Mike Corbett, aka Maccy, is a proper hip-hop don whom I had the pleasure of living with many years back in a (chaotic) share-house in Australia. Whilst his epic t-shirt, tape and toy collections are gold dust in themselves, it’s all about the collectable skateboard decks this time around. Maccy D’s even commissioned one himself from artist Mark Drew, a collection of his favourite album cassettes stacked on top of each other. This collection was recently updated with the Beastie Boys signed one ‘5 Boroughs’ deck, done before MCA’s passing.
