    (Q): Please state your name and the crew(s) you represent.
    Crook (A): CROOK MSG CREW

    Beyond Extreme (Q): When, where, and why did you get into the art form know as graffiti? In addition, how did you come up with your tag, and if you had another tag before the one you have now, what was it?
    Crook (A): I GOT INTO GRAFFITTI WATCHIN MY FRIENDS DO IT, AND JUS SEEIN IT ON THE STREETS... BUT THE PIECEING WAS NEVER TO INTERESTING TO ME.. IT WAS THE BOMBING... LIKE HOW DID HE DO THAT... HOW DID HE GET UP THERE? THEN WHEN I GOT MY COMPUTER IN 97 I WAS ON ALL THE GRAFF WEB SITES... THATS WHAT REALLY GOT ME... SEEIN THE WORLD WIDE INFLUENCE OF IT ALL... AND THE TAG "CROOK".. IN HIGHSCHOOL I USED TO DO ALOTA CRIMINAL SHIT.. BUT NO BIG GANGSTA SHIT... JUS STEALIN SHIT AND SELLIN IT AT SCHOOL.. SCAMIN STORES, CHANGING PRICES, DOIN RETURNS.. SOMEONE GAVE ME THE TAG AND CROOK, MY HOMEBOY NEPS DREW IT ON MY BAGPACK AND THATS WHAT I STUCK WITH...

    Beyond Extreme (Q): Who got you started and who do you look up to for a "role model"? Also, who do you think is running shit with respect to bombing, piecing, etc.?
    Crook (A): WHO GOT ME STARTED... THE LOCAL CATS IN MY NEIBORHOOD... CMK CREW.. ECKOE NEPS NABS ETC... THEY GOT ME STARTED.. BUT THEN I STARTED MEETIN PEOPLE.. THE FIRST 2 CATS I MET WERE " TAKE AND SMERK " THEY SHOWED ME ALOT... ABOUT A YEAR LATER I MET CROME. ONCE THAT HAPPENED IT WAS OVER.. AS FAR AS GRAFFITTI GOES.. CROME WAS MY ROLE MODEL... NO ONE HAS SINGLE HANDED DONE MORE SHIT THEM HIM, IN MY OPINION... HE DID THE SIDE OF THIS BUILDING IN CAROL CITY OFF THE 826... BIGGEST TAG IVE EVER SEEN... I WAS LIKE WHA DA FUCK??? ALL THE HIGHWAY SIGNS.. AND THE SHIT HE DID BY THE FT LAUDERDALE AIRPORT... HE STOOD OUT ALOT... ALSO FREEK WAS VERY CREATIVE.... I STILL THINK HES ONE OF MIAMIS BEST...

    Beyond Extreme (Q): Who are your favorite people to go painting with? Also, who are your favorite artists or favorite crews?
    Crook (A): TO GO PAINTING WITH.. NOBODY... I DONT REALLY LIKE PAINTING TO MUCH.. 2 REASONS... ITS BORING.. AND EVERYONE IN MY CREW IS ALOT BETTER THEN ME... IM A BOMBER.. STR8 UP.. MY FAVORITE ARTISTS... NO FAVORITE ARTISTS... FAVORITE BOMBERS... WELL OF COURSE CROME... IN MIAMI ANYWAYS... I REALLY LIKE SEVER'S SHIT IN ATLANTA.. FREEK HAS ALOTA COOL SHIT... DEED IS ANOTHER ONE.. I LIKE THAT BLOCKBUSTER ON THE 826.. AND THE OLD COPE BLOCK BUSTER OFF I 95.. THAT WAS HUGE...

