Hack (v.) -

In graffiti terms, to hack is to take either a pen, pencil, or marker and draw a clear line through another's hard work. Why one might choose to hack another's art is usually justified because the artwork was tagged by an opposing artist or personal rival. In some cases, the art just might not appeal to the "hacker" for numerous reasons.
"Can you hack that throw up over there on that wall next to the street lamp?"

"Wait. Why?"

"No reason. It's just that Paul made it; you know how he pisses me off."
