No offesnse but the most "art" I've seen out of a b/c tag is a picture of a tree from TTP and hand signs. They have a brim sign across the streeet from USC and then some b sign in from of BPSB in J's
Hoovers you used to hit the "HOOVER" Hand sign on the wall :shock:

I saw em hit in the early/mid 90's down Vermont....

The few I see were clean, good quality hit ups 8)

I thought that was Original on their part...

I've alse the TREE TOPS hit....

I'll give you Hoover.... TTP is kinda a stretch, original but not as high quality

If you liked the Hoover stuff a couple BPS did the same type of stuff.

Still, some of the Mexican ones were on the level of pure graf art tagging crews. NSPX3 have some real crazy stuff, but then you couldn't really tell it was "gang graffitti" without already knowing who did it because usually they just tag their name. In terms of wall art some of the Mexicans are closer to the concept of some tagging crews then they are pure gang tags.

Man, I've seen a lot of black gangs who write well. Mexicans treat it more as an artform, but anyone who's been to Swan hood in the past few months has seen the infamous "Mr. Crabs" wall. That shit is hilarious. Aint saying who did it though, hehe.

Yeah, Alonso got a pic of that shit in his photo section.

We been drawing chickens and toast for years as well as crabs and other shit. I've seen every hood draw things from Fruit Town Piru to Six Duece Brim to 90's Crip to Rollin 20's Blood. It's not just Mexicans only doing that shit. HPBrims used to draw big pictures of roller skates and X them out. That always had me laughin!

Haha gyeaaaaah! What's funny is a homie from 80 Swans from Alabama wrote me telling me they do that out there too. Shit's kinda brazy.

We been drawing chickens, toast, crabs and all that for ages. People can say black gangs aint artistic but they lying to themselves and they need to leave Hollywood and come take a ride.

Well I just had a bias basically of how I saw "artistic."

I go more for this type of stuff:

But everyone has their own style of art I guess

You dont gangbang so I don't expect you to see the art or importance in what we write on walls. It's a bigger crime to write gang shit on walls so niggaz dont have two hours to write up on walls. I got into banging cause I liked writing on walls and it esculated from there.

bruh, I remember that. From like the time I was 10 up until 15, I was in LA at least twice a month on the weekends, spent damn near every spring break up there......Anyway, I used to love reading graffiti, whether it was gang or tag art. I first saw that grape tag back in '85 or'86, I can't remember for sure. But everytime after that, I would look for that tag when I was in Watts.

I aint ever seen one of these bananas, but that dont mean they dont exist. Only SBCC stuff I see is when you sneak across the Swapmeet parking lot to cross out MOB.

I aint seen a Grape Street tag in YEARS. I think the cameras cracked down on them a lot. WVGrape on the other hand is EVERYWHERE. They do the grape thing too.

And the Lanes always been writing funny ass shit.

Actually the "roach" dude was banging with that but you don't live anywhere near him so I don't expect you to see what he's referring to.
