Fundraiser for Graffiti writer FORM, Sept. 5, 2014, Philadelphia, PA




Imagine walking down the street with ur wife and you see a guy you know. he says, ay man, "you need a ride home?" and u jump in to take the ride. he gets out to go into the store and the police pull up on the car, lights flashin. the police say that the car was just car jacked  a lil while ago and they want to take u AND your wife into custody!  say ur a real G, one that lives by the street code, so ur not saying anything, but ur looking at the guy thru the window of the store that got u in this mess like "FAM SAY SOMETHIN" and he's not saying NOTHING. he SLIDES OFF and you and ur wife gets taken into custody AND YOU STILL DONT SNITCH on the guy. this is what happened to our brother FORM, TUK.

he is STILL in custody. his wife was fortunately released and he is fighting for his life. the DA is out to get him because of his priors, but FORM gave that up years ago to be a family man and to live a life of ART. people dont know how deep this graffiti goes. for a lot of us, it SAVED OUR LIVES. please help us save his. the funds being raised are to his legal defense. please come out the event or make a donation below.

there will be performances by some of the hottest Philly music artists as well as some of the best known names in graffiti from Philly such as ENEM and DENSKE who featured in the graffiti classic 'INFAMY', and freight legends PRE and BRAZE. NJ heavy hitters such as RAIN and KASSO will be contributing art as well as a whole bunch of A list graff artists.  dont miss out. if ur in Philly or close, slide thru.

Bboy Salute: DJ Roc Raida, One Of The Best To Ever Do It

yesterday, my Facebook friend posted a pratice video of Roc Raida preparing for a battle with his partners. and it just reminded me how the art of DJing is different today. im not one of those guys that criticize... well, maybe i do... but, my point is, there was time when the dj was taken uber seriously, not like in these days n times when everybody wants to be one. is that a bad thing? i dont think so. i think it brings more of a spotlight on the art itself as more people realize the difference between the artists on the tables and those who are there to play records. theres even an art to playing records. if u've ever been at a jam that was dead with a dj playing music then u know what i mean. i mean the fact that hip hop started to congregate around the DJ should be enuff to solidify his position. but sadly, and do mean sadly these days, its all about the rappers. take a moment with me to herald a time when the DJ was a performer, an innovator, a showman, and the guy that kept us up on all the latest tunes. yes, they actually used to BREAK records, as in play them BEFORE they were hot on the radio. and this is a dj who was in that tradition. not just in that tradition, but ONE OF THE BEST TO EVER DO IT.

we fall out wit a salute to our fallen comrade.

Rest Well....
