Long live the Graffiti King, a true NYC hip-hop legend from Far Rockaway, Queens, whose Gothic Futurism method of artistry was truly ahead of its time. Rammellzee's amazing art and music was prominently featured in the twin towers of classic hip-hop films: Wild Style (1982) and Style Wars (1983), and his group DCC (Death Comet Crew) was an integral part of the NYC rock underground in the early 80s alongside such fellow unsung greats as Ike Yard and Sexual Harassment, back when the Village and the LES were true breeding grounds for creativity. May he rest in peace.
