ROCKIN’ IT SUCKERS is the story of New York City’s infamous RIS crew. As authorities decided to clean up the city and a zero-tolerance policy towards graffiti was instituted; the RIS crew was determined to keep the trains colourful and decided to wage their own war with the city. As a result, they took over New York with style, and along the way influenced graffiti writers long way outside the five boroughs. The crack down from the authorities didn’t only trigger the RIS crew to write more, it also made them come up with faster techniques and develop their styles, all done with the crews’ characteristic arrogance and humorous touch. Soon they became one of the world’s most important and influential graffiti crews.
ROCKIN’ IT SUCKERS feature never before seen images of graffiti by the leading figures in the crew as they share their thoughts on bombing, vandalizing and rocking the city. Essays by: Duel, Fuzz One, Ghost, Ket, and Noxer. Features the work of Bruz, Det, Ghost, JA One, Reas, Sane, Smith, Veefer and many more.
