so let me start. i used to but not anymore. maybe cuz i got old lol. but i did it for creative reasons and to show pride for my hood... now when i have to clean it off my hood, i think two things, 1) why did i do this and 2) if you're gonna tag, at least work on the lettering, and on the art! LOL. peace.

I used to tag to run amuck, get everyone else to see my name... now moved on to piecing... that shit is hard to do and it's artwork, madd respect from me to someone who avoids the po-po and puts that shiit up!
