Uncapped: The Graffiti Virtual Memorial

Mino, Beast, In, NIC707, Lava1-2

Before the clock struck midnight on December 31, so many of us were still reeling from the deaths of Stan 153, Phase 2, and Zexor. We wished 2019 good riddance, thinking that 2020 would be a new start, a new decade and a banner year.

Boy, were we wrong. Faced with the COVID-19 global pandemic and other illnesses, this joke of year, only in its 4th month, has forced us to deal with unspeakable loss back to back.

To try and remedy that, we are doing a virtual memorial; updated as needed and here for you to remember the good times, the laughter, and the friendship.

The first memorial piece submitted to us was done digitally by DEKA WSK-BFC.

The year 2020 has been heartbreaking for our graf friends and family in New York and worldwide. As economic uncertainties and global reality changes our lives shift to the unknown. We want to take this time to send love and light to the family and friends of our near and dear graf pioneers Mino 2, OG Beast, Nic 707 and Lava 1-2. They touched hearts and inspired many of us to be the best and keep rockin! We also would like to take this time to mention and mourn the loss of Phase 2 and Stan 153. Please stay safe and keep rocking!!

Thank you, Deka.
