Someone vandalized the MCA mural on 7th Street



This happened last night next to Abraco on Seventh Street near First Avenue...



The mural, by @cramcept, arrived last May 4, on the third anniversary of Adam Yauch's death. Yauch, aka MCA of the Beastie Boys, died of cancer on May 4 2012. He was 47.

Here is a photo of the person who may have been responsible...

Meh That's nothing compared to the job on the building at 4th and A, and at 5th and A. Such nice work.

Good. I hope someone knows who this cornball is. Real graff writers would never do a bunch of scummy scribbles over a mural.

Clearly this guy is from Secausus.

Here's an idea for this mural, the Joe Strummer mural, and all permanent/long-running murals in general.

Graffiti and scratch proof plastic cover

'Not cool', 'Cornball'?
This fuck belongs to a tribe that makes nothing, contributes nothing, achives nothing.
It infuriates them to see the opposite: whether unmarred new windows of a business or an untouched mural of a musician.
Their goal is to fuck it up. Then they've 'made their mark', they've 'achieved', they've 'arrived'.
They can point to their friends and say: 'see that, I did that'.

Curious about "BAS K WHAT?"... maybe this is some fuckhead beefing with BAS? Somebody writes BAS but it looks like they're UK based.

Probably some lame attempt to make fun of the name Basquiat

...love your enemies despite their intent. MCA
