Along with posting new music from emerging rappers around the clock, here at The Masked Gorilla we meet up and interview the very artists and figures who influence the culture. The bi-montly 'Unmasked' feature is an in-depth video-interview series, featuring those prominent figures shaping the scene. Check out the latest episode of our exclusive series below.
While in Los Angeles hanging around Paul Rodriguez' private skatepark, I ran into none other than Torey Pudwill. Torey is a twenty-one year old professional skater who's sponsors include Plan B Skateboards, DVS Footwear, Diamond Supply Company, and many, many others as you will find out while watching this interview.
If you're not a skater and don't recognize Torey from his top pro standings, you may recognize him from MTV's 'The Fantasy Factory', where he was featured promoting his griptape company 'Grizzly Grip'. In this interview we chop it up with him about Grizzly Grip, appearance on TV, being a pro skater at a young age and of course his view on emerging rappers.
If you don't make it through the whole ten-minute interview, make sure you at least skip to the last few minutes where Torey pretty much sums up the whole ideology behind The Masked Gorilla. Yeah, he went in. UDPATE: We just updated this with a new, short edit. Enjoy!
