Four Gs Graffiti Magazine Review

Four Gs Graffiti Magazine
I have been a graffiti magazine collector since before the internet days. I am a proud owner of Can Control #1 which came out in the early 90s. Besides exchanging flicks, magazines were the only way to see the works of many graffiti artists from cities that you could not travel to.

Over the years I have looked at many graffiti magazines. Four Gs Magazine is one magazine that is fairly new to the scene that is worth mentioning. It is a beautifully laid out magazine with slick pages that feels good in your hands.

Each issue is 50+ pages and is true to its name, Four Gs, it focuses on graffiti, guns, girls and ganja. What I like most about the magazines is how it groups pictures together by crews. There is a section on Art Work Rebels (AWR), City Bomb Squad (CBS), Must Take All (MTA), you get the picture.

In the latest issue, they took this to a new level. Each crew's page has insightful quotes alongside the pictures.

"We restarted KOG in 1996ish and we have been the LSD trippers, hart partiers, and the ones keeping it together as the dysfunctional family we are. We are all from different ethnic, age, social, and religious groups but we're all drawn to the same energy we call KOG" - Fish

"Getting into graffiti, AWR was my foundation, that's what graffiti was to me, the way those guys did it. I grew up with Saber and Bles, and from there it just unwound" - Push

There are also interviews pictures of girls, guns and ganja. Can you ask for more? The magazine can be purchased at many fine graffiti stores, including Oink Art.
