We do it in the spirit of Hip Hop... NSZ's.

Here is a video I found of a dope Art show I had the privillage to attend with my fellow Ahki, Chibi Breaks.  The show was titled: "AeroSoul 2 - Urban Hieroglyphics"The historic event honored the contibutions of Black/African Spray Can Muralist and supported the the community mural projects aimed at curbing the crisis of violence plaguing the youth of color.  The NorthStar Zulus - Wa Set (Oakland) chapter help put this event on and it was a hit.  The entire show ran for the entire month with educational discussions and panels on every Friday of the show.
