What’s up, I write RIBS and I’m a Brooklyn, NYC native. I started writing in junior high in 1988, my nickname was already RIBS so it was an easy transition to use that as my tag. Like most writers I wanted to get my name up everywhere but once I saw a piece I knew that’s what I wanted to do. I bombed the streets with tags and fill-ins in the early 90’s but eventually I gravitated towards doing pieces. Once I started piecing I decided to create my own crew because we weren’t looking to ask other crews to be down. And that’s when Graffiti Art Kings = G.A.K. was born. Gouch and I have been friends for some years now, I don’t remember a specific date or time but it was amongst the people that we know in common…The graff community is very tight knit. We were familiar with each other’s work but it wasn’t until recent years that we started to collaborate. From the first project we worked on we realized our ideas and work ethic were similar in many ways. We have similar goals and ideas about the graffiti culture and the love that we have for it.
We have plans on continuing the short films and hope to be able to work on future documentaries that include other artists associated with ClassickNYC including myself.
“This was my part of the train battle at The Burning of Kingston 2 event in upstate NY. I was on the winning team both years. Hard to lose when Bio, Ces and Doves are your team mates lol. Doves did the character of Trump. ” -Ribs
