    oh, i got to see this. as a Caribbean boy, it’s a point of pride. as a graff writer, it’s a matter of family. he’s the one dude that always makes us look and say we can be great. and not just to each other. make no mistake, the more informed of us know we have inspired every age of hip hop with profound effect. the greatest lyricists have always mentioned graffiti. maybe thats what makes them great. cause, lest you all forget, graffiti came FIRST. before Coke La Rock, before The Nigger Twins, before Kool Herc, there was CORNBREAD.

    now air it out…

    but first, rest in peace SAMO.
