'Parental Advisory'

Photograph By Karpinski

DGK's "Parental Advisory" was released in early December and was one of the best of 2012. Not your standard quick-cut skate video, "Parental Advisory" was directed by Randall Kirk and follows a group of young skaters traversing the mean streets of the big city. DGK founder Stevie Williams had a standout part. Meanwhile, veterans Marcus McBride, Rodrigo TX and Josh Kalis showed the world once again why they're legends. Along with the great skating, there were plenty of surprise cameos from skaters and rappers alike; Juicy J of Three 6 Mafia, Salman Agah, Kareem Campbell and Steven Cales all made appearances.
