Shane O’Neill & The Skate Mentality

May 26, 2010

By OhioSkateUniv

As everyone who skateboards is aware, The Berrics and Skate Mental released a digital download of Shane O’Neill’s unreleased video part.

Upon seeing this part, the general reaction was, “Rap in a Zero video?” and “Who is Tom Asta?” follow by an immediate, “That guy rips!”. […]
