growing up in brooklyn ny i saw graffiti often but what actually had an impact on my was this crazy piece i saw on the way to school in the fourth grade everyday. i didnt know what it said but i thought it looked sick. i asked my bro what it said and he didnt know either. remained a mystery but between that and my brother i decided to start writing. i thank the dude that did that he changed my life.

Bronx Highway Graffiti in the 90's always caught my eye on the way to see family. Then in the later 90's Bran dym came to my city and killed it.

So I wrote my initials for the longest time until i met another writer....and one thing led to another and the rest is history

Back in like 03' This dude named TURTL had Detroit on fire for like 18 months. That dude was up every where and he used to draw these turtles the same one everytime. People took notice media coverage, huge rewards, a documentary. He was like Motown's Bansky. Thats when I got in to writing.

When I was about 5 years old and I would ride the bus around with my mom to places. We would sometimes sit in the back and I would be there peeling and looking at the dried up acrylic tags on the seat. I remember seeing them in pink and yellow and plenty of other times fat Pilot tags on them, as well. Those brown Metro seats.........
