Aimes is right: It is possible to hook up the legals for yerself. The formula is simple, plus mpls is an artistic community-libral enough for kids to be able to go ask store and wall owners if you can paint. What's always worked for me is the give an take method of attaining a wall. Tell em if they GIVE you a wall, then you'll TAKE your time and make it look good. I had been fortunate enough to be able to work with NuOneKanserCrew an' MplsAllStars Meta and Mesh on one wall when I was livn in the 612, so it was fairly easy to convinc e the wall owner to let us paint. On the otherhand, I was dating her too, and she knew I wanted a handicapped accessible place to get down. SO I guess maybe that spot was in the bag regardless.When we'd be workn on her wall she'd be givn one of us a haircut(that was the business, a hair salon). Some body got an ill cut that day, I think it was NuOne, i dont remember. But I do remember that Christy wasdrinkin that day and thats why !!!! NymzOne repainted that wall. Everytime we painted that wall, she'd buy us pizza and beer. Good times. OhShit--I digress


Walls aren't just handed out to kids, but if you got skills and you're willn to work with the ownr, then yous halfway to getting a wall to paint. Understand, when I said give and take-I also meant that you may need to cater to the whimz of the proprietor. Painting their business name is often the trade off, while your name may not even be part of the deal. Just gettn to paint a lot of times is worth the sacrifice. If yous strictly painting the store's name, you ought to get all the paint paidfor. In fact if you don't then I wouldn't evenbother with that spot. Even if you are paintn whatevr you want you can prob get all yr paint paid for. Remember you are doing the shop ownr a favor by beautifying their walls. If they aren't happy with the fact that you want to do this favor for them, then Fuck'em

Damn I dont know if Ive contributed anything to this discussion, but Igot to recall some fun shit from the 612. That's peace 4 me...

yeah, i just want to get more skill before trying to do something that if i dont do a perfect job then i feel bad because its on their dime, but also, i dont want to do anything to mess up my probation, because if i keep my record clean for a year, i have no record and thats pretty much awesome.
