SPECIAL DONDI 79 DEDICATION

BACK TO DUROCIA.COM

THIS PIECE I DID BECAUSE OF THE NEW MARTHA COOPER BOOK "THE HIP HOP FILES" THAT SHOULD BE OUT SOON, AGAIN WHEN I PAINT I DO IT BECAUSE OF THE STORIES THAT ARE BEHIND EACH PAINTING THAT I DO, I'M NOT GOING TO TELL YOU THE MEANING OF THIS PIECE BECAUSE I DON'T WANT TO GIVE ANYTHING AWAY JUST YET, BUT YOU CAN REST A SURE THERE'S SOME DEEP MEANING IN THIS PIECE, THE COLORS WILL ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS IF YOU HAVE SOME, FOR AS LONG AS MANKIND HAVE PUT MANY OF US UNDER OPPRESSION, THAT NEVER DID REALLY STOP US FROM EXPRESSING OURSELVES, IT'S HARD FOR THEM TO UNDERSTAND WHY MANY OF OUR GRANDFATHER'S AND MOTHERS GIVE THEIR LIFES, SO WE CAN SOME DAY LIVE IN FREEDOM, THE FIGHT THAT THEY LEFT BEHIND FOR US, IS A REMINDER TO EVERYONE, OF THE BATTLES THAT ARE STILL HERE IN THE LAND OF THE FREE HOME OF THE BRAVE, THE EXPRESSION OF OUR PAST, WILL SERVER OUR CHILDREN FOR THE BATTLE AHEAD. LIKE THE TWINS THAT CAME DOWN ON 9/11/01 SO TOO OUR MEMORIES OF THEM WILL LIVE FOR EVER. AND IN MY HEART YOU MY BROTHER IS WHERE I WILL KEEP YOU UNTIL WE MEET AGAIN GOD BLESS!

THOU KINGDOM COME, THOU WILL BE DONE, ON EARTH AS IT IS IN HEAVEN

THIS PAGE IS FROM MY HEART, THE ONLY THING I COULD SAY RIGHT NOW IS, THAT PEOPLE DON'T REALIZE WHAT THEY HAVE UNTIL THEY LOOSE IT ! 

ONE OF THE BEST MEMORIES THAT I HAVE OF DONDI HAS GOT TO BE BACK IN 1980, YOU SEE THAT YEAR THE NEW YORK CITY MTA TRANSIT SYSTEM WENT ON STRIKE FOR MORE MONEY, I SAY THE WORD! MONEY FOR A REASON THAT I WILL OUT LINE  HERE LATER. THE WEEK BEFORE THE STRIKE DONDI AND I WHEN RACKING UP, JUST IN CASE THE STRIKE REALLY DID HAPPENS, ANY WAY DONDI HAD USED UP ALL HIS PAINT BEFORE THE STRIKE, SO WHEN THE STRIKE CAME, HE DIDN'T HAVE TO MANY CANS LEFT, SO HE CALL ME UP AND ASK ME IF I STILL HAD SOME PAINT, THAT HE WANTED TO GO TO THE YARD AND HE NEEDED SOME TO DO A TOP TO BOTTOM WHOLE CAR, I SAID SURE BUT WHAT HAPPEN TO THE PAINT YOU HAD, HE TOLD ME THAT HE HAD WENT TO THE YARD TWO DAYS BEFORE BY HIMSELF, AS HE ALWAYS HAD DONE MANY TIMES, ANYWAY I MET HIM ON THE ATLANTIC AVE STATION, AND WE HEADED TO UTICA LAY-UP, WHEN HE SHOW ME THE OUT LINE OF THE  PIECE HE  WANTED TO DO, I WAS SHOCK TO SEE WHAT HE WANTED TO DO. THE TRANSIT SYSTEM WAS LOCK DOWN NO TRAINS WAS RUNNING, WHEN WE GOT TO UTICA, THERE WASN'T A SOUL AROUND, WE HAD THE WHOLE SUBWAY STATION TO OUR SELF, SO WE WENT EXPLORING THE TUNNEL MAKING SURE THERE WAS NO ONE HINDING OR SOMETHING,THAT'S WHEN WE BROKE INTO THE WORK BUMS LOCKERS!!!!!!!!

WELL I CAN'T SAID NO MORE ABOUT WHAT HAPPEN NEXT BUT BELIEVE ME, YOU WILL READ IT IN MY BOOK, "EXPRESSION OF OPPRESSION" ANYWAY WE ALWAYS HAD A LADDER HINTED IN THE TUNNEL, CAUSE WE ALWAYS KNEW THAT WE WOULD BE BACK TO PIECE. WE STARTED TO SET-UP ALL OUR COLORS, THEN WE LEFT THE TUNNEL, WE GOT SOME WEED AND BEERS AND MUNCHES. THEN DONDI STARTED DOING THE "CHILDREN OF THE GRAVE PART 2" WHOLE CAR, I COULDN'T BELIEVE WHAT I WAS SEEING RIGHT THERE IN FRONT OF MY FACE IT WAS HISTORY AND I WAS PART OF IT, WHEN HE STARTED TO PAINT THAT HAND IN THE CORNER OF THE CAR, IT WAS AWESOME, ANYWAY I DON'T WANT TO GIVE OUT TO MUCH! BUT THE THING WAS THAT NIGHT, DONDI CALL ME OVER AND TOLD ME THAT I WAS VICE PRESS OF CIA, WHEN I ASK HIM WHY - HE REPLY CAUSE YOU BEEN WITH ME FOR ALL THESE YEARS, AND NEVER ONCE DID YOU ASK ME TO BE VICE PRESS, AND BESIDE YOUR LIKE MY BROTHER, I COULDN'T BELIEVE IT, THE SMILE HE HAD ON HIS FACE, WHEN HE SEEN HOW HAPPY I WAS, BRING TEARS TO MY EYES NOW. AGAIN THE WAY I REMEMBER MY BROTHER DONDI BEST NOW, IS IN MY DRAWINGS AND PAINTINGS, THAT'S WHY, UNTIL NOW I HAVEN'T SPOKEN ABOUT DONDI, EVERY TIME I SIT DOWN TO DRAW, I FEEL LIKE HE RIGHT BEHIND ME LIKE HE ALWAYS USE TO BE, EVERY TIME HE SEEN A WHOLE CAR THAT I HAD DONE, HE WAS ALWAYS PROUD OF ME, AND HE SHOW ME EVERY TIME, WHEN EVER HE TOOK A TAG, DONDI CIAKINGS !

NO MONEY IN THE WORLD CAN BUY THE GREAT MEMORIES THAT DONDI GAVE ME! THAT LAST LINE IS FOR THOSE WHO CALL THEMSELVES A FRIEND JUST TO LOOK GOOD!

AND NO MATTER WHAT HAPPENS TODAY, TOMORROW AND IN THE FUTURE,NO ONE CAN ADD OR TAKE AWAY FROM THE HISTORY OF CIA!!!! IT'S BEEN WRITTEN IN STONES!

AND TO ANSWER THE QUESTION THAT EVERYONE KEEPS ASKING A MILLION TIMES ! NO I'M NOT PRES. OF CIA NOW OR EVER, THERE WILL ALWAYS BE ONLY ONE PRES. OF CIA AND THAT'S DONDI !!!!

AS I SIT HERE I REMEMBER ALL THE FIGHTS DONDI AND I HAD ABOUT WRITING OR WHO EVER OR WHAT EVER, BUT THE ONE THING WE NEVER LOST WAS THE RESPECT WE HAD FOR EACH OTHER!

DON'T HATE ME HATE THE GAME
