I’ve decided to from time to time break out some oldies of mine. These pics are from my personal collection unless I say otherwise, and are now pretty old and rare. I’m happy to show that Love and show others the graffiti that inspired me as a kid growing up. I consider all these writers Kings, and heads that had an impact on LA graff. enjoy…

This first pic is Melrose Blvd in Hollywood done by KSN crew, it says DOPE, this piece became a battlefield with NYC’s JA dissing it, and then being dissed, and back and forth. A fresh piece by KSN though. 1991
