@Rootcheck – Remember Your Roots @LAtaco / Vol.4
BELIEVE IT OR NOT EDITION + ANAHEIM ARCHIVE #1
At first the plan was to cram the story of that night in, but some history of Anaheim came up in the archives, small detour.
If you want to skip all that and jump straight into what happened that night, look for the BOLD SENTENCE as a jump off.
Isek LTS and Arby KOG some time around 98.
Back in the day (96-99) in Anaheim there was a big ass construction zone.
Disney was building underground tunnels, Cal-Trans was all over the place and they were mean as hell in general. During this construction big ass chunks of the 5(lots), the 405(lsds dtd ek), the 22(aubs) etc. freeways would shut down and black out completely. A lot of bombing took place, kings/crews came and went throughout the tag banging days. Just195 and Earn (some straight OGs in graffiti) were holding down the Anaheim Swap Meet with a little hip hop / airbrush shop. Just195 had a wall behind the swap meet, with Lucha libre wrestlers doing their thing in the background. A lot of writers met up there so speaking on Anaheim, Masterpiece was sort of a middle ground for OC to meet LA. Earn and Just called the shop Masterpiece and in 1999 the MP2k crew was formed there, a lot of them are still around to this day.
The Lucha Libre truck at the Anaheim Indoor around 99 – Just195 / B2.
In a way, Just and Earn took writers in at Masterpiece, and gave them a gateway to something bigger. OC writers looked up to the LA writers, and in some cases OC produced the same originality. Getting way off the point, but the BALL yard, behind the indoor, is where the dudes in this story all met.
