I started writing graff in 1982 in The Bronx with my brothers CAV SV, TIDE MPC, KEY COD and my sister LADY RAID. I did my first throw up in 1983 and my first peace in 1984. When I was going to school I used to watch the trains going in the 241st yard and I liked what I seen on the trains. My mentor was CAP MPC. My throw up style came from CAP MPC and my style was influenced by SHAME 125 TOA. My name I got by just writing on paper one day and my name is Mike so I just like the letters m and k from my name and that's how I started writing MK.
