    You guys talk shit about not only obey, but anyone else who becomes famous, why? isen't that what your trying to do by putting your names on walls? "free canvas so people can see my work!11", oh right, your all hardcore street bombers, your not in it for fame.
    The guy's making money and getting recognized for it, wheat pasting is different then using spray paint so the way I see it, this whole biting thing isen't really a HUGE factor to it, he's using imagery most people can associate with.

    From what I've seen, he has paid his dues(as you kids say) he didn't just bust out on the scene and get famous.
    Again, if you complain that he got famous in this "game", then look at yourself and the reasons why you do it.

    They're doing the same fucking thing with K'naan on MTV. I hate that shit. He used to rap about really deep shit. They better not turn him into a god damn puppet like everyone else.

    Finally, thank you, after having lurked this thread for long enough I finally found a post that had any thought put into it.

    People just think that he did the clothing line and sold his work and bam he's famous.
    No......
    Way before that he was doing a fuckload of work.

    People are just hating because to them he's a sellout but we all know we'd do the same in his position.

    Once graffiti becomes about money you can't really complain.

    Bullshit, yes I can, graffiti is made to be on the streets, not on some goddamn corporate company's t-shirt line. Do you really want what happened to skateboarding to happen to graff?

    Doesn't really fucking matter. People made money, that's how things work.

    If I'm going to to be spending all my fucking life doing graffiti I at least want some fucking money.

    I'm 110% sure that if someone wanted to buy a canvas piece of yours you'd sell it.

    I don't care if everyone is making money off graff, I don't make money with my graff, I just lick balls at a graff shop and make decent money.
