We did an interview with Soon, who moved out to Los Angeles in 1982 from the Bronx, New York. After living in Co-op city in the north-east Bronx, his mother moved to Los Angeles right after he got bit with the Graffiti bug. When he go to Los Angeles in the Spring of 1982 he attended John Burrough Junior High School (Now John Burroughs Middle School) and continued with graffiti and by 1983 and 1984 he was doing hip-hop graffiti style burners that Los Angeles had never seen. check out part 1 and part 2 of this interview we did with Soon in March 2021 in Los Angeles.
