"I met Os Gemeos for the first time in December 1997 when Raven and I went to São Paulo to do a big story on them for 12 Oz. Prophet Magazine that would show them to the world. I knew how to say two rude phrases in Portuguese but didn't know how to say hello or thank you, and the twins knew all the lines from Style Wars and Wild Style but not much else.
There aren't a lot of days that truly change the course of one's life, but my first day in Brazil, from the moment they picked me up at the airport, was one of them. My Portuguese and the twins' English have also gotten way better."
