BoogieIt's All Good 10th Anniversary Edition
“Ten years ago, when I was working on the original It’s All Good, I never did contact sheets; I didn’t even own a lightbox. I would look at the negative sheet by the light of the window and choose a couple of images to scan. Over the years, I realized how many images I missed, so many that should’ve been in the book from the beginning. I still don’t own a lightbox, but ten years of editing experience counts for something!” —Boogie
“A whole lot of initiations happen every day. You hear about them on the news, but you don’t know it was an initiation. You hear about somebody getting shot somewhere in New York, and nobody knows why that person got shot; nine times out of ten it was a gang initiation. I am a three-star general in the Bloods, so I know what’s going on. The majority of crime in New York City is ’cause of gangs; drugs, killings, stabbings, robberies, even the bullshit car theft, the fucking pettiest crimes and misdemeanors are all ’cause of gangs.” —Kasino, from his testimonial in It’s All Good
