William Wallace once said “Every man dies. Not every man really lives.” While that hold true for many, it definitely doesn’t apply to Bobbito Garcia.
Born and raised on the streets of the Upper West Side in New York City, Bobbito Garcia has long been an influencer in the culture. From basketball and hip hop to sneaker culture and film, Garcia has been on the front lines of an experience that many have watched, heard and learned from yet have not truly experienced. We’ve seen his stories in Vibe, watched him on the blacktop, seen him on ESPN and heard him control the crowd at legendary parties across the city that never sleeps. With his latest project, “Rock Rubber 45s”, Bobbito takes us through his life in ways that we haven’t seen before.
His journey starts with the past, from the story of his parents to his experiences in high school, college and adulthood. It’s a personal story, one that reveals the triumphs, struggles and emotional hardships he has faced in his life journey. It’s an amazing film that highlights his life, one that few have the opportunity to experience. The stars he’s met, the athletes he’s interviewed and the places he’s been, Bobbito opens his life to us in “Rock Rubber 45s” in an uninhibited way. So listen in and then get the film on Vimeo, Amazon, Google Play, Vudu or iTunes. It’s a must watch.
