    :confused: OK, here it goes to all the old schoolrs, I want to know how many years does it take to become old school? Now if your old school and don't do shit for graffitti what gives you the right to still claim walls or names?
    This is not to bash any favorites, but to start a thread that gets a sense of whats inside an old school mind.
    I respect all the old school graff writers/artist that have contribute to the cause and struggle.

    Call me a lunatic, but I've thought about this.

    To me, you either are or you aren't. You don't grow into it. The period covered by "Old school" doesn't keep growing in relation to the culture as a whole, if it did the phrase wouldn't mean anything. I started writing seriously before some people on this board were born and I don't call myself "Old School." Why? I used the term myself back in the day to describe people that came before me, so how could I, just by growing older suddenly become one of those people? Basically, if you were aware of an "Old School" existing, then you aren't it.

    It's hard to define old school. I've been writing since the early eighties & consider myself old school. However I'm not Old School like them cats from the seventies. I guess it's all relative. Maybe it's a generation thing.

    Can you school the newbies on the history of your city from jump??
    Do you know the cats that you are talking about when you talk about those before you? Have you been writing actively for atleast four years??
    Then more than likely you are "old-school" to a certain degree..............;)

    i ama wearing Puma baskets with fat laces...
    i say the word fresh, even when not relating to greengrocers wears...
    and i know the first 3 lines from beat street and sometimes ponder the fact of whatever happened to Double K..
    hence all these factors conglomerate resulting in the fact that i am old school..... :p
