7. CERT

Not many can boast a pedigree like CERT’s. A presence in the DC scene since the mid-90s, he has done it all: burning, bombing and busting heads. Mentored by SMK early on, CERT paints clean, big and precise. His style is based in the NYC tradition, although continuing the DC tradition of style-mastery he is versed in Philadelphia and California regional hand styles. He is only true King of the Red Line, a title he holds close, and has reemerged to lay claim to it over the last 15 years.  CERT continues to be influential in DC as member of numerous crews including EL.W, FLY I.D., 2DK L.A.B. and D30.
