The Diggers Union Local 1200 - The Writers Bench

Shouts to Hevehitta for sending this one over. Taking inspiration from Style Wars, he flipped this 15-track mix, with a focus on the art of Graffiti: "If you are not familiar with The Writers Bench, it was a meeting place located at 149th Street Grand Concourse where graffiti writers would talk graffiti, make plans, sign black books and settle disputes. The main activity was watching art on the passing trains (known as benching). The writers would admire and criticize the latest paintings". I'm just loving that he included Pack FM's "Click, Clack & Spray". Makes me want to re-buy Getting Up.
