Latrinalia: "It's all in The Head"

By Mark Ferem
50mm Los Angeles Freelance Writer and Photographer
In the world of graffiti, bathroom graf is not so much like murals or throw ups, but more like regurgitations. We now occupy a space that is infiltrated by global multi-media carpet bombing where our mental environment is in the last death throes of private space. The bathroom has seemingly become a sanctuary or bomb shelter whi...

Legend Spotlight: Cab Cab Cab Cab Cab Cab Cab Cab

Interview by Gabe the Saint
50mm Staff Writer

Somebody once said: "Old Legends never die." Well, I have
something to add to that statement: "They just keep killing shit."
When people talk about the golden years of Los Angeles graffiti a lot of
names cross the lips and a lot of arguments immediately begin about when
exactly those years were. But there is always a certain hushed tone...

Writer Spotlight: Luxer LGF SOB I2W

Interview by Aprocks
50mm Staff Writer


It’s Monday June 27 a late night and I’m on the 710 heading into the South
Bay. The freeway is calm and almost empty. I’m on my way to meet up with
one of the city’s most active bombers. You’ve seen the name on the
freeways, at yards, on street walls, billboards and the like. There is no doubt
that this cat is putting in work, I’m ta...

Colossus of Roads

Interview by Gabe the Saint
50mm Staff Writer

Years ago on my way to school, I would cross the railroad tracks as a short
cut into the eastside of town. It was here in this small train lay over where I
first encountered aerosol style graffiti on freight cars. I was intrigued with the
idea that a piece could actually travel around the country on a rolling canvas.
Because of my new dis...

Make One STN

Interview by Gabe the Saint
50mm Staff Writer


Gabe the Saint catches up with one of the pioneers of Graff in L.A. Although he’s not the only one, he is amongst the handful that first graced the walls of L.A. He is highly recognized amongst old-schoolers and Graff-scholars yet rarely acknowledged amongst the new-schoolers. He is a legend of its own kind. A smooth character.I hit him up wit...

Radio Spotlight: C-Minus

Interview and Photography
by James Morris
50mm staff writer


One of the mavericks of Los Angeles radio, C-Minus is always up to something. His love for all things genre defying is one of the things I love about this guy. If you’ve ever seen one of his sets or heard him on the air, you’ll know what I mean. He’s like the spazz in the back of the classroom building a homemade bazooka. I ...

Music Spotlight: Z-TRIP

Interview and photography by
James Morris
50mm staff writer

Somebody stuck the chocolate in the peanut butter, and a good thing’s happening. Shit, I love it when the underground rears it’s ugly head and cusses out the squares. It’s worth it just to see the looks on their faces. A great thing happens when you get to see an art form come into it’s own and turn people on. I’ve always...

Music Spotlight: DJ QUIK

DJ Quik Interview Wednesday Dec 1 2004

I scooped up Gabe the Saint to go meet with DJ Quik on a winter Wednesday in Hollywood... When I heard the meeting place was across from Crazy Girls... dreamy visions entered my brain - kush blunts, dumpin champagne, the entourage of hot biatches at DJ QUIK's beck and call - crawling at his feet... What I found was a little unexpected but dope to witness.....
