(ENTER ONE)- I started writing with a couple of cats from BG. As I started meeting more people I met Unoe from Tntss and SYSTEM from N.T.S who started taking me to the N.T.S meetings on sundays where I became all busser. My influences as I started traveling was everyone that was up on busses and streets. I remember going down broadway and seeing Gin up on all the grills, I remember seeing 86 87 scribes on buses by wisk and his numbered throw ups butterfly styles. I remember all the writers I would see up on buses back in the day and I didnt know, names that stood in my head, Zero nts Basen Devo Skoe Micro Mozart kcc Steel kws Geso, Shone64, Ser Wca, Sae and Kae Ktl, are a few.

16.(L.A. Crews)- Have u ever got caught writing or racking?
(ENTER ONE)-I got caught racking like 8 times and writing like 5, but that was my second high man racking, during high school man everything I sported was new man, every weekend I would come home with bags of clothes, shoes , those small digital aiwa walkmans. And back then it was all about spots, if you had one and it was good you wouldnt tell know one maybe just your writing partner or crew. But if it was getting burned you'd take the whole crew and just toast it. And there were spots far and near and for anything you needed. One time Slok from Kws took me to his spots, the reason ,I had a car. I give this dude props he took me all over orange county, he knew it like the back of his hand. I had supplies to last me for the rest of the year. But the rest of the times it was mostly buses, we would go to palos verdes, puente hills, sherman oaks, downtown, all city and it was worth it. Plus you'd get up while doing it you can't ask for anything more...
17.(L.A. Crews)-Did u every hit freeways?
(ENTER ONE)-I hit a couple with SKEZ from N.T.S and system, mostly the 710 . Back then freeway killers were Key and Angst, tempt they had that shit on lockdown.

23.(L.A. Crews)- What did u like about the oldschool days?
(ENTER ONE)-I used to like the fact that when you would mob busses they would stay up for months. The grills you mobbed the rooftops, the driver side billboards or just all the windows. And seeing it rolling a month later.
24.(L.A. Crews)- How has graffiti changed from back them till now?
(ENTER ONE)-I dont think graffiti has changed, I think the times have changed new writers new styles new rules. Busses aren't a factor anymore. Sorry If I bore you with all this bus crap but that was my thing.
(L.A. Crews)-What goes thru your mind when your out bombing or piecing?
(ENTER ONE)-That it's the primo spot and that it hopefully it comes out dope...I dont piece though cuz I dont have the patience for it but I admire everone that does.
