Isn't it crazy to think that Theotis Beasley is from the same hood as Antwuan? Of course they probably had slightly different lives, but even with Antwuan as his older homie, Theotis manages to be the nicest person I have ever met and has never touched weed or any drug (not even fuckin cigs! not once!).  I hate to say it, but the poorer neighborhoods of inglewood or hawthorne are engineered to produce people like Antwuan, and Theotis is the exception to the rule. So before we say we want Antwuan to die in jail, just know that though he makes some particularly bad decisions, he's a product of his environment. Therefore since Kab had grown up surrounded by aging, desperate, and bicurious uncles, it's understandable why he's such a cocksucker.

This.

Never forget that Antwaun's older Bro was a role model to him- and look where he ended up.
I'm not passing blame or fault here, a lot of people get caught up in circumstances that are beyond their control-- there are also a lot of people that are content to just get by, and fulfill a lot of stereotypes placed (and forced) upon them...which is easy to do when you are constantly stigmatized.

Although race isn't as big an issue in this scene, it would be interesting to find out if there are some older dudes trying to look out for the younger ones- but then you realize that not everyone was brought up the same way, or will act the same way in a given situation.
It's just sad to see a young person, especially one that could affect so many that look like him and come from those neighborhoods, wasting so much of his life away.

The corny kids get made fun of until for not being "cool" until they reach adulthood and see the "cool" guys in fucked up situations. Image is not everything.

I can totally see him making a comeback as a born again christian, Hosoi style .

forreal anwtuan is a straight up HOOD NIGGA. if it hadnt been for skateboarding he'd either be dead or in jail right now. He's his own man and needs to take responsibility for his actions but 99% of slap wouldnt make it growing up in that kind of environment, let alone end up getting rich off of something like skateboarding. dude really is 1 ina million but like i said that hood nigga mentality is whats holdin em back. like alot of these rappers you see coming out of fucked up situations, you gotta learn to leave that old mindset behind and grow as person so you can live a new, much better lifestyle. to be honest the only way i can see him doing this is if he seriously just went straight edge. i dont know if he should even smoke weed anymore, just because that might draw him back into that lifestyle. if you've seen twuan come up like i have you'd know that deep down he's one cool ass dude. he's just got those inner demons (like all of us) that hold him back, although his personal problems are alot more severe than most of ours. at the end of the day all you can do is hope for the best. i fucks wit twuan cuz he truly did have an influence on my skating since i first saw em years ago. he has more god-given talent than 90% of the industry, even got a co-sign by mullen. if you're a "real" skater you gotta respect dudes skating. he's got that undeniable talent & a truly unique style. fuck all these hatin ass niggas tryna put em down.

and on that note...



Antwuan Dixon - Baker Has A Deathwish Small | Large



he's known for the nollie heels but dont forget that this nigga still be fakie double flippin 10 stairs, and switch frontside flips over the rail down double sets. he fucking rips. period.

Ultimately he is himself responsible for his actions but I can't help to think his sponsors could have acted sooner to help prevent it.
Most of us enjoy weed and beer but there was nothing inspiring to me about his reputation off the board or how he tried to come across as some cool thug drinking loads and smoking an ounce a day. If I knew him personally I'd probably feel sorry for him.
How many more dudes are going to end up in jail before certain companies realise it's pretty dumb to advertize your brand using drug addiction and binge drinking as selling points. The skating should speak for itself, as Antwuan's did.

Word...You see so many fellow pros who have had similar problems - but if Twuan' don't want it, Twuan don't want it...

I think in the Epicly Latered with Antwuan, Reynolds touches on it a little bit. He more or less says he would suggest going his route of cleaning himself up a bit, but he can't force it on him. Yea he can't - but at the same time I wish someone would just get in Dixon's face and tell him what a loser he is - that's what people do for you who really care about you. Everyone seems to be pretty scared around the dude from what I make...that and they'll let him go on with the stupidity to market to the young crowd...

I liked his toast at the end of Chicken Bone though to everyone in the room with the fried chicken - hoping he doesn't stay out of the spotlight too much longer.

"I just tell the truth about skateboarding" Ah, such a fine line isn't it...

He's a big pile of shit and doesn't deserve what little success he had. Hope he dies in jail.

Really?? That's just low man. People can bounce back from all that. Look at Hosoi, Carroll, Mariano, etc.

baker was the worst sponser antwuan could have ended up on. Baker ruined antuwan. Damn he is a natural talent though, I just want to see more footage.


... nope, it is his fault after all ... no one told him to use all his sponsor-money for drugs instead of cleaning himself up ... i higly doubt a comeback or even a drug-free life .. but i would love to see this fool skateing again ...

besides that: deathwish/supra need this guy as there new am. it is about time:

i got love for antwuan, but some of yall youngsters reference the Baker vids like theyre Video Days or some schit...

Oh I know that, Supra stopped paying him a while ago. I'm just not sure that he's in prison until next year without seeing something reliable.
