The Ganja Grind: Supreme’s “BLESSED” Proves Skater Tyshawn Jones Is King of NYC

The Ganja Grind: Supreme’s “BLESSED” Proves Skater Tyshawn Jones Is King of NYC

Tyshawn Jones, Na-Kel Smith, Kevin Bradley, and the rest of Supreme’s youth crew are back, turning in a heavy late entry for 2018’s skate video of the year.

Tyshawn Jones, Na-Kel Smith, Kevin Bradley, and the rest of Supreme’s youth crew are back, turning in a heavy late entry for 2018’s skate video of the year.

In 2016, Supreme — the New York City skate shop turned fashion house — drew national attention, ire, and the store’s infamous line of hopeful customers for the release of a red masonry brick stamped with the company’s bold italicized box logo. Unsurprisingly, the clunky ephemera sold out. Last week, the sartorial darling did themselves one better: In the era of high-speed buffering, four-inch screens, and laptops without disc drives, Supreme sold out a newly-released DVD in less than a minute.

By the end of the holiday weekend, the highly sought-after $48 digital video disc bundle — which included a copy of the brand’s latest skate video BLESSED, paired with a commemorative photo book and t-shirt — was popping up on eBay and resale site StockX for more than triple the retail price. 

But like most skateboarders, I was more concerned with the contents of the video than the fit or cost of another limited edition shirt, and immediately started searching for a bootleg stream or download. Eventually, I tracked down the video via a discreetly-listed PornHub link hidden amongst hentai ads.
