Early 90’s Los Angeles video footage of an original L.A. king, Chaka along with graffiti from other O.G.’s such as Oiler, Sleez, and Tolse. There’s also some daytime bus tagging and fire extinguisher dissing as well.

One of the Los Angeles’s original all city kings, Chaka, resurfaced a while back from years of silence. Stories about his graffiti have been circulating forever and he became a folklore of sorts. Caught, tried, and convicted in 1991, Chaka was accused of tagging the interior of a civic-center elevator as he left a courtroom and was arrested, and charged again. This video documents the artist’s first solo art show in 2009.
