(crowd cheering)

The first thing I ever

did as my own street art

is the Andre the Giant

Has a Posse stickers.

I worked at a skate shop

the summer after my

freshman year at RISD,

and I was putting up

some of the stickers

of some of the brands I liked,

because I got the stickers

free at the store.

And I was trying

to teach a friend

how to make stencils,

so I looked through

the newspaper

and saw this picture

of Andre the Giant

and said, "Why don't you

make a stencil of this?"

He said, "No way, I'm not

gonna do that, it's stupid."

And I said, "What are

you talking about?

Andre's posse is taking over,"

which was just

a spontaneous joke.

We were listening

to a lot of hip hop--

Ice-T, Public Enemy,

the Beastie Boys, NWA--

and they all used

the word "posse."

I'm living large

as possible

Posse unstoppable

Style topical

It's vividly optical

Listen, you'll see 'em

sometimes I'll be 'em

Cops, critics, and punks

never ever want

to see me in power

And I made a few

stickers just as a joke.

Only a few friends

knew about it.

Put some up at some skate spots.

I had a fake ID so I put

some up in some clubs.

Put some on some street signs.

And then I noticed

that, you know,

I was out at a party

and I saw a guy

with one stuck to the front

of a plain baseball cap,

and I could see

paint chips at the edge,

so he'd clearly

peeled it off something

and stuck it to the hat.

And, you know, I asked,

"Hey, what's up with

that Andre thing?"

He was like,

"I don't know, you know,

I saw it on the street,

I thought it was fresh."

And I realized very quickly

that even though the

subject was totally silly

that it was spreading

in an underground,

mysterious way.

It impacted people.

What the hell do you

think you're doing?