    Beyond Extreme (Q): Aiight and now to the main thing that people want to know about. I'm sure you've heard this questions a million times, but what exactly happend when the police arrested you? Details...
    Crook (A): I'M GLAD U ASKED... WELL I WAS IN THE BATHROOM CUTTIN MY HAIR AROUND 11AM... CROME WAS WITH SEVER AND HENCE FROM ATLANTA AT THE MIAMI STADIUM PAINTING... AND I SHOULD HAV BEEN THERE TO... BUT I SLEPT IN.. ANYWAYS.. THE MAIN DOOR TO THE APARTMENT WAS UNLOCKED AND THE BATHROOM DOOR WAS LOCKED... AND I HAD THE RADIO ON FULL BLAST.. I STILL REMEBR THE CD I WAS LISTENING TO... REDMANS ALBUM DOC'S THE NAME JUS CAME OUT... I WAS BLASTIN IT... WELL I GUESS THE COPS KNOCKED ON THE DOOR.. NO ANSWER CUZ I DIDNT HEAR IT... SO THEY CAME IN... THAT WAS THE WHOLE CASE RIGHT THERE... NO SEARCH WARRENT... THEY KNOCKED ON THE BATHROOM DOOR... I OPENED IT THINKIN IT WAS CROME PISSED THAT I HAD THE RADIO SO LOUD... I OPEN IT UP AND ITS THE PORK CHOP PATROL... ANYWAYS THEY THEY WERE SAYIN WHERES CROOK, WHERES CROME??? RUNNIN THRU THE HOUSE OPENING UP DOORS AND ACTIN ALL CRAZY TRYIN TO SCARE ME... THEN THEY ASK ME IF I KNOW WHY THEY WERE HERE, I SAID NO.... THEN THEY ASKED ME IF I KNEW WHO ***** ****** (deleted by Beyond Extreme) WAS? I WAS LIKE NO.... I HAD NO IDEA WHAT THEY WERE TALKIN ABOUT... THEN THEY TELL ME THATS "TWICE"... THEY TOLD ME THAT ***** ****** (deleted by Beyond Extreme) PICKED MY NAME OUT OFF A PICTURE LINE UP SAYIN I PULLED A GUN ON HIM AT A PARTY.... THEN THEY SAY THERE HERE TO PICK ME UP FOR ATTEMPTED MURDER.... BUT IF I TELL THEM ABOUT THIS WHOLE GRAFFITTI THING, THEY WILL GET THE CHARGES DROPED..... I WAS AMAZED AT HOW STUPID THESE FUCKIN PIGS WERE..... THEY MUST HAVE THOUGHT I ACTUALLY KNEW TWICE, THATS WHEN I KNEW THEY HAD NO CLUE... NO SEARCH WARRENTS.... NO CASE... I TOLD THEM TO TAKE ME JAIL, THAT I HAD NO CLUE WHAT THEY WERE TALKIN ABOUT... I WAS JUS SPENDIN THE NIGHT AT A FREINDS HOUSE. THEY HAD ME THERE FOR HOURS.. PLAYIN GOOD COP BAD COP... SAYIN THEY HAVE ME ON CAMERA AND ALL THIS SHIT.. SO I WAS LIKE IF U GOT ME ON CAMERA AND U HAVE PEOPLE TO TESTIFY... THEN TAKE ME TO JAIL.... I REALIZE WHY I WAS WAITING SO LONG WHEN I CAME OUTSIDE.... EVERY FUCKING NEWS STATION IN MIAMI WAS THERE CHANNEL 4, 6, 7, 10. 33, 39, EVEN THE FUCKIN SPAINSH CHANNELS, BY THE WAY THEM TELEMUNDO MUTHAFUCKERS ARE A BUNCH OF ASSHOLES.... I WAS SHOCKED... LIKE I HAD NO FUCKING CLUE THAT THIS WAS SO BIG... I MEAN WE WERE ON THE NEWS 2 TIMES BEFORE I GOT ARRESTED, BUT I MEAN IT WAS CRAZY... I COULDNT BELIVE EVERY CHANNEL WAS THERE.... I STILL HAVE ALL THE TAPES, MY FRIENDS RECORDED IT ALL... ITS CRAZY WATCHIN IT ALL...

I MEAN DAM, I HAD A ONE MILLION DOLLAR BOND, THATS PRETTY IMPRESSIVE FOR SOME FUCKING GRAFFITTI....

