What do you think about Marc Ecko?

  1. This guy is a fucking media whore raping our culture for profit.

  2. Just some guy who is out to make a buck.

  3. Nah, this guy really is Hip Hop, and represents the culture to its fullest.

    Yo I'm not claiming I know a lot about the guy, but from what I do know, I've come to realize that he's raping Hip Hop culture for what it is, and raping it for a profit. the video games, bullshit graffiti, all that crap, claiming to be Hip Hop but ironically doing it for a profit, rather than for what I understood it to originally stand for. Don't get me wrong, I understand we all gotta make a buck, but for christ's sake, at least dont use MY culture as a front for it. This fool never did graffiti AT ALL and claims to fucking tag air force one, which was a hoax. What a fucking joke. I dont know if you've heard the bullshit video he put out explaining it, but to me it's complete horse shit. I'm polling everyone on here, and PG, and other graff sites, and forwarding the results to his myspace 20 times a day until he realizes that hes a fucking phony and needs to stay the fuck away from Hip Hop all together. Post your thoughts, and your poll choice.

    Your culture? Bitch please, unless you painted trains in the early 70s, are in Rock Steady or Sugarhill gang, or are Grandwizzard Theodore hip-hop belongs to you as much as it belongs to the next guy.

    I read a magazine review recently that said this - "Is it good? Yes. Is it fun? No."

    I'm pissed off because I played the whole game not knowing that if you use triangle, you can do a piece in less than half the time. D'oh!

    It's like when I played The Getaway and beat it, then finally realized that you can heal at anytime of the game. D'oh!

    wouldnt that be fucked up if discussion of this type of thing got locked? or discussion in general, of any sort, on this website. it really does go against the logic of graffiti... to prevent us from saying something. im kind of going off on a tangent... something for a different area of 12oz, but ill just put the question out there in here anyways;

    why do we have moderators on a graffiti forum? now, i dont have anything against the mods... i respect them about as much as i could respect anyone ive never met, this isnt a personal attack on them in anyway, its about the concept of regulation of public space [EDIT; or for that matter Private space as well] . isnt graffiti all about 'yo dunny fuck you im going to write where i want to write and say what i want to say' blah blah blah. are we not a community of people, who are here to discuss and celebrate an illegal activity that is suppose to be about saying fuck the laws and the government and the system? yet in this online space we have rules and guidelines to follow, and figures who are here to enforce them.

    its just something ive always found ironic, personally.
