Kareem Campbell (born November 14, 1973) is a professional skateboarder. He is known for popularizing the skateboard trick "The Ghetto Bird" which is a nollie hardflip late 180°. He was born in Harlem, New York. Throughout his career Kareem has been sponsored by World Industries, Axion Shoes, Nixon Watches, Alphanumeric Clothing and more.
Kareem Campbell was an innovative professional skateboarder in the 1990s. He was featured in the World Industries videos "New World Order", "20 Shot Sequence", and "Trilogy", which are regarded as classics to many skateboarders. He has been called the godfather of smooth street style. He eventually went on to spawn another company of his own under the Dwindle Distribution umbrella, though he continued to ride for World Industries. He also helped found Axion Shoes. After Menace, he went on to create City Stars Skateboards also under the same Dwindle Distribution umbrella. He still operates City Star Skateboards to this day.
Campbell was already a well-known figure in the skateboarding scene, but rose to mainstream fame in the late-1990s after he was featured as a playable character in the Tony Hawk's Pro Skater video game series.
