After attending New York/New Wave at P.S. 1, I discovered Futura's subway car "Break," which opened my eyes to the realization that a highly creative subculture was flourishing underground in New York. This was my first profile of anyone in that subculture, and I based it on my favorite writer at the time, Futura 2000, who I felt had the talent to crossover into the art world. This article is a look at the graffiti aspect of hip hop right before it exploded into the mainstream.

About the Author

I started out writing black comedy, but I'm best known as the first reporter to document hip hop and the instigator of the film Beat Street. I also founded the Cannabis Cup, organized the first 420 ceremonies outside of Marin County, and launched the hemp movement with Jack Herer while writing some landmark conspiracy articles.
