The show follows the exploits of the Long Beach, California native, who also runs a clothing line and raps with his group Fly Society. Tonight, the second episode of the series is set to air at 10 P.M. EST and overall Being Terry Kennedy looks to further the long-standing connection between the skate and hip-hop community.
