    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

    i dont think you took what i said how i ment it. i wasnt trying to promote graffiti as apart of hiphop culture i was just asking how much if any it is involved in it. like i said i got into graff through hiphop and all the kids i know into graff are really into hiphop. i guess kids took the wrong way. my bad jigga...bad question i guess. damn nigga stop trippin i aint bangin.
     
  8. IM NOT SAYING THAT GRAFFITI IS PART OF ANYTHING GRAFFITI IS ITS OWN THING. FUCK TRYING TO CONNECT EVERYTHING AND LABELING EVERYTHING SO EVERYBODY CAN UNDERSTAND IT .. CUZ IT AINT FOR EVERYBODY AND EVERYBODY AINT FOR IT... I MEAN HIP HOP... THAT LABEL HIP HOP/...... THATS AN ILLUSION

    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.
