In Memory of Late Graf Writer P.Nut 2

Rest In Paint to the 1970s writer legend, Robert "P.Nut 2" Hayes.

P.Nut Robert Hayes

Rest in Peace P.Nut 2. Graffiti writing culture is getting older and as time passes, we lose more and more soldiers. There aren’t any soldiers who survived the Civil War still around, but we can still touch and feel the residue from that conflict today. Our condolences go out to the family of legendary ’70s-era “graffiti” artist Robert “P.Nut 2” Hayes. His influence continues to live on via the index fingers of artists all over the globe.

Terror 161 shared his memories of P.Nut 2 on 12ozProphet saying,

“Golden eras of graff are subjective, but P.NUT 2 wrote with the greatest during the period when piecing evolved into an artform. Some of his outlines came directly from his friend Phase 2 whose “P” greatly influenced his own. He came up during the single hit era, writing Bobby 172 and lasted through the mid 70’s doing some of the nastiest most iconic pieces ever with the most hallowed crews of the period.”

I had some 8 track tapes in my room and he said to me do you have hollywood swinging I said sure Pnut of course I got that jam. I just took it of the shelf and gave it to him. I loved that guy he was one of the coolest writers you could ever meet. He never got style from any one he created his own joints right of the top of his own head. He use to come to my house every day I watched him grow we were partners.
