HipHop super producer Swizz Beatz (@THEREALSWIZZZ) is really into his vintage BMX bikes! I found out about his love for BMX bikes when he posted a picture on Twitter of his “Green Goblin” bike which was a refurbished Chrome Haro Master(The mid shool one with the bash guard) with all green accessories and green Skyway tuff2’s!! When I dug a little deeper I found out that Swizz has a whole crew of refurbished vintage BMX bikes in his collection, he’s got vintage, GT’s, Mongoose, Haro’s and Dyno’s and most of his bikes have Mags and that’s dope! So I’m guessing Swizz use to ride BMX back in the day, he is from the BX so I’m sure he must have ridden at Mullalys, I wonder if he’s nice on a bike I gotta do some research on that.
Swizz Beatz’s recent BMX post on Instagram is a picture of a dope vintage Dyno that he bought for his wife Alicia Keys, check it out below!

I can’t wait to see the pics of them riding their Bikes together, that would be really dope! I really want to interview Swizz about his BMX collection and pick his brain about his thoughts on BMX and how he got into it, hopefully I can make that happen this year. He would also be a great contestant on my BMX Challenge series which I’ll be shooting again this year, Stay tuned!

Velosolutions flew me down to the OKC to MC/Host event so you know I had to bring my camera and get some footage of all the fun and action! I also brough down some SCBF prize goodies for the top 4 men and women to take home courtesy of DHDWear, Team Corrosive and FreshPark!

It was great to see Keagan, Tommy, Alana and Alec out there shredding, we go way back! It was like a little BMX fam reunion! Steven Penland and Brian Streiby came out to get busy at the event!!! Now I haven’t seen them since the NBL days, it was an awesome surprise!

The vibes were awesome! All the people who work and run the OKC Boat House District/River Sports OKC facility were really nice as well as the all the OKC locals. I definitely made some new friends in OKC!

The action was great but when the 1/4, semis and mains went down it got crazy!! Super exciting head to head racing action went. This was definitely one of the best events of the year so far!
