Benchwarmers is a West Coast based dvd series that shows footage of Indie Hip Hop artists, and graffiti writers. The latest installment has a 15 Minute segment of Ohio writers that was documented by the Better Days people out of Cincy. In that section of the DVD ,I saw footie of IOK, RA, Droids, PBJ, BSA and more. There is a live action bombing sequence of Five, Arel, and Cern hitting rooftop in Cincy, and getting interupted by another writer from like 2002.Its kinda funny. The video also has interviews with NYC scumbar rapper/Mass Appeal contibuter R.A. the Ruggedman, weirdo rappers Shapeshifters and Bukue One, who opened up for Del and Devin the Dood on their latest tour. Below is the trailer for the DVD.

I spent a portion of my weekend posted up here while some writers got busy. The funniest thing I heard was a group of black skater kids clowning bystanders that felt the wall should’ve had a political statement written on it. The skater kids started requesting that the phrase, “The NAACP Has Banned the Word N—–A”.(Imagine that spelled out on a wall on High Street without my censoring). When the writers didn’t oblige, then one kid started lobbying for just the nword. As you can see,the writers didn’t do it. The writers were painting the spot for a new boutique that is opening in that location called Industry Standard. The shop owners requested angels not racial epitaphs. So maybe the artists thought it would’nt be a good look. At least it drove off all the unsolicited “no blood for oil” requests.
Read about a hopeless hooker after the jump.
Donewaiting.com’s Friendship Farm don’t cotton 100 percent to naughty natured vandals that are down wit’ OPP (or PBJ). However, the graffiti in this video is pretty harmless and the PBJ involvement is somewhat anon.
The footage is from my friends at Better Days, makers of a graffiti dvd series that documents work from all over the great United States with a strong focus on Ohioians.
This installment showcases pieces in the Cincy channels and Scribble Jam 2006.
The channels are a endless concrete playground for writers who don’t mind jumping over a huge sewage stream and are content with giving beers to homeless crackheads to pacify harassment and snitching. (The upside of the breaking the bums off with booze is they protect your burners sometimes. Even derelicts have their loyalties!!)
