Recently, over a "sip session" with our cousin, which is a period involving alcoholic beverages, hip-hop discussion and watching the latest rap videos on YouTube, Rocks Off ran across Philadelphia rapper Meek Mill's mutual passion for motorcycles, but his was a bit different than ours.
You see, Meek Mill loves dirt bikes. In an urban setting like Philly, where we can't imagine there are exactly endless piles of dirt to jump, you wonder if there's a disconnect. There isn't.
We first heard about dirt-bike clubs in major cities a handful of years ago from our boy Charlie, who's from the Boogie Down Bronx. He rides bikes, too, and has spoken enthusiastically about dirt-bike clubs throughout the New York boroughs.
The dirt bike scene in Philadelphia is rich. That inspired Rocks Off to count down the five best motorcycle hip-hop videos.
Here we go. Zoom, zoom.
