I know Biz personally, he was a straight up hustler / street rebel not really a writer, someone lol put a spray can in his hand and he locked down the whole city in one night, and took it from there. he was crazy like that. kool brother though if you know him.:lol:

I always liked those Charm characters that used to be up everywhere around '91-92. Also liked those Most 2-letter hollows around that time. (the MO with the bomb for the O)..

If anyone on here has any pics of Scum Hall or the TalleyRand building (in the back of the Industrial park in N.B.) please post them up. I would love to see anything from back then actually, most of the younger kids have no idea how ridiculously dope both those spots were in the 90's. The inside of the Fort had some good shit too before they built the sewage plant and the park around it..
