Don't give me that buff crap, kids have all these resources that people didnt have back in the days. They can easily pick up a NY book with graff history in it or just come on the internet and see what it was like in the 90's 80's and before that as well. They truly just fucking suck. They also cant say they rock that blob shit cause its much hotter out now, its always been hot. The only difference is the penalties we face now.

 

yeah, but for the last ten years there hasnt been much to look at but throws... so that goes for... all the kids who were born in 1990... and ect... they got to see the left overs of the buff from people born in the 80's started writing in the mid 90s?... the buff has been an evolving as much as this(graffiti culture) and they run concurrent considering the relationship that CLEARLY exisits... so for those stylish throws and tags... toys cant even stare at it long enough to grasp the concept... style... there are many ny style writers out there... just not as live as 95!('cause it's not.) the man has been hip for a while now. so for the whole nyc is dead this and that... this is the birth of style... people come here to flex style... to make names...

you forgetting the age range ... those who are developing now... are 15.. so overwhelming them with that much just makes it worse.... they start jocking all over and it turns into scramble... fuck a book the interent should be enough to help that, but its an overwhelming thing to realize.

hella old heads stay preaching that style is as essential as getting up itself. those who say otherwise is on some bullshit.

 

new guys seeing dudes like adek and lewy up stay making them think they can get away with mediocre character throws, and those down syndrome version cross-breed cooe's and les' styles.

are you calling them mediocre ?" lewy and adek " cause if so, i d k man... they been deloping those styes for a while, adek with a newer ny flow and lewy with an older noodle like ny style... cause if you stand them next to people like, nekst healer Tlok cake87 ... ect ect... they have a total different style that isnt really that close to ny throws...

getting up its self is part of being a toy... and is step one... even if you stay at home and practiced and thought about your style before going out there... you still a toy... in the streets...

i've seen some of adek's other shit - lewy i'm not at all sure about - but i indeed do know that what adek usually has rocking doesn't speak on his abilities as a whole. if anything the uniqueness of the style in new york is more of a symbol of Adek thus he may uses it like that.

 

what i mean is that when most new dudes try to copy the stuff they see riding nowadays (particularly, Adek's and Lewy's signature throwups), it indeed can become of their full potential when it comes to style, because they see no reason to develop it any further because that's how they see some of the most of the up dudes' shit, their influences, as being, and see it as an overall acceptable way of carrying themselves. not knowing that Adek (and possibly lewy) just prefer to do their shit like that when they indeed have the ability to do a lot better.

 

to summarize: they probably could do it, but you're not seeing more than what there is to be seen.

i agree, kids have all the time in the world to sit and look at graff on the internet and analyze and take it apart for hours.

The way i feel is that alot of kids do not have the mental capacity to do such.

 

We live in a society purposefully geared towards constant instant gratification and stimulation.

I feel like the generations following ours will be increasingly underdeveloped mentally, at;east in america.

Also without some context all the flicks in the world dont really mean shit.
