Oakland Drops Beats - 'The Legendary Skateboarder', Ron Allen aka MC Intelligence

Introducing, MC Intelligence aka Ron Allen

A Thousand WordZ is especially happy to announce that we have the Legendary Skateboarder, Ron Allen, aka MC Intelligence, opening the live musical portion of our show at 7:30pm. 

Ron Allen was one of the first pro-skaters of African Descent, whose "company Heeterz helped to expand hip-hop’s popularity among the skateboarding crowd by co-promoting with music labels like Hieroglyphics Imperium and Rawkus, packaging skateboards with music CDs."  ~(

Recently, I had the pleasure of interviewing MC Intelligence about his last tour a few months back, where he visited skate parks along his hip hop tour through Michigan, Chicago, New York, and many other smaller cities. Ron states, he is invigorated by his last trip, and is planning on touring once again, after the holiday seasons, and was very pleased with the tours turn out. He also had the pleasure of interviewing Del The Funky Homosapien along his tour, which was an amazing experience in self-awareness for him. Ron is excited to recall how Del was excited to meet him too. At this stage in Ron's career, he is remembering his impact on the skate world, and realizing that he has a seat at the legends table, and is now focusing on sharing his hip hop with the world as a tool to uplift the same youth he has inspired to skate.
