Top 5: Victor Galicia

The plan was simple: get Victor Galicia to answer a few questions and release our first feature with him. However, as we started to put more thought into it, we quickly realized it would be quite disrespectful to give the man an Insight. The latter is usually a mean to showcase the new faces, the very best up-and-comers: in short, a first step in the media world. But when it comes to Victor, videomakers have done the work magazines were too busy elsewhere to do: Brandon Negrete and Lonnie Gallegos have both filmed and produced several pieces with Victor, not to mention a stunning Haitian profile and a full length section in the Xsjado team video. Now the highly awaited release of f33t is just around the corner, and Lonnie’s newest flick will feature yet another profile on the young and innovative Californian killer. With such an impressive resume to his name, two things became obvious: Victor is worth no less than a Top 5 interview, and there’s no need to write any longer, because he most definitely needs no further introduction.
