Rider Profile: Iggy Cortes

One of my Favorites at O20 and from DTLA. Iggy used to come into the coffee shop, I worked at downtown to spit knowledge about LA to me while sippin on coffee in between tags. Now nither one of us works downtown, but he still kicks down LA knowledge to me, everytime I come in O20. Enjoy the return of the Monday profiles, I have missed doing these and Iggy was kind of enough to be the first set them off again.
