Black Collar Collab



Saturday February 18th was a big day in Trenton Hip Hop with the release party for FOREVER BLACK (available on itunes), the dope new album from Black Collar Biz. S.A.G.E. Collective and Black Collar go back like Snapbacks and Starter jackets, so you know we'd be in the building. LUV 1 blessed the walls with some really nice pieces and KASSO, not only rocked the album art and postcard illustration, but came thru to Live paint and he asked me (LANK) to join in. For an event such as this, the only move was to knock out some portraits of the man himself, so I got to cutting up an image of Collar on the mic and placed them either side of KASSO's portrait. Went with one white and one red (shout out to LUV1 for the idea to do the angel/devil theme) and added text for some background texture.

All the artists, poets and MC's were great, Collar rocked it, and everybody had a great time. Cop the album and come thru next weekend for Garden Variety at the Trenton Atelier on the 25th to see what real hip hop looks like!

Native American Tribute Wall

Native Wall 2006: Characters by Kasso, Plan, Rain, Pro ,Pheds, Jicarilla Apache Man (left), Kicking Bear (Minneconjou Lakota)

Click Zoom

In March of 2006, VS(at the time we were not an official crew)
completed our first production.  A Native American themed wall. RAIN
had the idea to do this theme which is based around his heritage.
Since he procured the wall, we all agreed to the concept and theme and
decided to really take our time with this one…particularly since the
wall was so big…our largest at the time.

 

PLAN came down from philly to rock out on the wall with his very
technical painting style, PRO(who at the time the wall was procured
was incarcerated) so we wanted till he came home to start and he
banged out a pretty cool straight letter…RAIN produced a Native
American inspired piece and PHEDS(who no longer writes) produced a
nice lil blue burner which was capped off my portrait of Kicking Bear
(Minneconjou Lakota) I also produced another portrait on an Icarilla
Apache Man on the far left.

It was our most ambitious project at the time and we were beyond proud
of it.  It was also featured on the historic graffiti website
“ArtCrimes”.

Native Wall 2011: Ras (portrait), Pro, Demer, Klark, Delve, Rain, Joe Base, Mek, Ras, Kasso (Portrait)

Click Zoom

Fast forward 6 years and VS is firmly established as a crew with
membership throughout the east coast. Our native wall was beginning to
fallen apart after years weather damage. We decide to update the wall
with the same theme, but this time bring out other members to
contribute to the production.

MEK was the first to layout his piece on the new,updated production
and he also produced majority of the background and scenery.
With the exception of the sky that was painted by RAIN.
RAS went over the decaying portrait of the  Icarilla Apache Man and put in its
place a beautiful portrait of a young Native American woman. MEK also
added to the portrait by detailing her outfit, hair and accessories.
PLAN(now DELVE), DEMER, and JOE BASE went high up and produce floating
pieces in the space were only clouds were on the pervious mural.

RAIN, PRO and KLARK produced very well rendered burners which
complimented  MEKS backgrounds perfectly and RAS, even with his fear
of scaffolding, went up high and filled in the last slot with a nice
lil burner. I decided to do a full figure inside of just a portrait
like years before. I painted a medicine man of the Sioux Nation which
covered up the old portrait of Kicking Bear (Minneconjou Lakota).

We collectively worked on this production for a few weeks…compared
to a weekend like the previous.  The one thing we all noticed was the
progression of our skills over the years and how we were able to
attain seamless balance with even with so many personalities.  Good
times throughout the course of this wall and we are looking forward
doing more in the near future!

Thursday Throwback: Inc Magazine

Way before there ever was a SAGE, back in 10/07, I got a call from RAIN to paint with the VS Crew at the World Trade Center in Inc. Magazine's Headquarters.  My can controll was admitedly not on point at this point, but the magazine folks loved it!  I had a great time, getting my pizza and beer on with the Viciousez.  This was my first time painting indoors with spray paint and I learned a valueable lesson that night...use a resperator!  I think I bought one the next day lol.  You can even see me stumble getting off the ladder in the video below, I was dizzy and all messed up by the time I left.  Another thing I remember is security was unbelieveable in that place.  It was by far the most heavily secure place I have ever been in. 

*Ironic interesting fact, I got that call to paint, I believe, because a member of VS, now member of SAGE, PLAN aka DELVE, couldn't make it. 

here's a snippet of mine...
