10 Questions: Dorien Wrenn

What is your full name?
Dorien Wrenn aka Durty D

Where are you from originally?
The great City of Atlanta... Home of the brave and SO SO DEF!

Where is the last place you rode your skateboard?
Hmmm... good one. Be right back! Aiight I'm back (10 minutes later). Just rode my skateboard to the store to buy a forty. Did you know you could buy a forty for 2 dollars? Can't beat that!

Describe your first memory of skateboarding where you currently live.
I can tell you my 1st thought! "show everybody up!" Now 1st memory was interesting. I met this dude Alphonso that by the way, told me I showed er'body up, invited me to an art show later that night. Looking like shit, I asked him if I could go the way I am, and he looked at me like when Dave Chappelle played P. Diddy and said "Maybe you should rock some Urban Outfitters, maybe something from the Gap". Needless to say, my first memory of Atlanta was Gay Gay Gay! Alphonso my nigguh so I can joke about it.

Who do you skate with most, of all the people you know?
The twinz ( Sid & Thurm) Alphonso fo sho' and Matt Creasy. We have a video in the works. There's others like Anthony Williams, Pat Washington, J.Remmy, etc...

Name one thing that could make skateboarding better in your area.
More Moms chilling at the spot, like my home girl Jill! If you reading this Jill, (whispering) "call me". Giggity giggity

Who do you look up to the most, and why-skating, or otherwise?
That's a toss up between Clyde Singleton and Gucci Mane! I can listen to them talk all day. Clyde taught me about the skate industry and Gucci taught me how to make and sell crack.

Do you think you will still be skateboarding 20 years from now?
Hell No! A grown man in pampers on a skateboard is not a good look. I'm about to call a press conference for my retirement as we speak!

What is the most common place you go to eat before/during/after a day of skateboarding?
I eat spinach before and when I skate. But unlike Popeye, the spinach goes to my legs! Now on a date, I found that you can take a byrd anywhere. A Wendy's 5 piece got me some A** in Tampa, but that's so 97'. I got that new new, I'm taking byrds, on a candle light dinner to the Waffle House! That is the definition of pimping in a recession ladies and gentlemen.

What is the last trick you learned, and how many tries did it take to learn it?
To be honest, I really don't try to learn new tricks. I wanna perfect the ones I have! I did do a McTwist the last time I played a game of skate though and that was first try.

What are you going to do, now that you are done with this questionnaire?
Finish updating, roll to Jacksonville to collect my check for this interview and then... I'M GOING TO DISNEY LAND!


  1. pimping in a recession

    now that's great stuff

  2. I like they way that came out Norm. lets collabo of future projects fo sho'

  3. Thanks for that shout out, Dorien!
    You know I can't just drop my boy Q off and not watch, I enjoy it too much! I don't necessary like watching him bust his ass, but it's amazing to see such focus in him as he tries to learn a new trick! So, as long as skating remains a positive outlet, whether it's for recreation, self-expression, etc., I'll support him doing it! The awesome part for me is that Q loves having me there as much as I love being there! That's what's up!!!!
