Overview

After attending New York/New Wave at P.S. 1, I discovered Futura's subway car "Break," which opened my eyes to the realization that a highly creative subculture was flourishing underground in New York. This was my first profile of anyone in that subculture, and I based it on my favorite writer at the time, Futura 2000, who I felt had the talent to crossover into the art world. This article is a look at the graffiti aspect of hip hop right before it exploded into the mainstream.

I started out writing black comedy, but I'm best known as the first reporter to document hip hop and the instigator of the film Beat Street. I also founded the Cannabis Cup, organized the first 420 ceremonies outside of Marin County, and launched the hemp movement with Jack Herer while writing some landmark conspiracy articles.

Very interesting non-fiction essay about the subject of graffiti artists which shows another side to it, rather than just displaying positive, or negative slants upon it. Written in a fluent and entertaining manner, with a good flow.
