Classic Cinema: Style Wars
It’s Saturday. Hopefully, you have nothing to do most of the day and a bangin’ party to go to later. Some wild shit, with girls and graff and plenty of libations. Or maybe you don’t, either way you’ve got some time to kill.
Style Wars classic by any standard, a symbol of graffiti culture and it’s deep roots. It’s important to revisit these things every now and then. To remind our selves where and when this entire game started, and how they used to play it way back when. These days, it’s an entirely different beast, but graffiti still poses some of those same qualities seen in Style Wars. Writers are still getting just as excited about their work as SEEN does, jumping up and down on the tracks yelling “This is it! THIS IS ITTTT!” I love that scene. It’s a line I often quote around my non-graff homies and no one gets it. It’s a reminder that we are are piece of something bigger. It’s more than a culture, It’s a state of mind.
