    how hiphop is graffiti to you

    Discussion started by Chicken George - Aug 26, 2001

    i see alot of kids in here into graffiti that arnt really hiphop kids. to me graffiti is all into hiphop just becuase i got into graffiti through hiphop and iv alway associated graffiti with hiphop becuase of that.. how about you, how much of a role does hiphop play into your graff life?

    i listen to all kinds of music. i enjoy death metal a lot. right now im listening to piebald. and earlier i was looking for a dose one song while i copied a jets to brazil cd. then i went for a bike ride listening to old school hardcore as well as new school when my headphones broke so i came home and listened to aphex twin.

    in other wordsm i dont view graffiti as a culture or a part of hip hop culture anymore. its an art form. artists like different kinds of music. what does it mtter.

    peacer

    well let me put it this way, myself included, many writers today got into this shit because of the presupposed myth that graffiti is an "element" of hiphop. the media glorified it that way back in the day, and it still holds today. ask any kid if graffiti is hiphop he'll say "yeah!".

    i dont see whats so bad about, it creates more writers, and to last in this you have to be dedicated to it.. not many people stay toy forever.

    you like that.

    to me, since graffiti outdates hiphop and most of the writers i know arent "hiphoppers"
    i dont feel in anyway a part of the hiphop world. i do, however, like some hiphop, i just listen to alot more noise and death/black and regular metal and indie rock and noise rock and bluegrass and ambient and hardcore punk/techno and yadda yadda yadda....

    graffiti doesn't have shit to do with hip hop. graffiti is not a part of "hip hop culture", and it pisses me off when people try to promote it like that. i could care less about going to some stupid fuckin b-boy summit to paint on some big pieces of masonite or some shit. they wanna make graf look like a side show or something. and i don't agree that it's cool because it creates more writers because i'd rather see writers who are into graffiti just to do graffiti, not because they want to be part of some fairy tale 4 elements culture that doesn't even exist.
