Davonte quitting Illegal Civ to join Tyshawn and Nakel?

Hope so. Davonte is a great filmer and IC is wack af. I think he'd pair really well with whatever Tyshawn and Nak have planned.

I’m surprised anyone really cares what company tyshawn and nak are starting. Nak has outted himself as one of the biggest clowns in the game. Tyshawn’s better off without him. I can’t see it working. Would’ve been better staying on FA.

Godspeed was a good video. Ishod going would mean this brand will make noise. I think Carl Aikens skates really well but it wouldn’t be as big of a deal as Ishod.

i was thinking this too, IC has been at a standstill for a minute. Kevin White, Alex Midler, and Zach Saraceno would be a crazy addition to the team.

I haven’t heard a single thing from or about Illegal Civ since they turned those dudes pro and North Hollywood came out.

if tyshawn had quit on his own or at least wasn’t obviously stirring something up that involved nak, i would be excited. that said, just because a person starts a company doesn’t mean they are going to be the art director, so regardless of how we feel about either person in the sense of their ability to successfully run a brand’s image, it doesn’t matter. obviously as the main names/faces behind the brand they will have to be apart of the image but, i feel like if anything this will be run by someone at supreme or something with their obvious ties and how much other shit they’re trying to do simultaneously in their careers. i’m not big on supreme at all but it does sell and if anything it makes sense for them to get behind these guy’s company more so than violet or fa being the age/talent factor.

Tyshawn is the poster boy for skateboarding worldwide and arguably the most marketable skateboarder on the planet. Illegal Civ is a meme skateboard company that looks about as relevant as Roy Purdey in 2022.

Given the chance to leave Illegal Civ for a company started by Tyshawn and his friend Nakel you'd have to be desperately committed to remaining irrelevant not to take it.

A skater who actually fits the bill just did this and I can guarantee I wouldn’t want to join Disorder regardless of the founder’s reach

Ok yeah he's not Sky Brown. But there aren't many marketable skateboarders that have core market appeal like he does.

On the second point...Disorder or Illegal Civ. Tough one to call.

I agree. Doesn't seem like NAK and Tyshawn have any experience in the art department, but they do have the image, connections, and notoriety to really make a solid move in making a company and forming a decent team, if done right. A SOTY and a Movie Star. Like the SOTY AVE and movie star Jason Dill lol

EDIT: Also, given that Davonte films Nak and Tyshawn as well as the crew of dudes with the likes Mikey and the IC/SoCal skate rats already over the years, it doesn't really seem weird to film both guys and others in their crew of friends and use each person's footage for both respective teams. Not all skate filmers are tied to one exact company unless its under contract with like nike sb or adidas or something. And sometimes a homie catches second or third angles to send to the boss or video editing staff

Was watching the GODSPEED rough cuts the other day, got to the part where midler back 3'd into the carwash bank and everyone was celebrating afterwards. Seeing mikey alfred in that moment, with that face, those mannerisms, and that fucking outfit, stirred some new type of rage within me. I hope i never see him again.

I agree, he has a part in godspeed, super good. It really stuck out to me because i wasnt expecting it. He had my favorite clips aside from ishod. I know he can't help it, but he totally has the face of a spoiled rich kid.
