The Far Rockaway, Queens native got his start in the 1970s, spraypainting the A train. In the 1980s, he branched out artistically, painting on traditional canvases and repurposing waste. He appeared in Charlie Ahearn's 1983 cult classic film WildStyle. Additionally, he wrote a 10-minute rap single, produced by Jean-Michel Basquiat. In addition to music, he wrote an opera and made forays into comic books and board games.
