Rammelzee
- He was that ill cat on the mic while Rock Steady Crew was puttin' in work on the floor on the stage in Wild Style. He had a sawed-off shotgun in his hand while on stage too....maybe it was a play gun, not really sure.
- He had that ill delivery & persona to me. Just the way he came off on the Beat Bop single. I remember having a copy of that record on Profile records.
- He was a early (very good) graffiti artist in the 70's & 80's.
- There is an excerpt from Ramm in the special features of the DVD classic called Style Wars. He's got those letters armored up!! HaHa, my man!
- Dondi, on the Style Wars DVD, refers to the way that Ramm turns his letters into weapons & his philosphy behind it. Respect from a Style Master, priceless...
-Toured with Jean-Michel Basquait. Flicks of the 2 of them together in Cali on the Downtown 81 DVD.
- To be honest, I think that Rammelzee is the original originator of the Autobots & Deceptacons, LoL.

My man, Ramm, you were WAY ahead of your time....so Back To The Future you go. Someday we'll catch up to you. Rest In Peace to a true ORIGINAL!!!

I just had to jack this video from over at www.dailydiggers.com. Here is Rammelzee Live at The Rhythm Lounge in 1983. Enjoy the clip & remember....Respect The Architects!!
