Roughly 5am and laid out on an ER stretcher in downtown Detroit. Hooked up to an IV with steroids to fight off a violating case of Pneumonia, I was lounged and listened to a masked crack dealer laying beside me, enthusiastically muffled, connected to an asthma machine. “You sound like Danny De Vito, you from New York huh? How the fuck they sell crack out there with all those cops?”. This dealer goes on the tell me how if you make more that 10k slinging in his neighborhood you have to cut in the cops, the curruption and jailing of Detroit’s mayor, and how he was passed out on a sofa in the trap, high as fuck on some banger weed, post dome from a customer. “Woke up in shock an shit, unable to breathe an called an ambulance cause I was gon die”.
After hours of that type of talk it was 8am. Time for discharge, a cab back to the Detroit hotel /casino I was staying at for a few successful hands of black jack, to get in the game for a full day of shooting of the following video…
RIME & 1xRUN PRESENTS: “WRAP SHEETS DETROIT FANTASTIC”
In Detroit the streets be wild and only the most thug motherfuckers come out on top, falling on both sides of the law. Veteran detective Rimessy Foley diffuses terrorists attacks, lays the hammer down on sucker mc’s, and comes up on dealers and crackheads. But at the end of the day he always finds time to artfully violate his paper work and rewrite the Arrest Sheet.
“Sit around long enough and you’re bound to come up with something interesting. Whether it’s an all night drawing session, or a series of half-joking ideas blurted out in brainstorming meetings at the 1xRUN headquarters to come up with something new for a promo video.The only agreed upon point was that if we’re going to put out a video, we might as well have fun making it. Our main goal was to create something obscenely retarded, but cool. Whether it’s on found arrest sheets or in a three minute online video, a bullshit story thrown out there should come across as amusing, somewhat offensive, and (hopefully) viewable.” – Rime

ABOUT A MONTH AGO DABS, MYLA, GREG SIMKINS & MYSELF PAINTED A CHARACTER BASED WALL IN SILVERLAKE.
WE LIKED THE FINISHED PRODUCT SO MUCH THAT WE DECIDED TO TURN IT INTO A COLLABORATIVE PRINT.
FOR A LIMITED TIME ONLY:
Static Medium is pleased to announce a very special print release with some of the biggest names in the Los Angeles graffiti scene.
Static Medium recently moved into a beautiful new space in the Silver Lake area of Los Angeles. To help christen the new space we invited some of our friends over to have some fun and paint a mural. This will be the first of several planned murals on our awesome new building.
The first mural on the new Static Medium compound was created by the talented team of Greg Craola Simkins, Dabs Myla, and Jersey Joe / Rime.
We will release this special timed edition on July 16th, 2010 at 12:00pm PST at the low price of only $50.USD. The edition is open and will be closed after one week’s time. Each giclee will be numbered and hand signed by all four artists. Each artist will also be adding hand embellishments to the print (each one will be unique in this way).
“Look what’s in my pants!” From Greg Craola Simkins, Dabs Myla, and Jersey Joe Rime.
Open timed edition (edition quantity will be set after sale closes)Giclee print on Museo Portfolio Rag paper (printed with Epson HDR Ultrachrome Ink) Hand-signed, numbered and embellished by each artist 12″ x 24″ $50 each or $125 including optional frame (price does not include s&h)

A little information on the creation of this special mural and print release from MYLA:
“We all spoke about doing a collaboration character wall and when you guys offered up your new studio for a spot for us to paint it, we
went there with a loose idea of how we wanted the wall to feel and how we will lay it out. We started painting in the morning and kept going till we all felt that it was finished…each of us adding bits and pieces till it was done. We were all so happy with how the wall came out we sat down to work on making a print of it!” Myla
