      Ramellzee was the “Letter Eraser” that decided to reconstruct his own language and cultural adaptation to every day words. He cultivated  his  own alphabetic by erasing the letters and sounds that we were accustomed to and creating his own due to his artistic ability and interest in an underground movement that began with groups of inner city youths expressing themselves.  This is the earliest footage I could locate with an audible sound due to the lack of studio equipment and restoration. Hip Hop at the preliminary styles may come across elementary for some but no one would meet up on the block to murder each other,  solely based on the color of their shirt. Music should breed life into our communities but not terrify  the people who reside in these communities.  Music should never endanger the welfare of our children.
This nostalgic moment in history ushered the era of Self  – love and knowledge of your historical beginnings.  Art and Hip Hop will eternally linked thanks to the innovators  that  remain determined to bring brotherhood and strength and respect for women back in the forefront the Hip-Hop Movement. This is the birth of the mass copied, and always imitated Style that came into the minds of young men, that needed a way to express themselves. At times they were homeless and loners or outsiders chasing their way through dreams that others told them would never be a reality. It is OUR lifestyle, promote your love not your money! An artist knows they have to pay the bills, but you never give up your love for the culture, self-expression, and unification that has now swept the nations.

When they lose interest in your gifts and your dreams… Promote you!

Hip Hop began by simply throwing beats together,but then it was social and not violently killing people,until Crack swept the nation.
Who knew that what this moment would be the industry beginner? The rebellion and escapism fueled a historic truth. This is the earliest that I could locate anywhere until I found this, 1978!

Ramallzee, Jean Michel Basquiat, Toxic 1, and C-1!

The WILD STYLE Of Lee George Quinones***messymandella***

What others may label as trash, can become your treasure.

What one considers treasure may become your worst enemy.

Graffiti  helped pave the way for freedom of expression for artist who didn’t have enough financial backing or resources to gain artitic direction they transformed everything  into art.

Do I want some to paint on the side of my condo?

HELL NO!

However, every time I hear a train I anticipate the free art show.

I toast to those that have entertainment me at the train tracks.

  I admire those who opened the eyes for the people, that would get ignored if no one would have explored,and taken a chance.

It is art, just like Hip-Hop that explores our love for the people,and frustrations.

I disagree when Nas said, Hip Hop is dead, it is the audiences get older and the  barz are low and harder to detect.

Graffiti and art in the exposed the world to urban art in the 1970’s and 1980’s.`

        This is one of my favorite rap songs of all time. Another Favorite is Big Jaz and Jay-Z The Originators.

Hip Hop is a apart of my life because in this song it is so catchy because they are describing a detrimental situation.

I don’t snitch…Listen for yourself.

If you are not paying attention you think they are just bigging up their crew DUCKDOWN.

However, it is an open opportunity for a certain act of…

Love the vocals in the background that are easily missed until you analyze  the vocal pattern in the background.

 

 

Change is the move, but as we know the most clever MC’s do not always get Grammy nominations and open invitations to the MTV Awards if they keep it street. This song is one of the reasons I am ***messymandella***

I give men a hard time, but I know we are worth more than what we are given the world. Tough love, makes tough little boys become tough men that take care of their family,community and a pass on a positive legacy. Hip Hop is all some young men think they have, at all cost never replace loyalty over money. The money will come, if they remember the women are not their enemies and also have a mind and opinion that is worth more than Gold.

Jay Z “Picasso Baby”***messymandella***

I Will always be an ride or die fan for the Jigga Man, but Jay Z really, really, really, really loves himself… This is “Picasso Baby.” Maybe this will open up the Art World and Hip Hop to realize that both of these topics go hand in hand. I have been saying this forever. Maybe, NOW since Jay-Z said it my sentiments will be respected. BASQUIAT aka SAMO was just as much a part of Hip Hop as “Dougie Fresh” and “Boogie Down Productions” and Keith Haring also incorporated Life and music in his designs.Rammelzee also recorded the earliest recording with K-Bop and Basquiat.Do your research?

“The truth is, as far as hip-hop and arts, we were like cousins,” Jay Z said. “If you think about those days when Fab Five Freddy was with Madonna and Basquiat and everything. We all went to those clubs, that’s when hip-hop was more underground. The arts and hip-hop really partied together. But when art started becoming part of the gallery, it was this separation. But we pretty much came up together.”

So pay attention to messymandella. Music and Hip Hop and ART are cousins.

It unites us all, no matter our take bracket.

We still all want to wear “Tom Ford.”
