After he was robbed at Winter X Kazu decided to go to the beach instead of the local embassy. In tribute to his exodus from Aspen SNOWBOARDER has tweaked the lyrics to one of our favorite jams in his honor.

I’ve be on the run
Driving in the sun
Looking out for number one
California, here I come
Right back where I started from

Well, hustlers grab your guns
The shadow weighs a ton
Driving down the 101
California, here I come
Right back where I started from

California
Here we come
