  1. THIS BOOK IS SUCH A DISAPOINTMENT!!! BIGTIME THEY LEFT SO MUCH HISTORY OUT AND ONE OF THE REAL CLEAN TRAIN KILLERS LIKE VEN! WHO MADE RIS BIG WAS NOT EVEN HONORED IN THE BOOK AND THE PAPER IS LIKE SOME NEWSPAPER TERRIBLE CMON ITS 2010 GET REAL THIS BOOK SUCKS!!!

    1. i guess there has to be a sequel. With the amount of work we did it was impossible to get it all in a little book. The paper is fine. Get the book and see for yourselves.

  2. It’s also funny how , people forgot about me bombing clean trains o the insides
    and a few burners and throw ups that I did,
    I still remember meeting Cope2 at 161st stop while motion bombing.
    he was all smiles =)I DONT FORGET ANYONE!

  3. That i dont understand, How the hell you make a RIS BOOK and not one VEN Photo, Shit VEN should have been the main star if you ask me about RIS CREW, Wow maybe VEN didnt want to get down because he knows KET is scammer and jerks people on money when it comes to BOOK DEALS…

  4. Joe Woods? Who are you? I ask because you are making a serious, slanderous accusation and based on what? Calling me a scammer and saying that I jerk people is nonsense. Identify yourself and state facts if not its just you talking shit and inventing and creating gossip and lies. Conduct yourself like a man not a child.

    Ven is not in the book because he is not a member of RIS. If you want to jock Ven, and you can, check out his flickr page.

    The worst thing about people that make up bullshit like this is that lots of hard work and time goes into making the books that represent NY graffiti and the stories from the writers who paid dues like Sento, Part One, Ghost, and others who I have worked with. To say that i jerk people or I am a scammer belittles this work and the intelligence of everyone I have worked with. It undermines the work still to be done. you fool…

  5. I also was lookin forward to gettin this book to see Vens stuff. He was def a main star in that movement from the shift to kleen trainz and a main member of Ris. I gotta check this book though. Why is he not down anymore?

  6. I had removed myself from RIS prior to the book being worked on. I prefer to stick with putting AOK up where I feel crew loyalty is much stronger between myself and it’s original members. I have a strong opinion that if you push a crew with your work it should stand for something more then just an acronym of letters.

    Hopefully in the future their will be an AOK book or perhaps a Ven book.

  7. @invisibleman. That is not me in the picture above. I know who it is but if is name is not revealed in the book then perhaps it’s best for me not to say.

  8. Oh true. No doubt man. Much respect. I’m from NYC and I always admired ya style and kleens. I feel ya on the crew shit. Nowadays niggas push just letters. Crew should be niggas that your had times with. I just got back into graff after ten years not rockin. But movin to Brooklyn got me hype. I push my crew that no one even write any more but I push it because those are my peeps for over ten years.

    Respect-

  9. Matter of fact I was peepin Henry Chalfants 50th birthday party on youtube….you should check that out if you haven’t seen it. Wild. Niggas shoutin Ris crew at the end…….crazy..

  10. I STILL THINK VEN SHOULDVE BEEN IN THE BOOK CAUSE ONE THING I CAN TELL YOU IS THAT YOU CANT CHANGE HISTORY!! AND VEN PUT IN MAD WORK FOR THE RIS CREW HE SHOULDVE DEFENETLY BEEN HONORED!!! THATS BEING REAL TO ME WHEN I DID MY BOOK I HAD PROBLEMS WITH HOW AND NOSM AND TATS CRU AT THE TIME AND PEOPLE WOULD TELL ME YO DONT PUT THERE SHIT IN THEM NIGGAS BETRAYED AND HATE ON YOU!!! I SAID ITS ALL GOOD IMA REAL ASS DUDE IF YOU REALLY KNOW ME YOU CANT CHANGE HISTORY AND THEY WERE PART OF IT!! THATS WHY IT SOLD OUT 5000 COPYS!!! CAUSE IT WAS REAL BABY!!! LOLOLOLOLOL STAY TUNED TO COPE2 THE TRUE STORY! THIS BOOKS GONNA BE THE REALEST AND GREATEST OF ALL TIME!!!! IF YA HATE ON ME NOW OMG WAIT UNTIL THIS BOOK DROPS!!!! I LOVE IT!! LOLOLOLOL SEE YA IN MIAMI PEACE!!!!!!! RESPECT TO KET FOR REPIN FOR THE GRAFF WRITERS!!!

  11. I agree. Without him things wouldn’t have went down how they went down. He is Ris whether or not he is down. It’s like Ken Swift and Rock Steady. Ken Swift will always be Rock Steady even though some drama went down and he don’t rep it. But Kenny is RSC history….na mean. I would have still put him in. Aok book gotta come out…..
