Bronx Native Chain 3 was a graffiti artist through the mid 1970’s to early 1980’s. He wrote under various aliases including Tee Bag 170, Dr. Phibes, Ash, Word, etc. and was a co-founder of one of the most influential graffiti crews, T.D.S. (The Death Squad). The crew featured fellow writers Dondi, Skeme, Case2, Zephyr, Mr. Jinx 174 and Peso aka The Great Peso, amongst others. Following a short retirement from the scene he quickly returned as a member of T.M.T. (Too Many Tags).
In 1984 Chain 3 recorded a rap track featuring fellow graffiti artist and Fearless Four member, The Great Peso. It was produced by the legendary Pumpkin (RIP) but sadly never saw the light of day until 2009 when it was released by Dutch label Bivak Records. He provided the cover art for the release and also featured on the new track by Dutch duo Marshall Blueberry which appears on the flip.
