We were lucky enough to check out CLOGGED CAPS 6 in San Antonio. We rolled with DJ Wingman and after grabbing some afternoon breakfast tacos made our way South on 35 to check out the nationally ...and now internationally known graffiti festival.
Previous Clogged Caps festivals have always been successful for the community and the hip hop culture of South Texas. This year its made its way home- it took place in the hip-hoppers paradise that is the new MONTANA flagship store. Owner Mic Dagger has successfully built up his shop, THE YARD to the point where they are now a large distributor of MONTANA premium paint and such. Clogged Caps also Grand Opened the new shop which looked amazing. Big ups to The Yardies for holding it down.

This wall was amazing...those are all spray can tops, CABS told me it took them 2 weeks of precision work.
After checking the shop out and chopping it up with Cabs about the paint wall, fitted caps, and ceiling work-we stepped out to the cool San Antonio afternoon to see some of the best graffiti writers in the country...and German crew MACLAIM who were the featured artists...and for good reason.
MEZ ONE always killing it with the characters..this was unfinished
This was the piece (unfinished) done by Maclaim crew (Germany) who have the children asking the question "So...you are calling...This Crime?" The concept was inspired by a story they heard of a Corpus Christi teenager that was given something like 3-5 years for graffiti crimes recently. thats a lot of lost time and talent.
DJ Tech-Neek aka Lord Meems was one of the DJ's that kept the party going, other DJ's included Christian Azul and Donnie D.
BIG UPS to Supher, Scuba and the Prhymemates collective, The Yard and everyone who put time into this festival. It was truly inspiring and reassuring to see so many families and young heads attending the event and tuning into some real hip hop culture.
