Did you pick up a free Metro newspaper today? We had the pleasure of interviewing New York legend Cost for their cover story.

I am very proud that Revs and I hold this position which no one else holds. Nobody. Not the Keith Harings, the Andy Warhols, the Shepard Faireys or the Banksys. We’re the essence of NYC graffiti writers. We bridged the gap between street art and graffiti.

Due to newspaper word-count constraints, the piece is short. But we we talked for hours, so look for a more thorough piece on ANIMAL tomorrow Wednesday.

UPDATE: COST IS UP
