    The reason why I graff is mainly for the adrenaline rush and plus all my friends know what I write so if we ever lose touch and they see my work they can think of me.

    i think i first noticed graffitti in about...... 95. this guy tens was killing shit and i was like 11 years old or something and i was like damn i wanna do that. and from there i just copied his shit and later on i got the name ape 2 from my cousin who used to write ape 1 RIP. and from there i went bombing made friends had beefs got my ass kicked and oncei was in the game (really in the game) it was impossible to get out, almost like a drug addiction.

    so all i got to say is thati love art, hip hop and graffitti

    APE 2 FTD QUESTION MARK CREW! PEACE!

    im re-posting this because slobs topic got closed.........


    I sketch to push my artistic ability to the fullest, but.... i feel its only half the battle and incomplete till its up huge on a wall

    i paint because thats where the shits real you know what im sayin, the HECKTIC MISSIONS, hittin every grimey surface, runnin and rushin, makin it drippy as fuck and basicly givin a big "FUCK YOU" to the establishment

    but then i also love chillin at a safe spot and spendin hours on a peice ya know, makin it perfect and proving my shit can run wit the best of em, meetin writeres from all over the place, commin together an finding a common element, respecting and collaborating with all kinds of crazy styles an jus the whole underground culture is why i risk my ass an will continue to do so through the good the bad an the ugly it doesnt matter.

    Its about having passion in life and stickin with it, like the other day i went to a theater play and theres this fuckin 95 year old guy wailing on the drums like hes 25 again. i shook his hand after the show and told him your my idol man, thats true passion an i pray to god im still doing what i love at your age.

    and ive always said, im only truely happy when i got my girl by my side and a can of ghetto paint in my hand, thats the way it is now and god willing thats the way it will be till the day i die.

    altough most of those apply to me, id say that the biggest would have to be purpose.

    if i had something better to do with my life id be doing it....

    i guess my response has changed from when i answered this question 6 mounths ago
