I’m gonna nip this before this becomes something else….
I AM NO LONGER A “PROFESSIONAL” skater. Meaning…I don’t ride for anyone, I don’t skate contest (never did really anyway), I don’t have to film sections if i don’t want to, I don’t have to travel to places if i don’t want to, and I can wear ANY products i would like to ride/ wear.
Razors and I split ways being that I haven’t skated “Professionally” in over a year and I have a steady job which keeps me from skating everyday. I’m simply not available enough to be a “Pro” Skater.
The people on the team, (Dre, Aragon, Julian) are my best friends / family.They will always be my friends with or without skating and I will always chill with them. Same goes to anyone thats become my friend through skating.
I will always skate because it is an extension of myself and i will continue drop some sections if i feel the need to. But from now on in my life, skating will just be a PLEASURE for me and not business / a job. (Not saying that it is for anyone else, Just speaking for myself). Along this long journey in my “Career” of skating things changed drastically from pleasure to business. I just would like to skate for fun again like it was in NYC when i was kid.
Hope I cleared it up and there’s no hostility.
Don’t get me wrong, being pro in skating is exclusive! I’ve traveled to so many places, learned so much and met so many good friends its made me evolve as a person. Had I not skated, I wouldn’t be the man i am today. It was just my particular roll as a pro that made it very business like and tiresome. It came to a point where if i wore a certain pair of sneakers or said certain things, i had to answer to people. And if you know me i speak my mind and do as i please. I’m the type of pro where, if you look up to me I’m not going to filter myself or act like someone else. If you love me you love me, if you hate me then skip my section or don’t talk to me. No biggie. But i will always be myself.
In a nut shell it was a combination of things. My injuries for one, to which made people doubt my abilities as a skater and they showed their true colors. That is what made think whats next in my life? I need a plan B. Then all the politics in skating I just got tiresome of it. So now I’m in a position where I don’t need to skate for money anymore and i can just enjoy the pleasure of it. So why not? Why not go back to when it was just fun to session with your boys. Not stress to get clips for a section because if you don’t your check will get cut. Ya dig?
So don’t get me wrong. Being a pro and being a skater in general is the shit. Its just all about your perception on it and how you go about it. This is just MY story. Everyone is different and everyone can change everything.
Ya boy, Murda.

In the past year or so, blading wellness has been getting more and more attention. It may be due to the fact that I’m more personally aware of it (being in my mid 20’s) or maybe it’s because a lot of older bladers are in the limelight these days. Whatever the case, it is important to take care of your body.
As rollerbladers, we put a lot of stress on our joints, muscles, and our overall physical well being. Most of us start blading at a young age and don’t think about stretching, or eating well, or even taking care of injuries. The fact of the matter is, you don’t really notice your injuries that much when you’re young. You can recover faster, and you are more interested in learning the newest grind, or lacing the big handrail in a session, than preparing your body for the torment you put it through.
This Blading Wellness series is dedicated to bringing awareness to taking care of your body. We were lucky enough to have Corey Grantham take the initiative, and seek out some pro’s at the Montreal Classic this year. First up is Mike ‘Murda’ Johnson and his take on blading wellness. Corey and I got to sit down and have a chat with him, and see what an experienced pro has to say. Watch the video, and form your own conclusions. This will be a 5 part series; we also have perspectives from Rob G, Brandon Smith, Erik Bailey, and Jon Julio. Be sure to check back for more interviews.
