FUCK ATC THIS.... is a place I won't dry snitch myself out on lol...
What does any of what you said mean, to us civilian suburbonites.
I won't speak for the brother on his attachment to whatever. ATC13 or alley tiny criminals is one of many tagbanger crews that grew from tagging crews and battled for supremacy in the early/mid 90's. Los Angeles is rich in history packed into a small timeline. It's a hard thing to explain but consider the amount of action a place like south LA saw in the wild 90's, that amount of activity packs history in very thin layers consisting of many events and happenings.
Their original name was Addicted To Crime. Most gangs that have Criminals or Tiny in them were tagging crews who had to awkwardly figure out a way to make their three initials work as a gang.
The brother dropping knowledge as usual. Think you mentioned being years into a book but not putting it together, what's going on with it brother?.
I have two. One I’m actually working on now is a historic novel about L.A. around the time of the Chinese Massacre and into the 1890s with some of the roots of what would become certain “Varrios” like Frogtown and Clover being examined. I’m scared people will get upset though when I shred Juaqin Murriettas image.
Second one I keep putting off is my insanely warped life that actually starts around 1986 with me taking the RTD up Ventura Blvd at 9 years old to a comic book store in studio city by the bowling alley and Jerry’s Deli that nomoromos talking about. That’s the one Andy Kaufman worked at as well. Then into skating, tagging, tag banging,Chris Blatchford Fox Undercover specials, Gangs, then into gyms in the late 90s and training to get away from that, but then ending up in Porn, strip clubs and mafia crap, and how I end up sitting out my Joint suspension talking shit on an off topic MMA forum...not sure it’s a big seller though...
so think I might just make it a comedy Podcast and maybe have some of the more famous graffiti guys and oddballs I know on it. Like an evil Forrest Gump type thing... call it life choices with JJ or some shit.
