An Ages Old Interview with Mike Giant

Found this while looking through dated versions of Tribal’s website on the Web Archive

How was it coming up in Albuquerque?
Coming up in Albuquerque was really fresh. Doc from LA, Agree from NY, and Stack from Seattle really shaped the scene. Albuquerque writers like myself came up around lots of dope styles. I feel like I was schooled well and was fortunate enough to come up in a town where paint was easy to get and there was an endless supply of good walls. We also had chill train yards and the cops weren’t really hip to graffiti like they are now. I have a lot of love for my roots in Albuquerque.

How long have been writing?
I’ve been writing for a little over 7 years.

Saber on Street Cred

“First of all if any artist says that they have and or earned “street cred” to define their place in an art movement then they are very confused on the definition. Here is a small list that defines the term “street cred”:

  1. You have been to prison.
  2. You belong to a street gang.
  3. You sell crack on a busy corner.
  4. You are great marksmen in a moving vehicle.
  5. You have gang-blocks tattooed on your face.

Basically,what I am trying to say is the credibility factor has to be judged on an individual basis.”

Long Weekend Entertainment: Nardwuar

Never heard of Nardwuar? Me neither.  Unless you’re from Canada, or into Much music much, chances are slim.  I’ll tell you what though, dude is good at an interview (even though his in-your-face approach borders on annoyance), moderately insane, and seems to be a musical database.  Here are a bunch of great interviews to help entertain you through a food coma.