    Beyond Extreme (Q): You went out to get fame, and you got it. Do you think that the media put it way out of proportion? Were you pissed about the cameras, or were you happy that it just gave you more fame?
    Crook (A): I WAS JUS SHOCKED... LIKE WHY THE FUCK DO THEY CARE... BUT SINCE I GOT OFF ALL THE CHARGES.. YEA IM GLAD THEY WERE THERE... IM IN NO WAY ONE OF THE BEST.... BUT THANKS TO MIAMIS DUMB ASS POLICE DEPARTMENT AND CRAZY ASS MEDIA... CROOK AND CROME ARE DEFINATLLY THE MOST FAMOUS... EXCUSE ME... "INFAMOUS"

    Beyond Extreme (Q): How did you and Crome get off the hook?
    Crook (A): VERY SIMPLE... NO SERACH WARRENT... I DIDNT THINK THAT TYPE OF SHIT STILL HAPPENED... BUT HEY... IM A FREE MAN! OH YEA... I WANNA GIVE A SHOUT OUT TO THE MIAMI POLICE DEPARTMENT.. GANG UNIT.. YALL REALLY HOOKED ME UP.. THANKS GUYS, YOUR THE BEST... AND ALL THE NEWS STATIONS... CHANNEL 4, 6, 7, 10, MIAMI HERALD, SUNSENTINAL... THEY MADE US HOUSE HOLD NAMES... THEY PUT ME IN YOUR MAMMA'S LIVING ROOM, ON HER TV SCREEN... THANKS GUYS!

    Beyond Extreme (Q): Are you painting again?
    Crook (A): IN THE LAST YEAR IVE PAINTED.... WENT BOMBING A FEW TIMES.. BUT I DONT LIVE IN MIAMI NOW... SO IT'S NO FUN.. I HAD MY OWN RADIO SHOW FOR THE LAST YEAR ON 95 LIVE IN ORLANDO.. THE OUTLET ON SATURDAYS FROM 3 TO 6 PM... ME AND MY BOY DJ REAMS..... WE HAD ONE OF THE HOTTEST HIP HOP SHOWS IN ORLANDO, UNDERGROUND RADIO IS THE BEST... NO RULES... BUT THE STATIONS UNDER NEW MANAGEMENT... NAME GOT CHAGED TO HOT96.... DONT KNOW IF I STILL HAVE A FUTURE ON THAT STATION.... ONLY TIME WILL TELL

    Beyond Extreme (Q): What do you like the most about graff and why? What do you have to say about the graff scene in Miami?
    Crook (A): WHAT I LIKE MOST ABOUT GRAFF... 3 THINGS.. AND 3 THINGS ONLY.... THE RUSH, THE FAME, AND THE PEOPLE U MEET....

    Beyond Extreme (Q): How has your style changed over the years? How has graff changed over the years?
    Crook (A): I WENT FROM BASICALLY HAVING NO STYLE, TO BEING ROOMATES WITH CROME... GO FIGURE

    Beyond Extreme (Q): What do your parents and friends (not into graff) think about your graffiti?
    Crook (A): GOOD QUESTIONS... NO ITS KINDA OLD NEWS... BUT ITS FUNNY, MY MOMS COOL WITH IT.. HER FAMOUS GRAFFITTI SON... SHE DONT LIKE IT BUT SHE DEALS WITH IT... MY FRIENDS THAT ARE NOT INTO GRAFFITTI THINK IM NUTS..... THEY SEE IT ALL OVER, ITS JUS THE SAME QUESTIONS OVER AND OVER... HOW DID U DO IT, HOW DID U GET AWAY WITH IT... HOW DO U GET UP THE HIGHWAY SIGNS... WHY DO U DO IT??? SAME SHIT, DIFFERENT TOLIET.....

    Beyond Extreme (Q): How has graff changed your life? Has it changed it in a positive or negative way?
    Crook (A): GRAFF CHANGEDMY LIFE MORE THEN ANYTHING IN MY LIFE.... IT GOT ME IN A LOT OF TROUBLE... AND MADE ME GROW UP QUICK.... I COULD HAVE BEEN IN SOME SERIOUS SHIT.... 7 MONTHS IN JAIL...U START TO THINK A LIL DIFFERENT.... ONE WORD OF ADVICE TO YOUNGER CATS GOIN OUT DOING GRAFFITTI... MOSTLY THE BOMBER'S... " EITHER GO ALL OUT,... OR DON'T GO OUT AT ALL "

    Beyond Extreme (Q): Do you feel that graff is vandalism or an art form that the cops, media, and almost everyone else just can't understand?
    Crook (A): ITS BOTH... AND IT DOESNT MATTER THE ARTISTIC VALUE OF THE PIECE... ITS JUS ITS LOCATION.... IF U SPRAY A DOT ON THE WALL OF YOUR OWN HOME... ITS YOUR ART... YOUR GRAFFITTI... BUT IF YOUR DO A BEAUTIFUL MASTERPIECE ON YOUR NEIBORS HOUSE, WITHOUT THERE PERMISSION... ITS VANDALISM... DOES THAT MAKE SENSE?

