Rest in power: Stay High 149

Beginning in 1971, Wayne “Stay High 149” Roberts started tagging up the insides of trains with his name. He would do so until 1973 as a messenger for the world trade center in NYC. Later he would change his name to “Voice of the ghetto” after a run in with the law in 1973. Little did he know he would become the graffiti icon that he is today.┬áStay High passed away on Monday and although he will be gone he will never be forgotten. Definitely one of graffiti’s true legends.
