23. Dondi

Aliases: Naco, Bus 129

Neighborhood: Brooklyn

Years Active: 1976-1984

Dondi was not unlike Kool 131 in that it was all about the outline. He also had great camouflage skills. Dondi would become one of the strongest writers to emerge from the Brooklyn scene. He did great whole-cars, blockbusters, and throw-ups, and he possessed a great tag, but his claim to fame was style. He worked with various writers, always making them stronger. He left the trains in the early '80s to enter the art world.
