SOFLES – LIMITLESS – IRONLAK

Sofles just threw the gauntlet down for title of best writer on the planet with a little help from Ironlak films.

In the 5 minute long time-lapse video Sofles (+ Fintan Magee, Treas and Quench) paint the inside of an entire warehouse, multiple times. This shit must have taken months to do, and it’s executed flawlessly. There’s so many choice moments in the video, but a few highlights are the camera flipping upside down while he paints an upside down piece, and the huge throwie-wall. The best by far has to be the finale. Watch it to the end, you’ll be glad you did.

I quit graffiti. Seriously…

New York City graffiti landmark 5pointz got a fresh coat of buff, in preparation for the building’s eventual destruction.

From Ny.Curbed.Com…

5Pointz owners Jerry and David Wolkoff white-washed the beloved 5Pointz graffiti mecca, wiping away layers of street art in just a few hours. The Wolkoffs’ plan to demolish the buildings and replace them with apartment towers was approved by City Council in October, but artists and community members have been trying to save the building, pushing for a last-ditch landmarks designation.

As you all know, the Philippines has been hit by one of the strongest storms in history. We would like to take a moment to send out a prayer to all those that have been effected by Typhoon Haiyan.

The Strength in Numbers tee is made to symbolize pride in our culture and banding together when helping others in need. This tee will be for sale during the month of November. All of the proceeds from this tee will be donated to the Philippine Red Cross. #FILIPINOSTRENGTH


Scribble Jam 2014 Kickstarter

Mr. Dibbs just announced the Kickstarter project to bring Scribble Jam back for 2014.

There’s a lot of bullshit Kickstarters out there, but this aint one of em. For the youth who never got to experience a Scribble Jam, you definitely need to step up and put some dough down.

Not familiar with Scribble Jam? School yourself, herb.

Scribble Jam was co-founded in 1996 by “Fat” Nick Accurso and Jason Brunson, co-founders of a graffiti magazine called “Scribble”, and DJ Mr Dibbs, in the parking lot of a local nightclub. The following year’s event included MC, DJ, and breakdance battles for the first time and Scribble Jam began its reputation as “America’s Largest Hip-Hop Festival”, prioritizing the underground and serving as a positive outlet for non-commercial hip-hop.

The two-day event is known for its inclusion of all elements of Hip-Hop: MCing, B-boying, DJing, graffiti, and beat-boxing. Organizers have always lured star-class performers to the event by offering big prize awards to battle winners. You never knew who you were going to see at a show, and you might not even know who they were until a few months later. (Remember when Eminem lost to MC Juice & Rhymefest in the 1997 MC battles??)

In 2000, with the addition of new partners Kevin Beacham, Tony Heitz and DJ Pase Rock, the festival grew in popularity, as tens of thousands of hip hop fans flocked to its grounds in early August. At its height of popularity, Scribble Jam drew approximately 20,000 hip-hop fans to the Greater Cincinnati area.


GIANT talks meditation with Mass Appeal

For people who haven’t met GIANT and only know him through his graffiti, this video will probably be a bit of a shock. For those who have, this will fit.

Peep the video, then head over to Mass Appeal to read about Giant discussing all things raves, acid, health, Buddhism, and other things bigger than graffiti.
