How did you develop your handstyle and who were some of your influences?
My styles developed from constant doodling, by taking a traditional Brooklyn handstyle and adding my own flavor. The goal is to be different and aesthetically pleasing at the same time.  My influences were STAK TFP and PGISM TPA (R.I.P). It’s funny because I also feel I have some CASE2’s (R.I.P)  DNA, since he tought STAK and STAK thought me.

How has your handstyle changed over the years?
My style has always changed, it evolves every year. But I still try to maintain the integrity of my core original style. Like how you see a new model car drops every year with upgrades.

Do you have any favorite markers or other tools?
I write with anything that’s racked, but I particularly enjoy flooded chisel tip markers. The streets and sticker and blackbook cannot be compared. With blackbooks and stickers, you’re home safe expressing yourself, sharpening your skills. In the streets, that’s another ballpark. All your senses have to be on point to get over and produce good work.

What’s the best part about bombing with tags for you?
You can do more and more and do it faster and get your name up with flow.

What does it take to become a good bomber?
Your senses have to be on point and you have to have some heart. The rest you can learn.
