  1. SSA: Tell us a little bit about yourself. The ARE: I've been making making beats for about 15 yrs, I realized I wanted to make beats while living in NY in 91. After moving back to Houston, I formed the group K-otix, releasing several records and 12"s over the course of 12 years. In 2004 I went my own way and began working with artist such as Masta Ace, Wordsworth, Lords of the Underground, YZ and many more... read more...
  2. Shallow Ellum

    Local media has reported for years now on the decline of deep ellum nightlife due to crime. I'm sure images of gun toting hooligans haunted soccer mom's all over city. The issue in my opinion has been overblown to appease the feeding frenzy of sensationalism that our elected officials thrive on. In this article I intend to illustrate my belief the beloved art district has been unjustly demonized by local media and hopefully bring light to the other side of this debate. As far back as I can remember Deep Ellum has always had crime. From the skinhead gangs of the late 80's and early 90's proceeded by the rampant drug culture found in warehouses throughout the district…. back full circle to the violence and petty theft we have seen so prevalent over the past 4-5 years. Not much has changed.... read more...
  3. Sixty Second Ape Radio 3-3-07

    3-3-07 - Sixty Second Ape Radio #1 The very first edition of Sixty Second Ape Radio with previews from the forthcoming interview with Jack Blood. Jack uncovers information on former contractors for the Trans Texas Corridor turned whistleblowers who say the whole thing is being built poorly to artificially funnel contracts to friends and family of the very state representatives who are pushing for the development of this new road. That's right folks! Our own little Big Dig right here in Texas custom built to waste your hard earned tax dollars! Still in the process of editing all the video, but we should have that up in the next 2-3 weeks. Stay tuned...
  4. Sixty Second Ape recently caught up with Dallas graffiti legend Marka27. He was kind enough to give us an update on what he’s been up to and share some pictures of his recent works. Check out what he had to say... SSA: Tell us a little bit about yourself. Marka: I go by Marka27; "Marka" means to write in Spanish or to leave a mark on a surface or brand. I was born in Juarez Mexico and thought it would be good for me to write a name that reps my Mexican roots. I grew up in East Dallas. The wrong side of the tracks East Dallas. The side with crack houses and liquor stores. I came up with some serious writers here. I started writing around 94’. I came up at the time with some homies around the way. We were all teenagers and skated the streets of downtown Dallas and decided to tag a few things while skating. I was inspired by Ras13 the most when it came to style and color. I was inspired the most by Debt when it came to getting up, and of course I was also inspired by Ozone, Mosquito, Trip & Sholz from the early days of Ace parking, Exposition Park's Spray Can Alley, and Deep Ellum's Good Latimer tunnel. In the early 90's Ras13, Chosen One, Vert, Jedi and I all from Dallas teamed up with Teks and Abis from Pleasant Grove after seeing some of their characters and bombs by downtown and the old porn theater by east grand. We then beacame Dallas first real graffiti crew I.C, EYE SEE, or Infinity Crew, but me being in the crew was not infinite and I stopped writing I.C in 97 for personal reasons. I still have love for them cats at least the O.G I.C members. I was the perfect example for racial profiling on the streets back then. I owe many things to graff both good and bad but it eventually caught up to me. I will say the number of times we got away was more then the few time we got busted.... read more...
