This autobiography chronicles the life of a gang member, turned graffiti artist and style mentor for urban youth—an uncensored Bronx Hip Hop story. During a gang shoot-out in a local park, Julius Cavero suffered three shots to the leg, one nearly severing his major artery, left for dead by gang rivals and so-called comrades. T-Kid survived the ordeal only to come face-to-face with 3 weeks of intensive surgical procedures. In those three weeks, Julius Cavero sketched, endlessly. It was then that he chose to become T-KID 170—T for the tall and skinny look he had, and KID just because that's what so many people called him. At that moment, Julius Cavero gave up gang life for a new vocation. T-Kid would now focus on art, specifically street art: GRAFFITI.
