St Paco, found this on the Complex web site. It is about ol rapp mags that have died over the years. Since, I was a rapp fan from 79-91ish, I decided to investigate browsed around a few and instantly laid eyes on the cover of 4080. I have forgotten about 4080, since my graffiti paraphernalia from 1994 and below was collected by Americas finest. I instantly remembered this cover, since I was present that day in San Fransisco, and the iconic photo of the Police car that was vandalised and was plastered in all sort of magazines. That was the nail in the coffin for "Market street yard." After a few glances of random covers and I went back to the 4080 section and then I had an "Oh shit moment" and realised my car was in the back ground with a 594 sticker on the front wind screen! I think the person standing next to my car on the driver side is me. Tonight I will go through my archives and post What I have from that day.

I finally had the opportunity to at the K.St yard in the East Village this past June. I was offered to judge a breaking battle for an event, so I asked if I could paint as well. They agreed. But when I was driving down to the event I got a call form my Mum and had to be home 6pm to watch Miles, my Mother had to leave earlier then expected.

After showing up late, I was expecting to get shafted and was preparing to paint on a little side wall, since the other artist were supposed to show up by 1pm. I showed up around 3pm and had the place to myself. So I took advantage of the situation and snagged the big wall in the court yard of the MMA gym.
I got the wall buffed and while the buff paint was drying I went across the street to grab some goodies and found they carried my favorite pop. A Saratoga Springs classic Stewart's! Now if I can only find the spring water out here.
Brisk finally showed up a half an hour later. He was gripping in a friendly manner, because I took the wall he wanted... hahaha early bird gets the worm even if you are late. He also mention he was grumpy and had jet lag from being in Hawaii...boo hoo!
I love this 94 paint! I highly recommend it. The nozzle system is set up in a way that you can make a line thick or thin by simply applying pressure on the nozzle. For example, To get a thin line less pressure for a thicker line apply more pressure.
The paint is very opaque it has a smooth and steady flow to the paint no mater how fast you are going, you will hit a line that is consistant with your stroke. I also like how it is a matte finish thats great for pictures you wont get any glare. The only down fall is the price...like all European paints. But with this piece I only used 4 cans of 94 and one MTN.
