What do you write?


What crews do you represent?

My crew BTC, HT, GOD, and RHATS

When did you start writing ?

In 1991; just started bombing in 97. I was on probation.

For what?



I didn't do it. My friend did it. I was just there at the wrong time.

How come your friend …

Fuckin bastard; I got beef with him now.

For what?

Hmm, ‘cause he didn't confess and ‘cause we had a crew togeteher and he tried to play me.

What does that mean?

He tried to diss me with my own crew and he tried to tell me I can't push it no more

then from there we caught beef. I started it.

So now what's the process?

Process? What process ? That was a long time ago. I don't push it no more . ‘cause I got my own crew now.

What crew is that ?

The one I got, BTC.

What's that mean ?

Breaking Toys Chins and Bomb This City.

What writers influenced you?

HEFS from the Bronx and ME3.

Do you feel you have a lot of beef?

Oh hell yeah; with a bunch of toys that I’m not even gonna mention.

Do you piece?


Why not?

I’m not into it

How do you feel about old school writers?

I don't give a fuck about them; they don't really concern me..

Do you rack?


How do you feel about bombers who buy their paint?

That's their problem.

If there's a spot that you want and there's a piece there would you go over it?

If I never heard of them, yeah I'll go over it,  and if I got beef with a person that does pieces - I feel sorry for them.

Whats the ups and downs of graff?

Catching beef, jealous niggas and respect.

Rest in peace Timothy Falzone Santiago.
