DISOBEY DUH FAIREY

This is some real talk right here. Anytime somebody is biting they need to get called out pronto.
Hijacking art is mad weak. Especially hijacking the work of dead folks. How the fuck are they supposed to stand up for themselves. Of course Shepard knows this is in his favor. Being as blissfully ignorant as I am I did not know the severity of this situation in particular. DAMMNNN!!

And if you didnt know the streets is hottttt!!! People out here putting in hella overtime trying to breath some life into these zombie ridden cities of ours. Street cred is not to be joked about. I seen alot of cats when I was growing up thinkin it was all good to take responsibility for some art outta magazines. You know thinkin to themselves "Ah shit its all good aint nobody gonna ever grow up and leave this city", but low and behold these losers always got the covers pulled sooner or later and were discovered to be the cockjocker that they truly were. Even with this situation a discerning eye could tell from the jump that something wasnt right.

Here is where the Fairey man finds himself. Covers getting pulled. Panties getting shown. Walls getting dissed.

Really though he is just another one of todays intellectual gatekeepers. Its almost as if he was groomed specially for his last obama gig. By hijacking these works of art that embodied a revolutionary political spirit Fairey was able to paint himself as a philosopher of freedom and struggle. Obama was able to also dabble in this type of propaganda. While the media painted him as a liberation theologist he was able to been seen as a proletariat and with this many were able to relate. Together they were almost undefeatable. HOPE!!!! should have been HYPE!!!!
The wars go on and we see Faireys work get less critical. Obama sends the surge and Fairey who has put his name on the line dont say a fucking word!!!! Pathetic. But thats what the gatekeeper does. They get you to the door then start telling you stories on why you dont wanna go through it, and in our arrested state of development unsure of ourselves and still reaching out for a guiding hand we fall in line. I mean for reals man this wall was shit even before the wack ass tag

Faireys really gonna go around the world doing the same weak ass global warming fear mongering installation. It would not surprise me if we soon found out that the reason Al and Tipper broke up was because Al and Shep were hooking up. I mean shit remember the revolution Shep. Remember the war that youve been clowing all these years???? You were serious right??? You werent just looking to get some street cred were you??? Tell me what you know about COINTELPRO???

anyhows...the streets is hot..the streets is watching...the streets will one day consume each one who dwellith upon them...

  1. “The Good The Bad and the Fairey Ugly”


    The Phantom Street Artist has said:
    People will one day speak of a Future Day and Time when a coined term will come from the voice of the streets. The term will be a definitive colloquial called Fairey Use TM to mean when an artist out of disrespect betrays important historical and revolutionary cultures, languages and authors to advance his own selfish interest in greed and mammon. This is called Fairey Use TM when an artist steals from other artists, cultural references and fails to give proper credit then tampers with federal evidence then hides behind important movements like the creative commons and attempts to escape justice under interpretative legal defense.
    In a sentence:

    Mommy is that artist pulling a Fairey Use?
