Back in ’95, Mark and I met Barry while he was painting with Dug on Market Street. He asked us, “do you write?” and when I said “yeah Reign”, he is the only one who ever said “r-e-i-g-n?”
Normally, people spell my name wrong, but he got it right. Twist said, “I see you up” and I said “yeah I see you up too”. This is when he was up on every corner of the city. Couldn’t miss his tags and throwies! Long gone are the days of seeing “dope” tags and throw ups all over the city (there are a few good writers that stick out though). He is still has one of the best hand styles in the business. True master of the craft!
