Even more Banksy news to pass on today: Banksy is taking credit for this billboard hack above the 76 station at Sunset and North Laurel Ave., making it the third of what street art blog Melrose&Fairfax says are four new Banksys around town. M&F thinks the billboard is a real win for the artist's street cred, but considering some of his past LA pieces have been in less-than-gutsy locations, we can't help wondering if he doesn't have some connection with Vegas hospitality and development company Light Group. UPDATE: The plot thickens. According to M&F, the billboard was taken down and rolled up for safekeeping this afternoon. TMZ says it was the billboard company that took it down and that a fight broke out.
