KEL 1ST: Hip Hop's First Graffiti Jeweler
Kel 1st Hip Hop’s First Graffiti Jeweler presents
"Custom Like You"
Specializing in custom designed nameplates, bamboo hoop earrings and belt buckles. Available in Sterling Silver, Gold or Platinum, with or without diamonds, precious gems.
Co-founded by Jorge "Pop Master Fabel" Pabon and Christie Z-Pabon, Tools of War was named with the idea that there are many "tools" one can use in competing/battling within Hip Hop culture: turntables, microphones, paint, one’s body, and especially one’s voice (and so on)! Although the name might 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.
Please visit us at myspace.com/Toolsofwar

Thanks for the add homie. I have a true school mixtape coming out this summer. B-sides and rare original mixes done by myself. just two turtables and a mixer. No track machines or protools. Maybe I can get you to do the intro or some drops. Also, I've got a couple of artist that I'm working with too! just trying to get busy. I'm also working on getting back into doing radio. Possibly doing some mixes for various markets. I still don't think that people realize the magnitude of your contributions to the hip hop game. I still have some of my original U.T.F.O records. I was heavily influenced, my original DJ name was X-Caliber and my logo was the ninja sword. I used that name before I got into doing radio. I was in college then. You are definitedly one of the best! Let's stay in touch.
