hipsters yes

 

Quoted for truth.

 

It really has nothing to do with what you listen to, hip hop doesn't make you a better writer, and metal and punk don't make you worse. If you don't get it, you don't get. You're going to be bad regardless of what you listen to. If anything it's all the crossover art fag hipsters. But mostly it's less graffiti and more "street art."

I saw graff as a child and knew i wanted to get into it way before i ever got into hip hop. Hip hop was definitely my gateway into graff though.

 

Most of my friends and that writers arent even into hip hop. I know writers who are straight metal heads, punk rockers, indie kids and even a hipster kid. They kill shit! They love graff. Each of them brings something new to the table.

Maybe 10% of the writers I know are into hip-hop...the vast majority I've met via the punk scene.

 

I don't think music has anything to do with quality...some people are lazier since the internet became their main source of inspiration. On the flip side of that, I see a lot of styles being mixed with varying results.

 

Commitment and talent have a lot more of an impact on me than skill. Anyone can rip ideas off, practice and learn how to fake it, but they're never going to stand out.

if you aint trying to be fresh you are not doing my type of graffiti. not fixing your outlines when you fuck up and force fields that dont fit snuggly on your outline for the sake of making your shit trendy. im not talking about toys here im taking about people who have shown to be able to be fresh in the past but are choosing the path that is becoming accepted as new and current. to me thats a cop out so you can get out of dodge quicker. skinny tip bombing because you cant rack enough paint. anyways thats what is fucking up graff.

don't associate hipsters and scene kids with punks and ..thanks but yea uh I think there are people who are in it for a minute and don't know the history about style and thats why graff is going down the tubes I know dudes who listen to straight up reggae and are dope at graff. Its not about the music you listen to, it's about the work and dedication, and time you put in like anything else, thats just my 2 cents.
