The Writing Is On The Wall

AL DÍAZ is best known for his friendship with Jean-Michel Basquiat and collaboration on SAMO© a well-known graffiti project appearing in lower Manhattan from 1978 to 1980.  Al Díaz’s career spans five decades. Born and raised Puerto Rican in New York City, he was known by age 15 as a prolific and influential, first-generation subway graffiti artist. During the early 70s, his popular and recognized name was BOMB-1. Currently, Díaz works with WET PAINT and other signage used throughout the NYC MTA subway system. After cutting out individual letters to create clever-sounding, surreal and poignant anagrams, he hangs the finished messages in City subway stations.  In 2018, Díaz authored SAMO© 1978, a book meant to clarify, elaborate and illustrate the history and meaning behind the historical SAMO© writings.

One on One with Kierra Sheard Celebrating The Live Album “Free”

I read that Kierra Sheard is the Clark family royal princess. I liked that. (Thank you) I have to tell you the truth Kierra. I saw you perform twice in New York. I was already to interview you, when you were at Central Park but you sung “Praise Him.”  I was so in the Holy Spirit when I came out you were gone. So, I thank the Lord for His faithfulness to see fit that you are able to share with Urbanbuzzmag.Com. It is our pleasure to celebrate with you on your new release “Free.” “Free” is your first live recording and it delivers. You are so anointed and it’s all over this project.
