    Great analogy the way he explained it, but graff hasn’t changed or gotten easier to start like music has. You still gotta rack your paint, but now those stores have twice the security, the legal penalties are twice as harsh for writing, and since the subway era is over now you gotta be out on the streets all fuckin night. And you know there’s nothin easy about that; find yourself on the wrong block and you’re fucked, plus the cops could roll by at any time. Toys and stupid kids still get rolled for paint, beaten for heating up a yard or beefing with established writers etc. It’s changed but it’s not really any easier. I’d say it’s similar with music; there’s the changes he mentions, but the internet makes shit more competitive. Now everyone’s got a youtube, facebook etc. and it’s still just as hard to get people’s attention.
