When he’s not eating sushi at Morimoto or playing three-hour sets that involve putting on “Smells Like Teen Spirit” and launching himself into the crowd, Metalheadz label boss Goldie can be found spraying walls with his old friends in Tats Cru. A graffiti artist from way back (“My music kind of accidentally took over,” he tells us), he first worked with the Bronx muralists 26 years ago during the filming of hip-hop documentary Bombin’. Last week, fresh from his daily bikram yoga practice, we hung out with him in Hunts Point while he put up a piece inspired by his daughter, Sakuko.

Great to see some Bronx action in TimeOut. Shame an out of towner got to show up in order to get some press in the boro that birthed it all. Wonder if Timeout staff even knows how to get to the BX otherwise.
