“Metalheadz is like wildstyle graffiti,” he explains. “The purest form! And a lot of people responsible for it have never had the recognition they deserve. A lot of artists have been doing it for 30 years in New York and are only now getting their dues. They’ve been on a long road. That’s distillation. Wildstyle is complicated. People are just making bubble letters right now. And sadly a lot of those people making the bubble letters can actually make really good wildstyle. But that’s their choice.”
