Hip hop forefather Rammellzee, recently passed at the age of 49. This 1983 video features the late emcee mashed up with the video stylings of another urban legend who passed before his time, Jean-Michel Basquiat, who died at 27. The video was shot at a Hollywood club called the Rhythm Lounge. RIP wild stylist Rammellzee.
