The RAMM:ELL:ZEE by MOCA

Following the death of the Queens-born artist, performer and iconoclast Rammellzee last year, the Museum of Contemporary Art in LA has released this short video piece commemorating his school of “Gothic Futurism.” Rammellzee (whose name was based on the mathematical equation for magnitude) was not just one of the founders of New York hip-hop and a graffiti world influence but also a true street philosopher. Tidbits of his prose on anarchy from Iconic Panzerisms can be found in the video. Showcasing an extensive and bizarre collection of work, MOCA’s piece is definitely worth checking out for both discerning art fans and the merely curious alike.
