    how many REAL writers

    Discussion started by Jucerock - Jan 26, 2002

    I wanted to bust sort of a poll type thing. The question is, even if you get up, are u a real writer if you dont rack? Personally, to me, if you dont rack your cans youre a straight up poser. Point blank, to me you have to rack to be real. Just wanted to get some thoughts.:king:

    Being real has nothing to do with how you get your paint or whatever. Being "REAL" is dedicating many sleepless nights to make that piece/bomb/whatever come out dope. of course this may not apply to any of you but it's my opinion... ehh... :D

    i tried to think about this....

    if you rack,you're just a thief..
    if you carry a pen in your pocket and start to panic when you lose your scriber,thats a real writer to me...i carry two different sized pens on me always..i scribe on airplanes and hit my crew up in every bathroom..i'll even sneek to the ladies restroom to get up...

    if you take long greyhound trips just to get up in another area,if you are willing to miss a flight from sanfran to sandeigo just to hit up some trains and toke on a blunt...you are a real writer in my book..

    know what um sayin son! keep it real son!

    i havent racked any paint since i was in high school (over 10 years ago).
    bad enough im still writing, but racking, getting busted for that could get in the way of painting. sorry i cant be cool enough to rack paint anymore. i wish i was though.

    In the ideal situation, graffiti should be entirely free...But as you get older, priorties change...I use to shoplift all the time at a younger age, Im willing to get busted for graffiti, not for shoplifting...Just me...Many, Many, would disagree...Simple as that...Many old school NYC heads would certainly disagree...If I had the old shoplifter in me, id do it...But I dont...Ah, oh well ya know....
