News: Rammellzee Passes Away



It's with a heavy heart that I announce to longtime Hip-Hop heads that legendary MC and famed graffiti writer, Rammellzee, also known as RAMMΣLLZΣΣ recently passed away.

Primarily known through his involvement with the Death Comet Crew, Gettovetts and as apart of the groundbreaking film "Wild Style", Rammellzee is widely considered a progenitor of the modern New York emceeing style and several graff styles as well. His influences have traces everywhere in the culture...

At the moment both Fab Five Freddy and Sam Sever are confirming that Rammellzee passed on earlier today, no specific word yet on he details on how he passed.

R.I.P. R:L:Z.

I did a tribute/sampler of Ramm’s music since most people slept on it after Beat Bop:
