    [quote][b]The block remains hot and not just for rappers. Legendary graffiti writer, COPE2, was recently nabbed by the NYPD's graffiti specialists, The Vandal Squad. The capture delighted NYPD brass and rightly so -- seeing as COPE2 has long been at the top of The Vandal Squad's Most Wanted list.

    COPE2, perhaps the most prolific artist of our time, was caught in the midst of a "train-bombing" campaign in the Bronx this past April. According to sources, he was in an unspecified Bronx train yard when halfway through the painting session the police raid ensued. COPE2 surrendered to police and allowed himself to be taken into custody.

    Authorities are preparing to prosecute to the fullest extent of the law and are even said to have told COPE2 "We're gonna throw the book at you".

    According to a fellow graffiti writer and longtime friend who asked to remain anonymous, COPE2 had been under surveillance by the graffiti cops for a long time. However, after the release of COPE's new book entitled "True Legend", the surveillance says the source, "definitely went up". True Legend, which comes signed by COPE2, boasts 272 pages of full color flicks and commentary from COPE2.

    True Legend has been getting rave reviews as the best graffiti book thus far, overshadowing other heavyweights like ESPO's The Art Of Getting Over and even a classic like "Spray Can Art".

    COPE2 was being held at the Bronx County Tombs but is now out on bail. There's been no word yet as to what he has been officially charged with.[/b][/quote]

    Figured it had to happen one day or another. Didn't they pick him up shortly after he released the Kings Destroy video?