    Beyond Extreme (Q): Some people say that graff should have no part in the hip hop culture... what do u think?
    Crook (A): I DONT KNOW ANYONE LIKE THAT....

    Beyond Extreme (Q): What part of the world do you think is the best to paint in? Also, what part has thefreshest writers?
    Crook (A): BORN AND RASIED IN MIAMI.... SO I WOULD HAVE TO SAY MIAMI

    Beyond Extreme (Q): Please tell me what graffiti means to you, along with one word that describes it.
    Crook (A): WELL IVE SEEN THE WORD GRAFF BROKEN DOWN AS G.R.A.F.F., Gonna Risk All For Fame... THATS WHAT GRAFF MEANT TO ME IN ONE WORD..... HIGH.... CUZ IT GOT ME HIGH

    Beyond Extreme (Q): IS there anyone that you look forward to painting with, besides your homeboys.
    Crook (A): THERES ALOT OF GUYS IN MIAMI I ALWAYS WANTED TO MEET... WOULD HAVE LOVED TO BOMBED WITH... I HOPE CHIN, INCH, IS OUTA JAIL.... I HEARD HE GOT A PRISON SENTENCE FOR GRAFFITTI...THATS CRAZY... IT'S ALL GUY'S IN MIAMI ID LOVE TO MEET OR JUS GOIN BOMBING WITH ONE TIME....

    Beyond Extreme (Q): What's the craziest thing you have ever done (doesnt have to be related to graffiti) and what's the craziest spot that you have hit? How did you and Crome exactly hit that blockbuster that came out in the Miami Herald on the I-95 on the way to Ft. Lauderdale?
    Crook (A): AWWW.. THE BLOCKBUSTER ME AND CROME DID OFF I-95... THAT WAS MY FAVORITE.... BUT I CANT TELL U HOW I DID IT... I LOVE HEARIN THE RUMORS..... BUT I MEAN I USED TO DRIVE BY IT... SOMETIMES 2 AND 3 TIMES, AND BE LIKE HOLY SHIT.... WE DID IT.. WE DID IT.... I JUS WISH IT WAS UP LONGER.. I'D TRADE ALL MY TAGS I EVER PUT UP TO HAVE THAT RIDE ON THAT WALL. LONGER... IT'S JUS A MIND SHOCKER... LIKE HOW THE FUCK DID THEY DO THAT....

    Beyond Extreme (Q): Do you think that the more fame you get, the more people hate?
    Crook (A): OH YEA... PEOPLE THAT ARE INTO GRAFFITTI ARE THE HATERS... BUT I NEVER CARED ABOUT THEM.. I WANTED THERE MOM'S ATTENTION, AND THERE SISTERS ATTENTION... WRITERS DONT MISS NOTHING... YOU CAN PUT UP ONE TAG ON I 95.. AND I BET U ALMOST EVERY WRITER IN MIAMI WILL SEE IT.... BUT TRY THIS.... ASK YOUR MOM TO NAME 2 GRAFFITTI WRITERS NAMES FROM MIAMI.. ASK ANYONE THAT QUESTION... THATS NOT INTO GRAFFITTI... SEE WHAT THEY SAY..... I'D PUT MY MONEY ON CROOK AND CROME

    Beyond Extreme (Q): What do you think are the best things/spot to hit that run the longest without being buffed?
    Crook (A): WELL THERES BASIC RULES TO FOLLOW... NO OPEN BIZZNESS'ES... DONT COVER UP AND SIGN'S.... REAL WRITERS KNOW WHAT WILL RIDE FOR A FEW DAYS . OR HAVE A CHANCE AT A FEW WEEKS, MONTHS, YRS...... ME AND CROME TRYED SOMETHING THAT WORKED.. WE USED TO BOMB KENDALL AND GET BUFFED THE NEXT DAY... KENDALL SUCKS FOR BOMBING.... THEY GOT THE BUFF FOR REAL DOWN THERE... SO WE STARTED HITTIN THE CURBS.... EVERYWHERE.. THAT WAS DIFFERNT... OTHER WRITERS HAVE HIT THE CURBS... BUT NOT LIKE WE DID....

