Excerpt of an Email to the Crew about the LORDS History written by: Salvador "BIZR" Lujan (R.I.P.) "IT WAS IN THE YEAR 1986 THAT THIS CREW STARTED GETTING ITS FAME . "LEGENDS OF RARE DESIGNS" IT DERIVED FROM TWO CREWS "TOGETHER WE CREATE" AND "SAN JOSE STYLES" TOGETHER WE CREATE WAS THE FIRST WEST COAST CREW… …I WAS ON A MISSION TO GAIN KING OF THE CITY. IN DOING SO I MET ALOT OF WRITERS FROM ALL OVER TOWN. AT THAT TIME PEEPS WERE GOING TO THE BAY TO PAINT IN OAKLAND AND FRISCO. CREWS AOUT THERE WERE ON THAT TURF TRIP AND JACKING FOOLS FOR THEIR PAINT OR KICKIN PEEPS OUT OF THEIR YARDS SOME WERE EVEN GETTING BEATDOWNS... SO I DECIDED TO START A CREW THAT REPPED SAN JOSE… …BY 1988 WE HAD GROWN TO THE POINT WHERE EVERYBODY THOUGHT THEY COULD WRITE IT.   IN FACT IT WAS GETTING TO BIG.. AND THE PIECERS WERE NOT FEELING THE BOMBERS. IT WAS THEN THAT I HAD TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT. SO AFTER ABOUT A WEEK I CAME UP WITH THE IDEA TO START PUSHING  L.I.F.E. FOR ALL THE BOMBERS. "LORDS IN FULL EFFECT". AT THAT POINT THE CREW WAS CUT IN HALF. AND THE BOMBERS WERE NO LONGER TO WRITE LORDS ONLY LIFE. UNLESS DOING A ROLL CALL. THUS BEGAN THE LORDS AND THE LIFERS PART OF THIS FAM....   …IT WAS IN THE 90'S THAT I STARTED WORKING ON FRISCO WITH DJAE ME AND HIM WOULD LOOT ALL DAY AND PAINT ALL NIGHT. I MET QUAKE THROUGH A GUY WE WERE WORKING WITH. AND DJAE WAS LIKE BIZ WE GOTTA GET QUAKE DOWN THAT FOOL ROCKS THE HUGE SHIT... HE STARTED SHOWING ME FLICKS OF QUAKES UPS AND I WAS LIKE DAMN.. YEAH YEAH... SO I ASKED HIM AND HE WAS HONORED TO BE APART OF US. BRINGING SOME COOL HEADED GUYS WITH HIM. DEFIE, ROPES, MIES, KODIK, LOGER, CREASE, WERM,  AND A FEW OTHERS.
