Jam harder like a Magikist
Rock harder like a Magikist
The Magikist sign in Chicago is actually semi-famous (as old signs in Chicago go). This is probably due to repeated mention of the word in Wesley Willis tracks such as "Eazy-E", "Rick Sims" and "Stabbing Westward". Currently the name is being used by a Canadian manufacturer of high pressure cleaning equipment for industry, agriculture and car washes. However today's Magikist isn't the one responsible for erecting the lip-shaped sign in ChiTown.
TT: Wesley, what's a "Magikist"?
WW: It's a carpet cleaner!
TT: Is it?
In days gone by there were apparently three Magikist signs guarding the three incoming Chicago expressways however now only one remains (on the Kennedy near Montrose).
