What ever happened to the tager Miner ? Did anyone know him

Postby HappLoccc » August 1st, 2010, 7:17 pm

There use to be this tagger back in the mid 80's named Miner, I met him back in 1985 when I first became an official resident of Cali from Cleveland, Ohio I was 14 years old back then. Miner he was pretty cool guy from what I remembered and I use to see him at the Beverly Center often when I went up there. He was a pretty popular tagger back then, you see his tags on buses on walls, stores, and at the Beverly Center when you go through those doors that you was not suppose to go through where everyone that tagged, tagged there. I was just wandering what he is doing now, he could be running a Fortune 500 Company for all I know. lol.

I knew him a little. We were both regulars at the Pico-Sepulveda yard (a happening graff spot in West LA back in the day).

He used to do block busters up and down labrea.

I think he was the first to number throw ups before wisk.

We was definately a prolific graffiti artist/writer. He was both a member of West Coast Artists and Sacred Reich/LADS ( a minor league gang that did alot of hit ups)

I didn't know he was part of SXR. He must of backed up from that scene once he went full fledge WCA.

SxR and Pozerz were whacking eavhothet out back then.

Miner faded out around 89/90. I started seeing another kidwriting miner in the 2000s

by 1989 and 1990 Miner was probable 20 or 21 years old so he had a long run because I met him in 1985 and we hit a couple RTD on Wilshire & Crenshaw in '85 or '86.
