Recommended Posts

most of us know that boston has great hands, and we are also known for no negative styles in our pieces, but who does it best, i mean piecing. one name that comes to mind is target.

THE KING OF HELL appreciates your asking.

 

it depends on what style. TARGET is the man as far as class goes. his shit just has the right attitude. he never uses an outline, and paints faster than bruce lee can punch.

REACT is a much slept on writer with some of the illest shit under his belt.

Wombat painted good in his heyday.

 

ALERT is an all time favorite, and VAULT is untouchable. KURSE and ALONE both had amazing shit.

CHEAT and COAST too.

 

AVID and DRAK are both slept on. theres quite a few people who rock.

 

it just depends on your tastes.

question about boston...

 

If you can dye the river GREEN on St.Paddy's day,

why can't you dye it BLUE the rest of the year?

or do you like BROWN ?

 

(i like colour)

That's funny, and true. I've wondered for longer than I care to admit what it would be like if target actually bothered to do an outline (in pencil, not pen) and took his time on a wall.

KURSE DID....

 

Kurse did popsicles...anyone that is from Boston knows that!

Who did big eyeballs everywhere? who did question marks? who did pills?

 

KEM5? come on man...he's not even from Boston! does he even live here?

 

NET1 from Boston. Rocked shit. Bombed so fucking hard rocked fill-ins inside the Redline trains while it was running and telling people to move out of his way while he did them. 6'5 dude was large. didn't fuck around.

 

Boston is still fucked up with tags in the inner city...no no no not Newbury Street....no no no not Kenmore SQ.....no no no not on Huntington Ave..... there are a lot of places that are hit and needs to be hit harder in Boston.

Maybe if most of the fags that say they write go troup around places that you dont need to worry about the police...but you have to worry about dudes on the street.... Old School MASS was by far the illest bomber in Boston. At the time he was this little chubby white kid from J.P. that rocked tags from end to end of Boston and beyond.....on the illest streets in Boston. He stood out like a Candy Raver Fag in Dudly Sq. AND NO ONE FUCKED WITH HIM......The next perosn that bombed hard later on was Bandit. he got up about 6 other kids names plus his...he made it seem like him and his crew went out bombing.....but it was just him. This little nerding looking black kid.....wrecked streets soooo hard that Boston Gangs wanted to kill him from fucking there streets up.

 

Yeah years ago most of the writers in Boston were Black and hispanics....with ONLY a handful of white kids. If you wanted to be down you had to have BALLS!!! Stright up! now people have it way 2 easy in Boston......."hey man I want to be cool......I'm down dawg! I rock Graff"...."whatcha Write Man......." Dude....I rocked this canvas at this RAVE man......it was FREEEEEEESH DUN......"

Boston has a lot of ill writers that can burn....there are tons of toys here just like in any other city.......People talk a lot of shit behind peoples back.....all the time in Boston. But what makes it soooo much fun is that mostly all the shit talkers say nothing to anyone when they are face to face.

Thats Boston for you.

Peace

That's magazine graffiti. Boston isn't about magazine graffiti. I mean, there are writers that haven't written in 10 years that have more ups than he does. In my book that makes him a nonentity. Then again if you have one tag running you have more ups than he does...

whatajerk:

 

i think the scenario you are describing is not limited to boston, but it's a nation wide phenomena. i've lived in a lot of cities, and in many cases the earlier dudes who killed it were a good mixture of races, and they lived in the inner city while the majority of the current writers are whitebred suburban transplants. thats just the way graf is now. and i know the exact people you are speaking of when you say "dude i painted graf on this canvas at a rave" and the hell with them. they suck.

in terms of who i like for boston painters, well he isnt really from boston but boston gave him a name i would emphatically choose mune, there is no sweat dripping from this just an obvious amount of respect that his skill and time and most of all most important emotion sends out in his pieces, he *as i have said in other posts* gave me a new outlook on graffiti not so far back but back enough 93-95 that i didnt get from where i grew up, a feeling an emotion that your graffiti could be natural and not just fame/ups oriented it is an art and that is where my number one boston piecer props go to the kid who let me know *without knowing well now he does so that was redundant that it is okay to feel in graffiti.

 

*mune look in you old old black books for a kid tied all up in rope that is the one that did it that is what has stuck in my mind for about 8 yrs.

 

this isnt to say that their isnt a history of great boston piecers because a bunch of names come to mind, alert, vault, ta *when he isnt busy punching teeth out*, these days the young kids are dealing the cards and getting good quick bare's no negs are amazing the shit out of me, nefew and epik are quickly making names not only as bombers but as really good overall painters.

 

this could go on and on because i could break down who i like in tags or throws but this is piecing. and mune wins it in my little book.

Boston never really stuck me as a piecing town. That doesn't mean that there aren't guys that can piece, there are, but it isn't super important there. What makes dudes like Alert, Vault, Ryze etc great are their hands, simples, and spots, far more than what they can come off with on some six hour day spot. I guess Boston's kinda like Philly in that regard. And one reason why a lot of guys, while from Boston (or it was the nearest city to where they grew up) don't really fit the mold there.

who gives a shit what race you are.. You're talking about ravers one second and whites, hispanics, and blacks the next. Ravers aren't a race and they aren't all white. Not even half of them are white..of course they suck like Set One (Boston "writer", he showed me his sketchbook with all ewok pieces bit and said it was his name..) but anyways, fuck candy kids that paint and suck, but leave the race issue alone.

Set 1.....

 

Set One Bit Ewok? what are you talking about.....Set doesn't even paint anymore. hasn't painted for years. So unless your talking about another person that writes Set your wrong.

 

If yo uare talking about the same Set...I would LOVE to see you go up to him and tell him he bites.

?? SET? You met some fake SET. Like whatajerk said, SET OD hasn't painted in years. He isn't even in boston all that much anymore.

 

But it would be really funny to see someone talk that kind of smack to him.
