Listen to this on repeat till your ears bleed....
This wall is wall 2 of the 2walls in 2days run. It was hella fun to paint with yall! The last 2 posts were directly from my sidekick, so apologies for the low rez (no pun intended) and lack of context. These are from the first day of painting, like Buder TMF/189says "it's like a party painting at this spot." So he came back and lit it up! I'll repost with the final shot with saucy megapixels...
This is Lil' Mohammed in front of my piece. His pops owns the store. This dude is a G, he just stood and watched us paint and guarded our gear/paint so the sketchy Haight St. types couldn't violate. I rocked a pager code with my "MT" since Buder repped 189 crew.
Buder has been painting O'looney's liquor store on Haight and Steiner in the SFC for years through the homies at Lower Hater who are across the street from the sto'. I've rocked with him on this wall a couple of times, but unfortunately wasn't able to come back the second and third nights in which a magical unicorn pegasus appeared my little pony steez. He also hit up the homies in Lower on the wall which I thought was a hot idea since the whole hood comes thru to say hey and spread love. Check back for the shot of the wall!

Wall 1 of 2walls in 2days... the corner of Valencia and Duboce in SF, on the side of Pizza Zone. This is phase 1, burners. We came back on day 2 after painting O'looneys in Lower Haight and hooked up the background. Again, apologies for the low rez imagery, shot of the finished wall to come soon!
above: Mike Giant was one of the first writers I met after I started writing for real. He was hella good to me and taught me "whatever you can draw, you can paint" which I now tell youngsters. He is duly recognized as a great artist and is blowin' the fuck up! He's got his own Sharpie model. Damn! That's official!
above: Keb, GM5 Killin' it, wait till you see the background laced up just right!
above: Buter, TMF So ill he's decrepid and falling off the wall... This man's hustle is flawless! Keep you eyes peeled, more to come fa sho!
above: Little dude infront of Meut, TDK's abreviated styles. He and his brother were like 10 and 11, just started writing and just got caught by their dad for having paint. Think this dude wrote "Toxic" haha.
above: Chief is always one of my favorite writers. Don't call it a come back!
above: SF O.G. Cuba... a worker asked, "no sketch?" to which he replied "I been doin' this for 30 years, I don't need one." Word!
above: Pi = 3.14159265 gets ill with scraps and borrowed paint.You've seen him up... pleez buhleev!

A BART policeman murdered a man on the platform of Fruitvale station in Oakland on New Years day. It was captured on cell phone video... the Town feels different to say the least.
BART should pay the ALL damages during protests in addition to whatever the family needs and then some... fuck that, the officers pay should automaticly go to the family for the rest of his life.
The family is suing for 25 million dollars.
What ever $ settlement associated with this murder should be LARGE ENOUGH to make BART feel the sting daily... and what are we to do? I don't feel safe on the train anymore as long as their police are armed. I've lived most of my life blocks from Fruitvale station and have been lined up and harrassed by the BART popo hella times coming to and from St. Elizabeth High just 2 blocks from Frutivale Station. It really could have been any of us. How will the damage to the community be repaired? In a way, this happened to all of us.
I know it's hard to be strategic in all this anger... but we must.