    Beyond Extreme (Q): Have you ever painted legally?? If so, do you enjoy painting legally or illegally more? Why?
    Crook (A): YEA IVE PAINTED LEAGLY 2 TIMES... FIRST TIME WITH MY BOY JEAR.. WE DID A LEGAL IN FT LAUDERDALE THATS STILL RUNNING TODAY... ITS ABOUT 3 YRS OLD NOW... AND ME AND CROME PAINTED UNDERGROUND CLOTHES ON OAKLAND PARK IN FT LAUDERDALE... I DONT LIKE THE LEGAL PAINTING... EXCEPT FOR THE FACT , YOU DONT HAV TO WORRY ABOUT GETTIN BUFFFED... WELL , THATS NOT EVEN TRUE.... DONT HAVE TO WORRY AS MUCH...

    Beyond Extreme (Q): Have you painted anywhere outside of where you live? Is so, how is the graff scenes in that area different from the scene where you live?
    Crook (A): IV'E PAINTED ORLANDO... AND THAT'S THE ONLY PLACE BESIDES SOUTH FLORIDA.... IF I WANTED TO .... I COULD RUN ORLANDO IN LIKE 3 NIGHTS... THERES NO GRAFF SCENE HERE AT ALL... I PERSONALLY THINK ALL THE WRITERS ARE WEAK.. NO SKILLS.. THERE WAS ONE GOOD WRITER.. RAELS.. BUT HE MOVED TO CALI....

    Beyond Extreme (Q): Do you have any interesting chase stories?
    Crook (A): I SHOULD WRITE A BOOK... OK, ONE STORY... ME AND CROME ARE ON A HEAVEN ON THE 826... LIKE RIGHT AROUND MALL OF THE AMERICAS AREA... BY ONE OF THE LAKES DOWN THERE... IM ON THE FRONT, CROMES ON THE BACK... I SEE A COP WAY WAY OFF IN THE DISTANCE WITH HIS LIGHTS ON.. SO I TELL CROME TO CHILL, AND I LAY DOWN ON THE FRONT OF THE SIGN.... NOW IM ABOUT TO PISS MY PANTS... CUZ I ALREADY HIT THE SIGN.... THE COPS PULLIN OVER A MOTORCYCLE.. THEY PULL OVER RIGHT DIRECTLY UNDER US... WITH HIS LIGHT ON AND EVERYTHING... WE WERE TRIPPIN YO.... BUT AS SOON AS THE COP GOT OUTA HIS CAR... THE FUCKING MOTORCYCLE TOOK OFF... THE COP JUMPED BACK IN HIS CAR AND HAULED ASS... I WATCHED THAT BIKE DO LIKE 180 DO THE 826.... THAT WAS TO CLOSE FOR COMFORT....

    Beyond Extreme (Q): What production do you feel is the "best of the best"? Is it legal or illegal?
    Crook (A): THE GRAFF ARMADA, IN FT LAUDERDALE... BANE CROME 5, DASK, PRISCO, SEGE, SEF, MSG I REALLY LIKED THAT ONE ALOT

    Beyond Extreme (Q): Do you like to listen to music while on bombing mission, be specific.
    Crook (A): OH GOD... CROME USED TO BRING THIS TAPE WITH US... THE MOVIE HEAT, THE SOUNDTRACK.... WE USED TO LISTEN TO THAT TAPE ALL THE TIME.... ITS A REALLY BUGGED OUT SOUND TRACK... NO WORDS LIKE WERID SOUNDS AND SHIT.... YOU FEEL LIKE U IN A MOVIE... LIKE 430 IN THE MORNING... NO CARS ON THE HIGHWAY... LISTEN TO THE HEAT SOUND TRACK SOME TIME.... CRAZY SHIT

