Goldie might have spilled some serious beans for Banksy. In a recent interview with podcast Distraction Pieces, Goldie gave his opinion of people trying to cash in on Banksy’s fame with merchandising:
“Give me a bubble letter and put it on a t-shirt and write ‘Banksy’ on it and we’re sorted. We can sell it now,” he said.
“No disrespect to Robert, I think he is a brilliant artist. I think he has flipped the world of art over.”
Robert? Speculation has long stood that Robert is actually Robert Del Naja from Massive Attack. He and Goldie both started as graffiti artists in the ’80s, and then migrated to music production in the early ’90s. Goldie possibly realized he FUBARed, as he quickly changed the subject to jazz.
Banksy stated in the past that he was inspired by Del Naja’s early work, and Del Naja appeared in Exit Through the Gift Shop, Banksy’s award winning film. More coincidences popped up last year as investigative reporter Craig Williams dove deep with a slew of parallels that you can read about here.
Even if this doesn’t turns out to be true, today’s Wikipedia shows confidence that it is.
