i'm a graffiti writer. a real one. i went to the top of the game in Philly and am considered one of the all time best here. i didnt say that to prop myself. only to say that when i speak on alternative culture, i come from an informed place. a lot of the graff writers were also avid skaters and the worlds overlapped seamlessly. now in North Philly, you have to understand that a lot of the graff writers during a certain period were all street dudes. if u met a drug dealer on the street and asked him his name, he'd tell you the name he tagged on the walls. the corners and the drug crews were also well know graff writers. ATT, FAN 1, TUK(where i'm from), DSP, OKC, all that. i mean major shit. my man Chicago (bless the dead) was a part of an organization that grossed a million dollars a month, on 3rd n Diamond St. but he was an all city graff writer, subway tunnels and all. this North Philly life is special, mayn.
this is the same dude who was wit Katie Couric claimin gangsta last year. "I'm a gangsta Ms. Katie!" its all about drugs n guns. this year, he's on skateboards and wearin skate clothes. where's the soo woo and all that? i remember this one dude who i was on federal hold in the county with from LA had told me what that LA is like. he was tellin me at that time ('94) that the gang shit wasnt like the old school shit, n that in some instances, tho it was rare then, that the colors blended. then when i saw 40 Glocc gettin at Wayne talkin bout 'look at this nigga stirrin up shit', n he went on to say how they worked hard out there to bring that bangin on colors shit to a minimum, (maybe my man Tony Grands can speak on it), i understand what he meant, cause i heard a real LA g speak on it years earlier. (shout out my man. cant remember his name. we used to call him LA. what else?) and when Wayne was confronted by a Crip, ready to bang, he stayed in the truck. i know yall saw the video on YouTube. POSER. they always fuckin up shit this way.
sell you shit that YOU should be sellin to them?
