Term used to describe any sellout from the various urban subcultures, such as skateboarding and underground music, but especially from the graffiti artist community.

Broader use can indicate a rich fake of any sort trying to be ghetto or otherwise cool.

Namesake of Mark Ecko, former NYC graffiti artist who faked the tagging of Air Force One in widely-distributed online video hoax.
