not for nothing but how was he a graffiti innovator?...he didn't really do pieces..he caught some tags with sayings next to them but there were heads who did that before him...like "flint..for those who dare"...who would pen his tags with a number of phrases

 

as a painter his stuff was cool but don't throw out the term "innovator" just because you saw the movie and think he was the first...

no one said he was the first to do it.....inovatter yes......how many people were writting graffitti in 78? not very many...and about the major pieces and all that i dont think anyone really thought it was possible yet...this thread is so that we can pay tribute to samo not to talk shit and rag on him....

 

RIP KING SAMO....fuck the dumb

That's not really shit, back then you could just blast off...

And mad people were doing graffiti in '78, get a grip, this guy wasn't a writer.

 

RIP

 

but don't let the media pull the wool over your eyes or 20 years down the road people will be saying neckface was revolutionary and your kids will believe it.

wasnt a writter? he went out and wrote shit on walls. the key word in that last sentance is "wrote". isnt graffiti about the way you express yourself and the art and culture of hip hop and all that? well thats how he expressed him self by using catchy phrases and weird looking charectors. it may not be cool to you now but back then people might have thought wow thats really neat. so yes i do think he was a revolutionary graffitti artist because he was there in the begining of it all. so lets stop arguing about it in this thread this thread was started to say good things about samo not to talk shit to eachother so you think what you wanna think and ill think what i want too.................done!

i agree he was a writter...but revolutionary? eh i dont think so. his style was diffrent then most. but there were people like iz and dondi writting in the 70's in new york. i would think of dondi as more revolutionary than samo. no diss. rest in peace.

The reason he was a revolutionary was that he made people question the style of the stereotypical black artist. Not graff artist, gallery artist.

 

Also, if you read any interviews with him, he refuses to be classified as a writer.
