OK..I SEEN A TAG FROM SOME CAT WHO I NEVER SEEN B4, AND ONCE YOU GET INTO GRAFF, YOU EYEBALL GRAFF EVEN IF YOU ARENT ACTIVE. NOW, THE POINT OF THIS POST IS WOULD ANYBODY WRITE NEXT TO THEIR NAME "DA KING"? KINGS HOLD RESPECT FOR WHAT THEY DO AND NOT PROCLAIMING THEMSELVES TO BE ONE. IN MY EYES, THATS A BOLD STATEMENT. I DID MY TIME FROM 83 TO UMMMMMM... AND I NEVER SAID I WAS GREAT. AND I QUOTE SEEN WHILE WE WERE ON HIS PORCH. HE SAID THE SAME THING "I AM NOT THE BEST". IT'S NOT THAT HE WAS OR IS THE BEST, BUT HE DID HIS TIME. FEW CATS I WOULD CONSIDER KINGS AND I THINK WE ALL KNOW WHO THEY ARE. BUT FOR SOME TOY TO PUT UP "DA KING" AFTER HIS NAME IS WRONG. THERE IS A LIST OF MANY CATS I CAN PUT ON HERE ARE TRUE KINGS. SEEN WAS BEING MODEST. BUT TO SEE SOME WACK ASS TAG WITH THAT BEHIND IT WAS DOO-DOO-BROWN. I CAN UNDERSTAND PUTTING UP THE CROWN BUT TO SAY YOU ARE A KING WHEN YOU HAVENT EVEN ESTABLISHED YOURSELF IS WRONG. WATCH STYLE WARS AGAIN KIDS AND REALIZE WHAT A KING TRUELY IS. MIN 1 BREAKS IT DOWN. MANY OLD SCHOOL KINGS AND UPCOMING NEW SCHOOLERS. EARN THE TITLE KING THE RIGHT WAY. JUST MY OPINION. I WOULD PUT UP NAMES OF "KINGS" BUT 1) THE LIST IS LONG AND 2) SOME PEOPLE MIGHT DISAGREE. THROWING UP THE CROWN IS ONE THING BUT PUTTING UP THAT YOU ARE A KING WHEN YOU ARE A TOY IS WACK. AGAIN..MY OPINION,,IF I AM WRONG, I WELCOME ALL RESPONSES ...PEACE...MAD CREW

OH AND THAT LAST POST MAY SOUND ANGRY BUY YOU REALLY CANT DETECT EMOTION FROM TEXT. I WAS REALLY JUST COMMENTING ON A TAG I SEEN. AND I RE READ MY POST AND IT ALMOST LOOKED LIKE GANGBANGER DOO-DOO-BROWN. Y'ALL KNOW WHAT I MEAN. POINT IS WOULD YOU RATHER BE CONSIDERED A KING BY YOUR PEERS OR JUST CLAIM YOURSELF AS ONE. THATS LIKE BUYING YOUR OWN TROPHY AT SOME STORE INSTEAD OF RECIEVING IT FOR YOUR ACHEIVEMENTS FROM SOMEONE ELSE. A KING IS GREAT AT EVERYTHING. AGAIN, I WELCOME ALL RESPONSES. IF I AM WRONG, I WILL SHUT THE meet the Focker's UP. ...PEACE...MAD CREW

This is true. I also don't like when people use the word "killa" on themselves? I mean for some it might be exceptable(e), who are actually killin' sh*t, but for some young buck to write "killa", it might as well read "killa toy". Because you know damn well you ain't killin' nothin'! Kings, killas, and all city, are terms that are slowly losing their meanings, in my opinion, if this trend continues. Especially all city, it's like n***a just because you're posting every single tag, chill spot fill, and flick online you ain't dont nothing yet. More like All Internet, not all city.

BACK IN MY DAY WE USE THE TERM "KING" MOSTLY FOR BOSTING AND POSTURING PURPOSES KIND OF LIKE BRAGGING RIGHTS OR THE CLAIMING OF A CERTAIN TRAIN OR BUS LINE...IT WAS NORMAL BIZ TO BE TALKING WITH OTHER WRITERS AND SAYING "SO IN SO OR THIS CREW HAS KING THE OHARE OR DOUGLAS LINE".....NOW IF SOME UTTER THE WORDS "ALL CITY" THAN THAT WAS LIKE WHOA...ALSO THE PROBLEM OF THE "KING" CLAIM IS THE PART OF BACKING OR SUSTAINING IT AT THAT LEVEL BECAUSE EVERYONE IS GOING TO ETHIER WANT TO BE YOUR FRIEND OR TRY TO BRING YOU DOWN.

Only if he has a gun. lol But seriously either your a gangbanger or a graff mixing both has never worked for any graff writer. I had freinds on both side of the tracks it has never change. I knew Latin Brothers from going to Steinmetz and I knew Disciples from the nieghborhood. And one day when we all ended up on the corner of Milwaukee and Pulaski coming out of Schurz I was asked to choose sides. All I could do was walk away. 5 minutes later the cops flew by with the lights on and sirens going. Im so glad I am so glad I walked away. And thats how being a King in the game of Graffiti gets you up the ladder to your throne.
