When you do graffiti and you get your name all over your city. Meaning people can drive/walk anywhere in town and they'll see your name over and over.
Damn that dude CHAKA LOD was all city L.A.
Word used to describe a graffiti writer
who achieves the status of king
in a city or region. Typically prolific in terms of tags
. May also be known for stencils
, wheat pasting
or other guerilla tactics
. All-city status is most often temporary as writers can only reign the streets for so long before they are repeatedly arrested, become increasingly involved in a more above-ground
arts community or move on to other hobbies/retire. Derived from the term all-star
. Can also refer to a group of writers (unlike king).
