Neon lights, g-funk on four wheels were the setting of our latest party in LA. We hosted our friends at the historic World on Wheels Roller in Mid City with music by Orange Calderon, DJ Toy, Jeff Gordon (Coach Bombay & Spiccoli) & BUDDY to celebrate the release of Bodega x New Balance 997s "No Days Off" collaboration.
If you were coming up in the 80’s this was the hottest club in town serving as neutral territory for youth near gang-scarred South L.A.. World on Wheels goes back to the roots of hip hop as the city’s best DJs, breakdancers, and KDAY radio all came through to this spot.
“In middle school, it was the place to be. In L.A., you have to grow up fast, and this was one place kids could go to have a party and be safe,”
said Nipsey Hussle, the legendary rapper whose investment group S.C. Capitol Ventures helped finance the refurbishment of World on Wheels in 2017. The venue will stand as part of Nipsey’s legacy of uniting LA, and Bodega is honored to have been able to bring friends and family through.
