Rest In Peace YNOT

I'm struggling to put this post together, I really don't know what to say except that we lost a member of our family today, a homie that touched many of our lives, our crew will never be the same and i'm just all fucked up inside.

I wanted to do this post so everyone can have a place to share their memories of our friend.





We love you and we miss you, and we will never forget you homie.

Rest In Power Ynot.

Never got to meet the Guy, but always had major respect for how much work he put in, and how much his style progressed in such a short time. Rest In Power. -Mayor-

As an urban artist myself, I used to see his name everywhere, it, like most good artwork made me smile. Condolences to the family of this young artist, and to the members of the M.S.G crew. My heart goes out to you. Rest in Peace.

Damn I cant believe I gave up the chance to chill with you for real... Jus know not to give up opportunities that are there as they don't last forever, just as the people who you know...

I remember coming home on i95 as a jit and seeing DOSE YNOT everywhere, not even knowing what it meant back then... You made an impact on everyone and everything around you.

And to think only 21 years old and you've been up for the past 7 years.

A very respectful, smart, talented person to all he encountered. Deepest condolences to his family, especially his son. You are very much alive in the hearts of those you loved, and who love you.

My little man was an original. They don't make em like this too often. I always tried to be an older influence on him but in the end I was a fan like everyone else who really knew him. Thank you, for the good times, the laughs & jokes, the henny, e&j (when money was tight!), purp, drawing sessions, arguments over color-schemes, milk-crate basketball, sketch exchanges, and all night handstyle battles. You aint dead to me little homie, you've just moved on. My heart is broken, I loved you to the very end my man, you was a certified G to the last breath. -------Q

You were one of the most prolific writers I saw up when I first started coming to Miami. From then on I would always look forward to breaking my neck looking at whatever new shit you had rocked on the highway each time I made the drive south to Miami... I swear to God you and dose nearly caused me to crash my whip every trip I made... I'm glad to have met you, condolences to your friends and family. Rest in Peace

YNOTSE was a beast. When I first moved to miami a few years ago thats all I saw everywhere. Dope Tags,them Y's all over the place, soundwall pieces and dope ass throwies. Never got to meet him but I'm pretty close with some of you MSG cats who knew him very well. My sympathy and condolences go out to anyone who was close to this cat. Seemed like a real cool Kid. Its a a shame to lose such an inspiration. Hes definately top five on my list of writers in South Florida. REST IN PARADISE homeboy.

My very solemn condolences to ynot's friends and loved ones. This is a tragic loss of human life.

ENVE said...

The times we shared were always memorable and usually off the hook or just kickin it at a wall, being taken from
us like this is a hard thing to swallow, pause, but for real YNOT you will be missed dearly and your name will live on forever. Your work in the streets speeks for itself. But your flavor and person will be lived through those closest to you homie. Damn it's hard to believe this shit happened.

Rest in peace, power and pleasure.

I spent many a night chilling outside of clubs talking shit with Ynot. He was too young to get in and I hate clubs.

Anyone who spent time with him, knew how smart and talented this kid really was. This is a terrible tragedy.

RIP Brother..

I remember working at TI's like 7-8 years ago and first seeing YNOT up just a few blocks away.

It was on a billboard on the palmetto. The next day, another and another and another.

I don't think I have ever seen anyone hit as many billboards as Ynot & Dose.

I don't think there was ever or will ever be a tag team duo as big, bad, and infamous as DOSE & YNOT.

I always looked up to you, I was never inspired by someone younger than me, or new to the game, until you guys came along.

The graffiti scene is full of haters, but I quickly showed respect and acknowledged your "KING" Status.

I always looked up to you, literally. Every time I looked up I saw your tag, on a billboard along a major highway. Now I gotta try to keep my head up, and keep you in my prayers.

Power & Strength to all his family, friends, and writers.

The world of street art has lost another primary color...RIP to Ynot...a Young Nigha On Track to leave his legacy...respect & love to your fam and most importantly the life of a son you leave on this earth.

It was always a pleasure nigha to catch your shit off the highways...from your trademark "Y" in throws to the fresh ass productions....like Cynic said, you literally made a couple of us almost run off the road...

Sfla looses another GREAT artist who is willing to risk their LIFE for what YOU have accomplished....

Big ass YNOT on a soundwall on the 95. First piece of graff I saw when I got off the plane and was driving to Miami for the first time in '04. And it never stopped, YNOT & DOSE everywhere I went. It was a pleasure to watch you progress and grow as a writer.R.I.P.YNOT.
