    SAC: What do you write?
    C45: Colt .45

    SAC: What crews do you push and what are their underlying meanings?
    C45: True Known Outlaws, Weed Heads, Loks On Dope, On The Run, Evil Mob, Drugs Money Sex and Bomb Squad.

    SAC: How did you come up with your name and what's the meaning behind it?
    C45: It kinda got given to me. I used to write a bunch of toy names when I was in elementary school. And at the time Mickeys was the best 40s that everyone drank. But I only got $5 allowance a week so if I got Colt .45 I could get 3 of them. And since Colt .45 is a beer favored by blacks and I hung out with Mexicans and whites, everyone would be like, “awww here comes Mr.Colt .45 with his mayate beer.” So at some point I decided fuck it I’ll write that, people call me that anyways. Plus I was obcessed with guns so it had that appeal too. And at first I wrote it with a K cause that was popular to do in the early 90’s in LA.

    SAC: When did you start and how did you get into the graff game?
    C45: Ever since I was a little kid my pops was interested in graff. Since the early to mid eighties. As I grew up, other people around where I lived were into it and by a certain age everyone was into it. That’s just how it was when I was growing up.

    SAC: What are your reasons behind doing graffiti? (i.e. fame, fun, bitches, etc.)
    C45: I’ve had my fill of all those things so at this point I just want to spread our culture to the next generation and every one past it. To show kids the right way to do shit by being involved directly. There are always gonna be new kids and we all gotta make sure they get schooled the right way so they don’t give us all a bad name. Also I got a reputation to defend and about a thousand friends to back up so I ain’t gonna be without work to do for awhile.

    SAC: Who or what are your influences in terms of where your style is derived from?
    C45: That’s a good one. Basically I try to do my shit how I saw shit being done when I was growing up in the late 80’s and early 90’s. Plus there’s always new fads to how shit is done now and friends now influence me a lot. There’s people who were doing shit back then that influenced me and people from back then and now who continue to influence me. To name names Cab is probably my biggest influence and also Porn, Jimer, Risky, Oiler, Pale, Fate, Gkae, Toomer, Guer, Adek, Resq; Chisme, Smash, Gsouth, Siner from Miami; Dash, Psycho from NYC

    SAC: If you had to choose one and only one, would it be Quality or Quantity and why?
    C45: Quantity. Duh. You can have all the quality in the world but if you got no quantity, ain’t no one gonna know who you are.

    SAC: What’s your best surface to paint?
    C45: I guess trains. Prolly extended height extended length flat auto part cars. Or those new white reefers if I can get a clean panel.

    SAC: How do you feel about the documentation of graffiti on the internet and the aspects involved with it such as internet fame?
    C45: Bitchmade. Sissy stuff man. It boggles the mind why stupid kids are living on the internet posting theirs and their buddies shit and waiting for feedback to stroke their egos. Get some self esteem and get over it.

    SAC: What is your definition of “All City”?
    C45: Someone who is known and has been seen up in all areas of the city. The internet kinda ruins that cause niggas can just post their shit and people see it even if they never really saw it in real life.

    "Respect your elders. Stay out of my spots. And go over each other." - COLT45

    SAC: Who are some of the most slept-on writers putting in work lately?
    C45: Good question. I always think MQ doesn’t get enough spotlight. Siner and Gsouth, Guer, Zes, Pysa, Eye, DZ, Adek, SI, Dr. Sex, Xrae, Nekst, Koze, Apes, Oze 108 there are a lot of people who haven’t got as much play as they deserve.

    SAC: Which brand of paint do you prefer using and why?
    C45: Rusto. It lasts.

    SAC: Rack or Buy?
    C45: A little of both.

    SAC: Any memorable or crazy missions you would like to share with us?
    C45: None.

    SAC: Best place(s) you’ve ever painted?
    C45: I’ve painted in a lot of different cities but nowhere is like home.

    SAC: What are your Top 5 Colors?
    C45: Rusto Gloss Black, Rusto Gloss white for trains, flats for bombing fillins, and any bright contrasting colors for pieces. Harbor, spa, leafy, berry, grape, wildflower, sunburst yellow, apple, seaside…

    SAC: Who are the Top 5 Bombers of all time?
    C45: Me of course…ha ha ha. No but really. MQ. Cap. Oiler. Chaka. Gkae.

    SAC: What has being a graf writer done for you so far?
    C45: Friends, fun, fame, girls, traveling, connections…

    SAC: What is your advice to the new jacks that want to get into the graf game?
    C45: Respect your elders. Stay out of my spots. And go over each other.

    SAC: Where do you see yourself in the game 15 years from now?
    C45: Ever heard of the energizer bunny. I can’t wait until im old enough that my kids and my grand kids can carry my paint and fill in my letters for me.

    SAC: Any thanks or shout-outs?
    C45: We been losing a lot of people lately… Over RIP last year in LA, and this year the lil homey Alot RIP in Miami and Soler RIP in Las Vegas. And we got a lot of people locked up right now too. And on a positive note good luck to Miss Lady La Loca DJ Tribe who’s career is blowing up. I hope the best for her.
