R.i.p. Bogart Bello


Back in about 1991 or 92 i had the pleasure of meeting a good friend.His name IS Bogart.Then a couple of years later I met him again.I used to have a pad in Bell Gardens and my boy who does tats (crazy Manuel) was bout to ink this guy up when i walked into the house and whata know it was Bogie.We chopped it up lil and found out we knew alot of the same people.As the years went on we kept in touch and ran into eachother alot.He was one of those humble people that you would see @ the oddest and hotspots sometimes even solo.I'd be like what up Bogie who you here's with and he'd be like "solo kid"!If you knew i'm you could picture him say'n that!Last summer i painted sum vans for him and he loved them and always gave me props on my art!so that day i came and gave him his shoes he was like"kid whatcha goin do"?I was like nothing why he said lets head to the Standard to hang on the roof bar.Luckly i had my camera with me.Bogart will be missed!!

You want to talk shoes. Well, I will never forget when homie Bogart would sport out the BRITISH KNIGHTS! a.k.a BK's! Now those were the days with the tite PHAT laces and the ADIDAS.
May GOD have mercy on him and I'll see you all in HEAVEN or HELL. You choose your destiny.

I'm going out the rail yelling crazy train.

This is the first year in many many years that I dont attend the Vicente Fernandez concert. Its just not the same with out you. I miss you so much and a day doesn't go by without me thinking of you. HAPPY BIRTHDAY BOGIE. I find comfort in knowing you are celebrating in heaven with a drink in one hand, a bottle in the other, and most of all a huge grin on your face. Gone but definetely never forgotten. I carry you with me in spirit everywhere I go.
