    1. He definitely likes to hack other peoples spot. But of coarse, he doesn't live around LA so he jocks just to get coverage. To each his own

    2. Ok we know its you. You can't give the same diss on Instagram and Facebook and pretend to be anonymous on m&f. You've already been banned on this site for a reason you turd. Stop talking shit.

    3. You're jealous someone better than you is getting attention and you aren't. There's a reason the only people who will talk to you are from out of state or who are also hacks. Everyone knows its you on this site shit talking and pretending to be multiple comments. Your uneducated, ignorant comments are all the same. You talk the same way on all your other sites. Go away and FREE us. No one wants you here. You haven't got a bone in your body that isn't a thief. You make me sick. B4flight was right to attack you. At first I thought he was going overboard but now in realize he was right. You are a false demigod. You diss bandit and end up outing yourself. We know its you you retard. You just didn't have the balls to put your name on it and instead created a fake user acct. we also knew that was you because no one else talks like a retarded white boy who pretends he is black. M&F banned you from this site and freed us of your stupidity but they need to be more careful about watching how you slime your way in on the comments section.

  3. To be clear, M&F does not participate in the comment section on the blog. We feel that we write our opinion in the post, and the comment section is for the community. Just to clarify, M&F has not written any of the comments on this post.

    M&F does not 'ban' people, either. This blog strives to celebrate LA's street art and champion the scene, and if there is something that is against the community or disruptive, then we blacklist what is not worthy, and focus the shine on the good stuff.

    And yes, M&F has asked Free Humanity not to leave negative comments, which is also why we quit showcasing his work. There is so much good positive stuff around, this blog does not want to nourish the drama.

    As for the negative comments on this post, not sure who they are from since they are signed anonymous. M&F has tried to keep the comment section hate free and if negative, at least be constructive. These particular negative comments were only allowed to slide because they fit into the ongoing and developing story. More on that to come . . .

    So, Stay Up, Los Angeles. And Stay Positive!~

  4. I know you guys do your best to keep things positive and I truly appreciate that. Everyone I know appreciates it. We all love the blog and especially in the past few months because it feels a lot more, for lack of a better word, safe. Anyway, just wanted to say thank you to m&f for all the hard work you do in the name of la street art. Also wanted to give a big hoorah to bandit for getting better and better. I'm sorry for being negative earlier. It wasn't my attempt, I just lost my cool when I felt like people were being unfairly attacked by someone else, publicly. nevertheless, we should all strive to focus on the good because there is a lot of going around. Chod, bandit, plastic jesus, Snyder, teacher, bumboy, madman, m&f and the list goes on....thanks to everyone.

  7. I dig Bandit. The balls these men have taking art from the streets and selling it without giving a portion to the artist is straight stealing. One guy finds the art and the other sells it in that store, they spilt the profits. When asked about paying the artists, the shop owner said, "they don't care."

    On the other hand, once the art is on the streets, its fair game. Some people collect it for themselves and others share it with other street art lovers with no intention of selling it.

    1. He didn't come across as dissing him free. That's not even what the post or pictures are about. That's what you're trying to make it about.

  10. i'm not a legend yet but i am an elder and i respect BANDIT for what he's doing. anyone who doesn't respect him doesn't understand what he's doing or is just a hater. i got up right next to BANKSY's charlie brown and caught all kinds of shit from the street artist community here - all i got from BANKSY was kind and respectful words. does anyone here know BLEK LE RAT personally? lets hear from BLEK and go from there instead of assuming so much.

  11. Artists that choose this medium to express themselves are a special breed. I am honored to capture and collect Street Art and to do my small part to keep it alive and thriving forevermore. It's a healthy, symbiotic collaboration between artists; or at least it should be. We need each other and as such share a responsibility to give support, credit and dollars where they are due. Remember, karma works both ways. Nothing in this world is FREE.

    Bandit, stay strong, mate. Your message is right and true. You have my support.

    J~
