dubbed “Ghetto Park” which later became
known as “The Michael K. Green Skate Park.”
