    Don't sweat it.

    Taxer,
    You and I both know this is something of which you need not worry. In fact, I spotted you over the weekend. Your numbers are impressive.

    ;)

    if you're seriously worrying about graffiti numbers, then you have some head issues to deal with...mostly the fact that you don't have anything better to do with your time.....being a fr8 king has a lot less to do with numbers than it does with style, dedication and longevity.

    well if they arent around in 10 years then they arent kings.... that word is used too
    loosely these days id say there is only about 10 dudes out there that can say
    they are king......but u guys give credit to anyone on the internet so it wouldnt surprise me
    if u people think there are 100's of freight kings.... morons

    ive heard rumors in the 500's....but thats the whole thing...unless you meet someone like mber in person, its really hard to gauge how many freights someone like him puts out a year...he, himself, probably doesnt even know how many he puts up in a year...on GTV8 sien5 says he tries to do at least 50 a year....which isnt really that much. i think the main thing is just do as many as you can a year for about 3 or 4 years or maybe even 5 or 6 years....thats what i plan to do at least....

    along with what sector said...

    the thing about sien5 is that he is probably in his 30's and has been doing freights consistantly for 10+ years.

    this topic is very stupid and i am somewhat ashamed of myself for participating in it, but whatever. Simply put, quantity does not make you a king. As was mentioned, people like sien5 as well as many other "fr8 kings" do not have nearly as many numbers as newjacks like onorok or worms...these guys have serious quantity going on, but they are still young bucks in the game. The real kings have been at it consistently for many many years and the vast majority of you internet ballhuggers would be surprised to know that their entire careers contain far fewer trains than all the new kids who make it their life mission to rock 500 a year...shit, some of the kings barely have hit the 500 mark of burners, but that doesn't take away from the fact that they put in work, they have style and they have more dedication than most (aside from the fact that they were rocking steel while you were still in litte league). That's what makes them kings, not adhering to some stupid numbers game that everyone seems to think is so damn important. Shit, you can do 2 fucking fr8s a year and still be famous because of this whole internet shit. It boggles my mind how wrapped up everyone is in this...

    i used to think a number meant you were a king, until i saw what folks were countin as freights. if i spent as much time doing 5 trains a night then puttin in a shit load of time on one masterpiece, i'd have a thousand + freights. my point is that a king's number isn't important. this whole freight trend thing has been destroying the lines by kids using a street mentality on the frieghts. "hey, let's go bomb freights!" what the fuck is this? they're not to be bombed! freights are rolling canvas' not freeway overpasses or billboards. they should be treated with respect. but, only someone who has been around as long as the current day kings would understand this respect. those writers who pretend to be freight gangsters and fuck up the lines are just toys trying to bully artists and are hurting graff as we love it. the other day i saw a poem/zen/king 157 end to end with throw ups over it. the writers that bombed over it were pretty "up" writers that i have now lost total respect for. i'm going to paint trains forever, but its frustrating to have "toys", cause that's what they are, ruining the legacy started by crews like bfk, rtm, and whoever began puttin it down. i just can't wait till these guys fall off or go down, cause they will.

    by the way thank you coffin cheater, and thank you sector for throwing out numbers. and its not a stupid topic and thats why you did participate.
    im not stupid i understand the quality over the quantity thing, its just commen sense. my question was about names and numbers, maybe i didnt make that clear. tell me who you think frate kings are and some numbers. some cats are known for e2e's, some kids are known for strate letters with crazy fill designs, and some kids are known for inernet and magazines. i wanted to discuss freight kings. real ones.
