Bio: Terry is a pro skateboarder from Long Beach, California known from “Viva La Bam”, “EA Skate” videogames and exploded in popularity due to his show on BET “Being Terry Kennedy”. He’s more commonly known as TK or by his less appropriate nickname “Compton A$$ Terry”. You may have also seen him in music videos such as Snoop Dogg’s “Drop it like it’s hot”.
On Being Terry Kennedy, TK gave us a glimpse of his day to day life, be it working on business deals, clowning around with his family or supporting the local community and giving kids a chance to live their dreams. He has a huge responsibility as a role model and is takes it seriously. Terry shows us that he is a positive, thoughtful, caring person who does not forget where he came from and this motivates him to give back and improve the future for others.
An up and coming entrepreneur, TK started his own company “Fly Society” offering specialized apparel. Founded 6 years ago in Long Beach, California, Fly Society is a brand launched by 3 lifelong friends: Terry Kennedy, Lyricist H.I.T, and Music Producer FuzzyFe. Gaining recognition and popularity from the movement they paved they capitalized on their momentum of the skateboarding and music cultures and soon after Fly Society clothing was launched. With the theme of International Jet-Setting, Fly Society embraces the good life.
Terry also has a pro model skate shoe with Supra and skates for multiple sponsors.
Don’t get confused by all the hype though, TK still kills it skating, all day.
Here’s an interesting fact, Terry Kennedy and friend Paul Rodriguez are so tight that Terry has said that he loves him like his own brother. Terry also confesses that he likes The Ramones and wears his socks inside out.Terry Kennedy Bio | Pro Skater by Skatessentials
