Chicago...where are you???

Recommended Posts

okay so i grew up in chicago all my life, until i moved here. so i go back to chicago for a christmas vacation...what the heck happened to the graf scene out there? there is absolutely nothing. either i went into the wrong neighborhoods or mayor daly is really cutting graf down. i noticed one AOM simple under train tracks, the next day it was buffed. so clue me in cuz i am planning another trip out there, but this time i am gonna bring some friends ;). plus, are there any hip hop stores that i can possibly talk to in selling my zine? i already had spoken to one hip hop store that is willing to sell it but they arent so prominent. i woudl really hate to say this but i was so hyped in seeing some graf out there and i was dissappointed in not seeing any.

Chicago got bufffed. I lived there when I was younger before and there was alot of graff and people were getting up but a few months ago I was there visisting relatives and I saw some graff but not like it used to be the amount of buffed spots I saw was crazy. Went bombing with a couple friends and withiin a week it was buffed. the buff is sick there.

there's a ferocious buff out there. they don't need property owners consent to take graff out. i've heard tunnels and trainlines are gone inside a week or two.

Daley has really taken over. A lot of writers pretty much fell off. I guess they don't think it's worth it. With the risk of getting caught and putting an hour into something to have it buffed in 2 days, it's not. I lived in SF the past 2 years and theres no comparison. 90% of the walls out there didn't get buffed the whole time I was there. I wouldn't say Chicago graffiti is dead. It definately is at turning point and if the right writers come along and a new mayor it could change. The few writers I do know switched to freights because theres so many yards and your shit won't get slammed.

so what happened to MUL? i know that they were pretty prominent out there for a long while. gosh that really does suck about chicago though. i didnt expect so much of a hard hand on graf out there since it isnt like new york or even sf. it was practically a culture shock to see that. in sf, you would not pass up a newspaper stqand without seeing a tag on it. but in chicago, almost everything is so damn clean. it made me so upset to see that. plus with all the spots i have seen. no wonder people are not taking any risks, and i dont blame them.

yea,the buff is terrible here,but it seems 2 me that only the nice lookin graff gets buffed quicker than the wack shit that "toys" put up,giving chicago a bad name 4 graff 4 ppl visiting only a while.

the chicago whiteout

 

I enjoyed 3 summer months in chi-rock. great pizza and a good mix of down to earth people but hardly the graffiti scene I anticipated. On the other hand, there were lots of chill layups and some yards.othe than that caught one highway spot , some mpowr rooftops, and a newa wall.

I was in Chicago on Saturday night at the Fireside Bowl, and didn't see much at all in that area. I wish I could've gotten around. I did get to eat 2 great vegetarian meals at The Chicago Vegetarian Diner and Soul Vegetarian. Caught a Grime and Bles scribe too...wooo hooooooo.

 

Chicago is too damn cold.

Welcome to Chicago....where things are not as they seem. Yeah Daley is a ducsh bag who has a buff squad that is probably the best and most funded in the nation. What can I say, the man knows how to run the city. There are a lot of dope writers here in the city, and most still paint. It seems it's all about the flicks and finding that spot that will ride, which is possible, I still have two street spots that are reaching the two year mark. You hated visiting here and not seeing graf, how do you think we feel. Shorty's are coming up and not knowing the history of Chicago graf cause they think last month is the history. Fuck Daley, cant wait till he dies like his fat fuck dad did. Graf will always be alive in Chicago, maybe not as strong as it use to be.

 

I miss riding the train in 94 and seeing the dope shit, 3XD, J4F, TMS, RGS, TDS, CMW, UAC, CAB, FAT, ASC, THC, Sivel, Diego, Digs, Sips, Skol, Rome, Pose, Fonzo, Porkchop, those Bean Characters, Trane, Kev, Page, Antck, and the burners. There actually use to be produstions on the lines that rode for years till the buff came through. I know there are countless others, but I'm slowly forgetting. Fuck Daley

Chicag is Hidin!

 

Chicago is pretty much on lock because of Daley. Daley hates graff wit a pasion. Nothing last longer then a day. Ifyour a lucky one and you shit rides longer then a week take that as a suprise. Sometimes shits buffed in less thn 5 hours. Alot of chill spots get buffed quick now a days. Some shits even watched by cops. We got mad writers in chicago, mad skills, and alot of potential, but as long as daleys in control, don't get ur hopes up. Southside of chicago, shit pimps alittle longer. Hes moving slowly to that side, so all southsiders should snap before the yuppies move in. The city got sued by a compay who spent mad mone on a permission wall which got buffed. Most of the writer, just want that flick, and nothing else matters. but theres a few writers now that are still rocken. One day, will have shit on lock, someone will have to murder that fool, so shit can be fun.
