You’re most likely questioning what the awkward host of VICE’s “One Star Reviews” and “Better Man” has to do with skating or with Jenkem. Earlier than you remark “Why would I care about this?” simply know that Taji Ameen was really part of the early Jenkem years and likewise has long-standing ties to the New York Metropolis skate scene.
In the event you had been skating in New York round 2003 to 2013, you undoubtedly bumped into Taji on the Brooklyn Banks or lurking round LES. Again within the day, he was even in some iconic New York movies like Mixtape 2 and Chopped Liver and had a slew of sponsors that will’ve made any child jealous.
In the event you noticed Taji, you most likely noticed Billy Rohan with him too. There was a time when the 2 of them, together with Rob Campbell and Rodney Torres, had been skating, filming, and lurking throughout the town recurrently.
Over the previous few years, Taji’s work with VICE took him away from his skateboarding previous a bit bit. We wished to have him reconnect with skating and reminisce on these early days, so we met up with him and his previous good friend Billy Rohan to skate, catch up, and freestyle a bit bit.
Who is aware of, perhaps we’ll get a Taji and Billy cut up half sooner or later.
