    who cares????

    fool without some of these guys you would not be painting freely as you are now. That is if you are painting. That is like saying who cares about DONDI or TAKI 183 or SEEN from NY and so on....you must be some toy. these are the guys that influenced the guys that probably influenced you. So without them you'd probabby be no one which you probably are. I have been painting for two decades fool and if I had never seen the guys I listed up I probably would not have been into graff.

    That is like anyone saying who cares about their pioneers, form breakers to rappes to punks to artists

    so not so venomous but more retarded.

    If you are old enough to have been painting for 2 decades then you must be a very slow individual.

    How can i "diss" old school writers?

    Oh man, like you give a fuck about old school writers. Sounds like you're just dropping names to establish "cred" as a "writer".

    To the 15 year old: bend over so i can lance your buttocks with a hot railroad spike.

    Yeah, you're so right....I don't care much about "old school" writers.....that makes me gay......100% gay. You got me....right out in the open.

    Eat my diarrheaa jackfuck

    Old school writers are lame lame lame

    name droppin' a list of kids that you may or may not know personally, makes for a pointless thread. i do appriciate past writers, its true without them none of use would be involved but i gotta agree with lens... i pay more attention to those who are next level. if you get stuck on the oldies (as great as they were) then you are a graff historian. if thats the case go fill out an application for the history channel.
    and from the begining this game has been about respecting the roots but facing forward and getting up.
    besides, graff is different now. the word king has lost its meaning, the way its just idley tossed around. and graff masters dont pick up apprentices to share styles with so much any more. the days of truely paying dues by racking or filling in for an established writer are over.
    names, what are they anymore? the graff scene is over saturated and is being run with a new set of rules. these days, just because someone has made a name in your city's recent past doesnt mean anyone has heard of them in my city. theres just not enough room on the bench for every name.

    i feel your point lens.