    Beyond Extreme (Q): What do you have to say for females entering the graff game? Also, do you have any tips for the writers just coming into the graff scene?
    Crook (A): ONE TIP FOR THE FEMALE GRAFF WRITERS... GIVE THE GUYS LOTS A PUSSY.... AND FOR WRITERS JUS COMIN INTO THE GRAFF GAME..... THIS IS MY ONE WORD OF ADVICE..... " EITHER GO ALL OUT, OR DON'T GO OUT AT ALL"

    Beyond Extreme (Q): Do you think that graff is addicting? If so why? Also, what motivates you to do graff?
    Crook (A): GRAFF IS VERY ADDICTING.... GRAFF MAKES YOU A SOMEBODY IN A WORLD FULL OF NOBODYS... ITS A RUSH... ITS EXCITING.. PEOPLE LOOK UP TO YOU... PEOPLE WANNA KNOW ABOUT U.. GIRLS WANNA FUCK YOU... GUYS WANNA FUCK U UP.... ITS A REGUALR HOBBY... PEOPLE ASK ME WHY DO U DO THAT SHIT... I SAY WHAT DO U DO FOR FUN.... WHY DO U DO IT.... I HAVE THE SAME REASONS... I LIKE IT , ITS FUN.... WHAT MOTIVATES ME TO DO GRAFF.... OTHER WRITERS... WHEN I SEE THEM UP I JUS WANNA GO AND DO MORE..... WHEN ME AND CROME WERE BOMBING HEAVY, STV WERE DOIN IT TO... ZINK TWICE INFOE AND A FEW OTHERS... WE HAD A LIL GRAFF WAR GOIN ON... I LOVED THAT SHIT.... GOT US AMPED TO DO MORE SHIT... BIGGER SHIT... YOU KNOW... AND IM SURE THEY WERE BUGGING WHEN THEY SEEN US ON THE NEWS... I ACTUALLY MET INFOE IN DADE COUNTY JAIL..... WE TALKED ALL FUCKIN NIGHT ABOUT GRAFFITTI... THAT WAS ONE OF THE BEST NIGHTS SPENT IN JAIL FOR ME.....

    Beyond Extreme (Q): These days everyone is getting arrested for graffiti. Do u think that bombing is just too heated or do you just say "I dont give a f**k"? Do u think that its expanding or dieing out? And do you think in the long run that it's really worth it?
    Crook (A): YOU CANT JUS RUN AROUND WITH A SPRAY CAN NO MORE... I WOULD JUS SAY FUCK ALL THE TAGGIN... CONSINTRATE ON PULLIN OFF BIG SHIT... ITS WAY BETTER... TAKE YOUR TIME... FIND A DOPE SPOT... PLAN IT OUT.. AND PULL IT OFF... THATS HOW U GET NOTICED.... AND IF YOUR OVER 18.... BETTER WATCH IT... UNLESS U WANNA SPEND THE NIGHT IN THE ROACH MOTEL.. AKA DADE COUNTY JAIL

    Beyond Extreme (Q): Is it just me or are the police paying way too much attention to vandalism when they really should be trying to catch all the murderers, rapists, etc. out there? Expand on this.
    Crook (A): LOOK, MIAMI IS A TOURIST TOWN... MILLIONS AND MILLIONS OF DOLLARS COME FROM PEOPLE WHO DONT LIVE HERE... THERE COME HERE FOR A FEW DAYS TO BEAUTIFUL MIAMI... THEY DO NOT WANT GRAFFITI ALL OVER THE PLACE... SHOWS THAT THEY DONT HAVE CONTROL... ME AND CROME MADE IT HARD FOR ALL OTHER WRITERS IN MIAMI... BUT I'LL TELL YOU ONE THING... MIAMI WILL NEVER TOLERATE GRAFFITTI... SO WATCH YOURSELF OUT THERE.....

    Beyond Extreme (Q): Do you have any last words of wisdom for all the writers out there? Any shouts? Any "f**k you" comments to anyone out there? Any requests?
    Crook (A): TO ALL THE WRITER'S BEFORE ME AND AFTER ME.... DON'T STOP.... BE SMART... BE CREATIVE.... AND DON'T SLIP..... IT'S A LONG FALL....
