About Tools of War grassroots Hip Hop
Co-founded by Jorge "Fabel" Pabon and Christie Z-Pabon,Tools of War was named with the idea that there are many "tools" one can use in competing or battling within Hip Hop culture: paint, turntables, microphones, one's body, and especially one's voice. Although the name may appear aggressive, the intent behind it's use is actually to inform and educate people regarding not only Hip Hop but many other social and political issues. As we grow, we are finding that it has also become a forum for voicing opinions and sharing ideas which might help in unifying and uplifting people all over the world.

Tools Of War would like to extend our sincerest condolences to the family, crewmates and friends of two Hip Hop soldiers who passed on the same day [masked]) TRACE 2 and SHOP. 
 
Both of these dear brothers will be missed but never forgotten! May they rest in peace.
 
 
Trace 2 by Manny Fernandez TBB
TRACE 2 was a 1970s B-boy and graffiti writer who was a member of The Bronx Boys (TBB). He was a spokesman for the culture and helped set the standards for B-boying. He's featured in Henry Chalfant's documentary, "From Mambo to Hip Hop". He is a beautiful soul and always repped our culture to the fullest!

"To all my new TBB/TBG fam....I see the pride in your comments for the crew you now represent, but it's nothing compared to pride we feel for the way you all are doing everything for the good of the crew..just like we did way back when......god bless you all...the one and only  TRACE2 TBB4LIFE"

Fabel & Shop - photo courtesy of Fabel
SHOP was one of my best friends. We used to hang out just about every day in the early to mid 1980s. We wrote graffiti together, partied together, laughed together, cried together and enjoyed life together. He was from Washington Projects aka the "D" in Spanish Harlem. He was a hardcore tagger and got up big time in the 1980s.  SHOP repped various crews such as: The Washington Boys, The Crazy Vandals, The Electric Company, Rock Steady Crew's East Harlem Division and Zulu Nation. He was also a long time CB radio personality known as DESTROYER BASE. He was one of the funniest brothers I ever met and kept us laughing all the time!

"It be the double A one three coming straight out of the Empire State! Keep your knees in the breeze and your chin in the wind, I'm gone!" = DESTROYER BASE aka SHOP on CB radio.
