interview by LASENYC in FRANK151 mag

If you are ignorant to the time when graffiti on the New York subway system was blazing with burners, bombed with throw-ups and saturated with the tags of the legendary, go out and buy, borrow or steal a copy of Style Wars to gain a little insight into a time when the graffiti underworld was icon. My name is Lase, and I'm anxious to interview one of the many who played a role in the history of graffiti. The infamous, the mammoth, the legend, Cap One MPC.

 

Lase: How old were you when you first noticed Graff and who inspired you?

Cap: I was about ten years old when I first noticed Graff. Only big time on trains, Blade, Billy 167, Colt 1, and slip 3 inspired me.

Lase: You are famous for doing some massive bombing with your throwups, and going over other writers with them. Who out of those writers gave you the most war?

Cap: No one in particular. I was going over whole crews, like CIA, RTW, The Crazy Five, TFO and COD, among many others. Life was tough but I blasted my way to the top and kept it there long enough to make me happy.

Lase: I'm a big fan of your tag and throw-up. Who's tag and throw-up did you like?

Cap: I always enjoyed Smiley 149 tags, Billy 167, Stay High 149, and your tag was pretty cool too. As far as throw-ups, Comet, and AD of MPC had great throw-ups.

Lase: I remember hearing a lot of crazy stories about you. One of them was that you used to carry a sawed off shotgun under your coat. Is that true?

Cap: I'll get into that in my book.

Lase: Back in the day you were dogging a lot of people's pieces but you let a lot of them run. Who were those writers and why did you give them that respect?

Cap: Believe it or not, I got along with most writers and, respected many crews like Wild Style, Fab 5, TMT, TED Inc., MG and UA. I respect most art.

Lase: Most people think youíre a racist. What do you have to say about that?

Cap: That is incorrect. Every heritage contributes to this planet and I think that's a beautiful thing.

Lase: Who do you think had the best pieces, whether you went over them or not?

Cap: Crash, Lee, Skeme and Cos amongst many others and as far as the good pieces go, if it was a nice burner. I would stand in front of it and absorb its greatness before I became the last one to see it run!

Lase: Chillin with you now, you seem to be a collective person. Does the legendary beast still lurk inside?

Cap: There's no beast. Iím just from the street and took care of myself when I had to.

Lase: Who was the first person you saw going over other people's work before you dominated?

Cap: Comet! He went over everybody so bad that they never let any of his pieces run. That's why he just stuck to his throw-ups.

Lase: Who do you give props to as the all around king?

Cap: Zephyr. He did all pieces, bombed the insides, had five different names and kinged them all!

Lase: That is so sick, because I feel the same way! I guess thatís because the truth is the truth. A lot of people look at CAP as the ultimate destroyer, Henchman, Villian of Graffiti. Do you see yourself in that light?

Cap: I was a tough kid but nobody was that bad!

Lase: If you could go back in time and trade what you have now for what you had back then, would you?

Cap: Hell no! I have most of what was good from back then and so much more. My life's achievements consist of all my efforts, not just a moment of glory.

Lase: Who do you think was one of the most aggressive writers, other than yourself?

Cap: PJ was one of the most aggressive writers out there. He was a true all city king.

Lase: What is Cap currently doing with himself?

Cap: I'm networking with many artists on different projects. I'm currently writing a book on my memoirs and I also have a project that Iím working on in Europe.

Lase: Any shout outs?

Cap: Thanks to Tuff City Tattoos in the Bronx and ALIFE in Manhattan for keeping me close to new school artists and God bless all.

 

I have to admit while interviewing Cap, each question drifted off to another Graff recollection, but I didnít mind because I felt as if I was right there with him, reliving it again for the very first time.

Here we go, a CAPONE "snow piece."

hahah

 

C'mon, this guy was a bastard back in the day, and now he's a broke down dork who complains too much.

 

His style isn't nice enough to work the legal shit he's doing today. I don't want a canvas of his. I don't want a little train he made, and I only care enough about his "snow pieces" to laugh at them.

 

And if he's trying to ride his old school fame, ain't gonna work. He's famous for being a bastard. That's why he didn't come off in Subway Art. boo hoo.

I really can't appreciate Cap's shit, just because of the amount of disrespect he had toward alot of talented artists, and toward the game itself. I've never seen one thing from the guy that even came close to deserving my attention.

 

what a waste of perfectly good model trains too. I forget who, but someone in the FX video had hooked one of those things up ill! I think it was Ces... maybe POEM, I donno...
