Today, Oddisee drops a video from his “The Beauty in All” album for the song “Caprice Down.” The video was directed by Jeremy Ian Thomas and features a skate crew called “Hammer City” who live in Long Beach, California.

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.”
