...articulate, bright, clean and a nice-looking guy...

Thanks to Joe Biden for the post title. I'm not sure what the graffiti artist's sentiments are though!

I can't figure out the point to most graffiti. That's rather silly in the end I think.

Huh. that's kind of crazy. Thanks for sharing it, though.

Apparently, those are the lyrics to a song (according to my teenagers) by the Geto Boys. I googled it, and the only two moderately printable verses are:

Damn it feels good to be a gangsta
Feedin the poor and hepin out wit they bills
Although I was born in jamaica
Now Im in the us makin deals
Damn it feels good to be a gangsta
I mean one that you dont really know
Ridin around town in a drop-top benz
Hittin switches in my black six-fo
Now gangsta-ass niggas come in all shapes and colors
Some got killed in the past
But this gangtsa here is a smart one
Started living for the lord and Ill last

And now, a word from the president!
Damn it feels good to be a gangsta
Gettin voted into the white house
Everything lookin good to the people of the world
But the mafia family is my boss
So every now and then I owe a favor gettin down
Like lettin a big drug shipment through
And send em to the poor community
So we can bust you know who
So voters of the world keep supportin me
And I promise to take you very far
Other leaders better not upset me
Or Ill send a million troops to die at war
To all you republicans, that helped me win
I sincerely like to thank you
Cuz now I got the world swingin from my nuts
And damn it feels good to be a gangsta

It's alwas nice to see graffiti that assumes an aware audience, eventhough I don't really know quite what this one if intending.
