VICE meets members of the Miami Style Gods (MSG), a graffiti crew based in Miami, and follows them on a night of “bombing” — leaving their tags on highway signs, walls, garage doors, bridges, and more.
Crews like MSG are prolific, and go out of their way to tag as many locations, as many times as possible, no matter what the cost. But with the rise of social media and the gentrification of now art districts like Wynwood, where graffiti is essentially permitted, we are now seeing corporate appropriation of this underground subculture that corporate America once looked down upon that is now changing the graffiti world for good or bad.
Representing the ninth level of hell “BAT”(PTS,VTO,501) and “OLA”(PTS,VTO) come through and discuss killing the graffiti game, history, despise for street art, viking, aids, meth, bombing, teamwork, art, hipsters, vandalism etc.

A 22 minute Mini-Documentary shot by General Moe on Wisk and Ser of the legendary crew West Coast Artists. In this day and age of the Los Angeles graffiti art culture i think it is very necessary for today’s writers and artists to have an understanding of what actually took place in the “streets” during the golden era, so i interviewed two of the golden era’s well respected, innovative writers that were determined to be successful with taking street bombing to a higher level during the 1980’s and early 1990’s.
It literally took eleven hour day and night sessions with my editor to bring this classic story and vision to life. During the course of my filming missions around Los Angeles it didn’t always go as smooth as it may look on this video, many times i was stopped and questioned by L.A.P.D officers and Security Guards due to certain locations i dared to go into. The missions consisted of going to very grimy areas in the city in the AM all alone, hanging over many dangerous freeway overpasses, just determined to get that one shot that i considered dam near perfect, plus almost dropping my cellular phone while on one of the 110 freeway overpasses in the process of getting certain shots! Enjoy it because i put alot into composing this piece, its for the Los Angeles “street legends” of the graffiti art culture and for the one’s who wants to know more about Wisk and Ser’s All-City missions.

2010 documentary on the history of graffiti in Philadelphia, featuring interviews with Cool Earl, Kool Klepto Kidd, Johnski, Notorious BIK, MB, Kair, former mayor Wilson Goode, Jane Golden, and many more.
@mediaexplosion spent a lot of time with pre-tattooed Mike Giant in the late 90’s working on a graffiti documentary, which was never widely released.This was filmed in San Francisco, San Diego and Los Angeles. It features stills, doodles, stickers from Mike’s sketchbooks, some classic skateboard graphics, live painting with Persue in SD, collabs with Felon and Sope in SF. And a couple shots of Giant’s beef with Kept. The main interview was filmed during a wander through SF Chinatown, after a long night hallucinating at a rave. SF was a graffiti wonderland at the time and there are background pieces from legends like Twist, KR, Rem, Bles and a bunch more if you keep your eyes peeled.
