We reached out to GOAR at Battle Groundz 2016, which is a Live Graffiti art event held at Macc Project in Chula Vista every year. It wasn’t our first time meeting Gors though, as we have seen him at other graff events as well as letting him tattoo a few members of the Avenue team. We chose to do our second graff interview with him because of the intense detail he always displays in his art as well as his Diverse business ventures.Screen Shot 2016-06-05 at 8.21.41 AM

Though he is only 23 years old, Goar, on top of being a dope painter, also has a prominent carrer as a local tattoo artist Specializing in Lettering but not limited to other styles also.

Varrio Locos Otay. River Bottoms. Guzzle One and More…

Otay is a residential neighborhood in the southern section of San Diego. Most kids from this area attend castle park middle school and high school. In San Diego every neighborhood Starting in National City and south is referred to as South San Diego or South Bay.

Otay is home to a well established street gang known as Varrio Loco Otay or Otay 13.

Rasta Locos is a click of Otay 13. One of the oldest gangs in SD County (1920’s/1930’s). The Rasta Locos click (RLS) was made up of stoners sometime in the ’70’s or ’80’s. They also have two other clicks:

Riverbottom Locos (RBL/RBLS), named so because the click is near the Otay River bottom (was made in the ’70’s and still reps hard today), and a recent click 13 Boys (13BS). From what I’ve been told, there has been a lot of clickas in the past, but they all died off. The only ones I’m familiar with are RLS, RBLS, 13BS, and a click from the 1950’s/1960’s called Yatos (YTS).

Hood Parameter:

North- Palomar

West- Broadway,

South- River Bottoms

East- 805 freeway

I didn’t grow up in south san diego so i never really knew much about this hood until my first trip to juvinille hall in 94. I learned a lot that trip. i remember seeing Otay tagged up everywhere in the halls. They were always deep, no names stick out to me at this point though. I was in unit 100 in 99 with Shaker from Otay, i remembered his Name from when he used to tag, i wanna say he was from JR but could be wrong. Im told he’s now a well established head in the hood.

So as i state every week on the Hood Highlights, i work a part time delivery job 2 days a week, this job sends me to various parts of town on call. While I’m killing time, i often cruise around and take pics for this blog.

I really didn’t know where to start in otay so i looked up parks in the area, noticing one named Otay Park i felt that would be a good place to start. Upon arriving i noticed a small park tucked in the middle of the hood next door to a elementary school. i decided to get out and take a walk through

As i strolled towards the back of the parkIMG_3978

I Noticed a Large OTAY piece in Old English Lettering. From what I’m told, that piece is always flying high overlooking the park.IMG_3988 IMG_3993

I stopped by the Benches and saw some youngsters hit ups.IMG_3992 IMG_3991IMG_3990

From the benches i noticed a stair way leading out of the park into the above neighborhood. I love finding stairways because the are such a major gate way for the residence of the community and sometimes a local hangout spot.

IMG_3980 IMG_3981 IMG_3985 IMG_3986

After checking out the stairs, i kept it moving, and started to cruise around in search of tags.

Otay had one of the most tagged up hood I’ve seen block for block alley for alley. Big tags on main streets, Lil long lasting tags in the cuttys, every corner and alley hit.

You will notice Otay write CK. This is marked to disrespect their rivals from VCV or Varrio Chula Vista.IMG_3968 IMG_3955 IMG_3951 IMG_4014 IMG_4015 IMG_4016IMG_4022IMG_4023IMG_4024IMG_4025IMG_4009IMG_4010IMG_4011IMG_4012IMG_4013IMG_4018IMG_3950 IMG_1053

Artists who have prospered from the Varrio Locos Otay include:

Guzzle – Guzzle was a graffiti writer from the crew SDV or San Diego Vandalz later getting down for VLO. Guzzle took his creativity to the mic where he flexed serious skills. He deffinatly made his mark in the san diego hip hop scene being involved in everything from shows to cyphers with the heavyweights in sd. I last spoke with guzzle when he stopped by the store to check it out. He assured us as soon as he gets off of this intense probation they have him on, he will be back in the light with plenty of heat for the game.FullSizeRender 8

We also were able to find some Otay Hood raps on Youtube.

and that friends in pretty much the extent of my trip to Varrio Otay. i hope everyone enjoyed this article, and remember to tune in weekly for new highlights. Peace
