Mark Ecko is a Punk-Ass Bitch!!!

Hip-hop fashion designer and official herb Mark Ecko, in an interview with Wired, explains why he supports NYC Mayor Bloomberg’s anti-graffiti, anti-youth measures. This is a dude who made millions exploiting the graffiti culture! Needless to say, he sounds like a complete jackass…

Here’s an excerpt:

"Wired: Given that both your clothing line and videogame celebrate graffiti culture, some might see your crusade as self-serving.

Ecko: Ita€™s completely self-serving. Therea€™s nothing hidden about it. Why is it OK for Procter & Gamble, which owns the Pampers brand, to advocate for all things family and baby? I have commercial interests, too. Nike funds an after-school sports program. Is that self-serving?"

  1. Did you even read the article? It clearly states he’s trying to QUASH the Bloomberg measures, not support them. Lol, whoever runs this site is an idiot.

    What?!

  2. its true the thing is misrepresented on this post, but dude still is a bitch… he does say: “Listen, if something’s not yours and you don’t have the owner’s consent, you shouldn’t paint there. That’s the same as taking something that’s not yours.”… which could be interpreted as contradictory given that he made a whole bag of moneys off comodifying grafiti culture.

    u ever thought of how it sounds to call somebody an idiot when youre commenting on their site??
