So I was hoping this would turn out to be a false rumor, but with no official word saying otherwise, it appears that Hip-Hop/Graffitti icon Rammellzee has passed away. Fab 5 Freddy announced the news yesterday on Twitter, and seeing as how those guys go back to the very genesis of this thing of ours, his word is most likely bond.
If you’re not familiar with Rammellzee, you can school yourself here, here and here. There’s also alot of great documentation in Jeff Chang’s book Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop. Just don’t let KRS-One catch you reading it.
Rest in power.
