Sticker Combos and Crack Heads
Atlanta is filled with some of the nicest crack heads you’ll ever bump into. No doubt rock runs hard in the city. Dope boys and dope traps run rampant.
A couple fun combos included some odd fiends around the action.
This box got wrapped up during the day and people were definitely weirded out by what we were doing. Cars were looking on, pedestrians were asking questions and also making compliments. Someone called this “creative.” I think they actually understood! HA!
While this thing was getting wallpapered up, some doped out lady with no shoes on got struck by a car at an intersection. We’d like not to think that it was our fault, since our actions were distracting to motorists at the intersection. She got knocked the fuck out, but managed to get up and walk off to the side of the street in a daze. Some lady ran across the street with a cell phone to call the authorities. An ambulance AND a full size firetruck came to the scene. I guess she was a “captain save-a-crackhead.” HA!
The next day when going to photograph the combo, in the same fuckin intersection a 16-wheeler big rig had it’s front tire pop right off the rim! The tire went snowballing down the road and rolled “safely” over and into a bunch of flowers on the side of the road. The tireless rim scratched a deep and long cut into the road, shit was wild. Cops came to block the street while they did damage repair. Lucky we weren’t killed putting this together. THE STREETS ARE WILD!
This next jumbotronic combo has a good tale too. We spent a hot minute getting this one all tidy. This funny ass cracked out dude came thru. 3RD gave him some change to buzz off, then he started to juice NOS for his change. NOS told him he worked hard for the cake and wasn’t about to hand it out. So the dude was all “put me to work!” and Nos said “what the fuck you gonna do for me?” The crackhead had a great solution “I’ll pick up all this trash here, I’ll pick it up real good.” He was referring to the hundreds of paper sticker backs all over the ground in front of the box. Shit, this was the best $1.35 spent! He picked that garbage up good! T$F doesn’t like to leave all that litter on the ground, but who likes cleaning up after themselves?
During the time he was lingering around, the fiend was singing Tupac and messing up the lyrics. Shit was hilarious he was all “TELL MARY nigga run quick see, do you wanna ride or die…” HAHAHAH WTF?!? After that he went on to tell us how legendary Pac was and that Michael Jackson was too. Said he met MJ and he looked like a women, then he did this HILARIOUS impersonation of his voice, high-pitched of course. Shit was classic. He was a nice man. He took the near $2 we gave him and said he was “finna hit up Church’s chickens before they close.” GOOD TIMES IN THE ATL.
