‘Basquiat’ released 20 yrs ago today – invocation nap during a break in filming at Mr. Chow’s uptown (guessing a longish night researching). Proud to have helped shine some light on JMB’s life & work. Still misappropriated & monetized in fake & ironic ways, but many claim him now who hear his song at the bone – beautiful. Bad brother – first level shaman artist. Dreamed a few weeks ago – the night before filming started on ‘O.G.’ – of peeling a Basquiat off a ceylon blue wall inside the prison – black writing. Working back toward the old way. “SAMO© SAVES IDIOTS AND GONZOIDS” – like this one.
