The real beginning of Los Angeles graffiti . The Era in Time .
What up ,For all the people who don't know I am SoonOne, yep the rumor's are false ,and so is the lie's , so from the dark must come out the light or for you hard head graffiti know it all's, the truth. I moved to LA in Oct,82 with my mom's and brother Freedom ,to the Mid Town section of LA ,the first thing I noticed was there was no graffiti, I mean not the kind that I was use to, the NY style it was a whole different game all together. I didn't no what it was until my cousin pulled my coat to it ,it was gang 101 you caught on quik, if you knew what was good for you ,between them and the police you alway's kept your lace's tied tight and this was the 80's. In this new jungle I still thrived and did what the fuck I wanna and that's get up, LA had the best's rack's I've ever seen in my life ,so paint was not a problem, finding somebody to go bombing with was but after I started hitting the street's with tag's when I first got out there. I was doing my piece's in alley's because it was hot with cop's and thug's, that was the first time I heard that term , maybe on tv, but not on the street's of NY . I'm dead ass serious,it's 2010 now but back then dude's didn't talk like that in NY. The gang shit didn't hit NY, not the kind of gang's I was use to hearing about in NY in the 70's, Black Spade's,Savage skill's, shit like that ,not the Crip's Or the Blood's but I was a little bad ass kid so I fit right in . I was doing graffiti when most of the so called legend's were in pamper's , you know these guy's couldn't even write there name's right back then your so called legend's had no can control to speak of, but they started the graffiti movement please all the real writer's from the 80's know what the fuck I was about and if not they was hating ass toy's watching me get up and hating like a mother fucker . I here these nigga's claiming that first shit please fool. , talking about how they were influenced by gang graffiti please these nigga's wouldn't even do block buster's scary ass nigga's. Was not writing gang graffiti at all , HA. HA . These nigga's are sick for even opening there mouth and saying some shit like that . believe that , look at there style back then writer's straight biting they asses off but I didn't teach them style , any nigga doing my swirl style are straight biter's them dude's never seen nothing like it in they life only in book's and on t.v. . My nigga Soul one and Dim was the first nigga's doing shit cause they was doing it with me then Legit ,Max,Mike,C Max got 25 to life and Mike,C got killed and these fake ass nigga's got the nerve to say they was putting in work get, the fuck out of here . They saying shit like that now 26 year's later and nigga's sucking up that bull shit . To all those who think I didn't school other writer's much, only a selected few , I school Legit , Risky , Rival , Dim , because they were around, back then there was not that much communication between writer's I never did the yard thing because I did illegal piece's on the street . And every nigga around me soaked up knowledge we was vandal's not role model's ! And all that shit in Dead man's alley that's my shit I was the only one doing piece's in that alley period I did it in that alley because I was alone , in till I got with other dude's like Soulone who was not a graffiti writer but he still went out piecing with me first then Dim and Legit dead man's alley was around the corner from my house on Longwood. I use to rack paint from Sear and Zodie's and go back there and practice my skill's and do what I loved graffiti, you got ta love it to spend your whole entire youth on it.
