Kareem Holds Up The Infamous City Star Pendant.Alright, now...It's absolutely official. Kareem Campbell's City Stars Skateboards is back. In case you don't know, City Stars was a board brand that was an extension of the World Industries camp about 6 or 7 years back. Under legendary pro and founder, Kareem Campbell's watchful eye, he recruited some of the freshest, youngest talent of the time. Household name's like Paul Rodriguez, Devine Calloway, Kevin "Spanky" Long and Bryan Herman all got their start on City Stars.

Some of Kareem's New City Stars Boards.After some riders parted ways and persued other endeavors, City Stars was left to sort of fade away into obscurity. Over the last few months Kareem has surfaced once again into the skate spotlight with rumors of an Axion Footwear revival as well as the release of his signature truck on Destructo. Now, Finesse Skateboards (who had recently dropped a limited edition line of Kareem decks and will continue to do so in limited numbers) have joined up with Mr. Campbell to relaunch the City Stars line. Under the umbrella distribution company called Pure, City Stars will live alongside, Finesse and Premium Skateboards.
