Well then...OK, anyway, There's A couple of tagbangers where I live at, they run around hittin' up gas stations and really hot spots with huge, shitty script. "Smokes TDK" and "Debo TDK" I don't really know about them. I've seen them both around but never bothered to say anything. I don't know if they've ever hit up any real shit or what. If they have, I've never seen it.

My dead partner item 213 RIP was one of the first heads killed in the whole tagbanging scene.He was actually carved uo on his birthday outside my cousins house witha broken 40 bottle b y some cholos from lomas ,fuck I dont even remember when, 91 or so. Then came 213/310 beef and a few months around when ever was killed shit was in full swing.now its nationwide.If you guys are interested the history of that shit(and party crews,etc) are on fox 11 by chris blatchford,Im sure theres an internet archive to check it out.That moron blatchford still makes a living of exploiting what the the trends the ghetto kids in LA are into. Ive been in SouthCentral alleys a lot lately and thers a a few talented artistic gangsters,i see their styles and old english shit a lot.It makes me sad to know their talent will be wasted.Another tattoo artist in the pen.

YO U.S.A

Being an english writer and spent much time in the US i would like to say that gangbanging is a load of shit! Cowardly behaviour. If ya wanna be a man then deal with shit on ya own, dont involve ya whole fuckin family. How the fuck is ya grandma gonna getaway from an UZI in a lexus driveby! So take it from me, get ya paint stocked up and bomb or produce a nice piece or production but dont kill ya brothers!

THIS MAY BE DIRECTED TOWARDS THE OLDER CROWD, BUT DOES ANYONE REMEMBER AT THE HEIGHT OF THE "TAGBANGING" CRAZE HOW A FEW TV NEWS PROGRAM DID HUGE STORIES ON THIS TOPIC. THERE WAS THIS ONE SHOW CALLED "FRONT PAGE" THAT DID A STORY ON IT. THEY WENT TO PORTLAND AND INTERVIEWED THESE GUYS FROM A CREW CALLED "AF." THEY ACTUALLY HAD SOME SOME STYLE. A FEW YEARS LATER AMERICAS MOST WANTED DID A STORY ON IT TOO. THEY SHOWED SCORES OF PEOPLE HITTING UP BUSSES WHILE THEY WERE AT STOPLIGHTS. THEY WERE ACTUALLY SOME GOOD STORIES.

I got that on tape from a partner of mine.It also had some other shit with the Hex/Slick battle and the Fx and Cope video on 1 tape.Its the only graff video igot and I watch it 24/7.Those clowns were fucken morons,they had to take their asses to oregon cuz theyd of got smoked down here.Does that video show some vato spraying a Kamsters block letter wall with a fireextinguisher and then getting shot at,that was pretty funny.Tagbangin is stupid, but it is entertaining

YEAH, THERE WERE TWO SEPERATE STORIES. THE FIRST ONE IN L.A. AND THE OTHER IN PHOENIX, PORTLAND, AND NEW YORK. THE ONE IN L.A. HAD THE GUY YOU WERE TALKING ABOUT WITH THE EXTINGUISHER CROSSING OUT "KMIII." THOSE "AF" GUYS WERE REPPING SURENO/TORTILLA FLATS AS WELL (THEY ACTUALLY HAD SOME NICE HANDSTYLES). WHEN IT GOT TO NEW YORK IT TALKED ABOUT SOME GUY WRITTING "PHYN" WHO TRIED TO CATCH A THROW ON A MOVING TRAIN AND ENDED UP DYING. THE HIGHLIGHT SHOWED YES1 I BELIEVE HITTING A SUBWAY CAR.

I'M NOT TALKING ABOUT ALL THAT "BULLDOG....XIV"OR "SUR....X3" SHIT. I'M TALKING ABOUT HEADS WHO ONLY HAVE HANDSTYLES AND SOME PRETTY GOOD CAN CONTROL. THEY NEVER TRY TO PROGRESS IN THE ART OF TRUE GRAFFITI. THEY LIKE STARTING BEEF JUST LIKE THEY WERE A GANG...........SO SORRY IF YOU GOT CONFUSED

 

wait a sec so you're saying that tagging isn't "true graffiti"? that's funny because i've always thought that tagging and bombing were the realest aspect of graf without question. so you're not a real writer unless you paint some bullshit legal wall with some trashy looking wildstyle bullshit pieces and some crappy characters smoking joints? i'd much rather see some "tagbangers" with good hands than more of that crap. oh and by the way beef has been a part of graffiti (and human nature) since day one.

Yeah man... that guy was a lame shit. He was crossing Sentinal and Kamsters. I dont know how he didnt get killed. Anyhow, if you get a chance to watch that video of Front "Page Part 2". Watch the scene in Arizona where these guys are all hammered trying to drop knowledge. The first episode wasnt too bad either. It was mainly a re-wrap of all the fox 11 episodes. Dare Devil tagging was the best one.

it would be nice and dandy if we all painted out of love, but it's not the case. i dont agree with tagbaging, but when you step foot in the yard or the streets, the battle begins. some cats let power and longevity get to their heads and feel threatened by younger cats, and want to show them their dominance. its all part of the game and we've all got to deal with it.

I think alot of it has to do with finding an identity and forming an ego completely from graffitti.When I was a kid i knew a lot of guys who were into some gangster shit, and graffitti was their haven away from that lifestyle. Nowadays it seems like fools constantly try tie the 2 in together.Although i also feel gangs were an integral part of graffitti(in LA)so in some respectssome of graffitti's essence is violent,but then again what do i know

If you carry a fuckin strap, you better be prepared to pull the fuckin trigger. Tagbangers with guns shouldn't be considered writers, they should be considered gang bangers that are throwing up their fuckin gang graffiti.
