The history of the "throw-up" started with writers in the 70's doing quick "bubble-letter" pieces to "get-up" fast. The first writer and crew to take this form of "bombing" to a new level was, IN-1 & THE TOP CREW. Their goal was to take over the whole subway system. They accomplished this by inventing the two-letter throw-up which helped them become "All-city" kings in the mid 1970's. Many writers used this concept and took it to a new level. Originality is also very important and writers could be criticized for having a "whack" "throwie.
