    FC IBM renegades of funk

    Discussion started by niseNSF - Jul 29, 2002

    yo, first off, credit to Paint My Face..i never jack pictures from sites, but i just saw this and had to share, in case some of yall missed this. granted, im biases cause i think FC is the best crew on earth, but even if you dont share my respect for dero west and company, you gotta appreciate how fresh this is. the pieces are classic, crisp, and the letters exude style, while retaining real letterforms (unlike a lot of this new graff..). and as a fan of bombin, i usually cant stand "productions"...especially cluttered, gaudy ones....but the idea, layout and execution of this one is fucking amazing. simple stars, clean lettering, and nice use of three icons with comparable contributions to society, portrayed well. seriously, it doesnt get much better than this in my mind.

    SOME GUY ACTUALLY POSTED THESE PICTURES EARLIER IN THE YEAR OFF HIS SITE. FC HAS DEFINITELY BEEN ROCKING IT FOR A LONG TIME. AS YOU SAID, DERO, WEST, KAWS, AND EVEN OTHERS LIKE BRUE, TOTEM.

    amen...theres some others too..but im not talking.

    as for tupac...i dont think peter tosh fits in the same category as che, or with tupac...theyre all kind of in their own class..if anything, che doesnt belong...but in another way, theyre all sort of focus points for certain scenes...and i think, in that way, it works. in general, i cant stan photo-realsim in graff...but here, im not mad at it. i think without the 3, it wouldnt be as fresh as it is....but who knows. its reminds me of when ces did that FX hendrix thing back in the mid-90s...its not that i even love jimi myself, but it was nice to not see another rapper dedication....i guess here its the addition of tosh that really makes me dig it. id really like to see something like biafra or HR or like lee iacocca or some shit. that would be hot. like the CEOs of corporate america....kinda next level.

    I'm not trying to jump on a bandwagon of sudden appreciation or anything, but I saw this production once myself and thought it was some real high-quality shit.

    If a couple of heads are going to take the time to sit and paint a legal wall for a few hours, or days, then they should consider all the elements that make a wall come off: dope pieces, a consistent color scheme that draws attention to the right areas, layout, placement, coordinating of styles, creativity, etc.
    These cats obviously got on some planning shit and made the effort worthwhile.

    I've noticed some of those NY-stylish Euro writers doing some seriously on-point legals in recent years. Wish I had flicks.

    OK THE WALL IS NICE THERE SEEMS TO BE SOME INTELEGENT FEEDBACK ON THIS POST SO WHO TOOK IT?AND GIVE YOUR REASONS!
    HERES MY OPINION(not that it realy matters but...) i like the teal peice it has good movement in the E and A but the pump off the T that goes straight down and just disapears dont kick..i like what dubs did with the dark blue to show the overlaps although it s been done..view also has a pump that comes off the arrow and lands in the middle of the V pointlessly?theres another one coming off the W going straight down aimlessly? so overall i gotta say teal took this one...its just my opinion im in no way dissing any of them....give your feedback....
