      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?


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.`

Part 1:The Tortured Soul Of Jean Michel Basquiat***messymandella***


           What is up with the relentless name-check of Jean Michel Basquiat?  Jay Z mentioned his name fifty-eleven times on “Holy Grail!” Now for artist of the culture,  Jean Michel has always been a part of  our being.  Now, some of us have  purchased print work, and books about the late artist. I incorporate  Jean Michel on my Twitter Background, and did it way before it became cool to jump on the bandwagon.

           Jean Michel will always remain a paradox and  burnt out tortured soul, who  sadly he knew  was being exploited.  Obviously  he was correct. He knew people would utilize  his name and life to fatten their pockets.  It just seems fake that every rapper now is on the Basquiat bandwagon.  Jean Michel died in 1988 . True lovers of his work know Basquiat may have been very excited about being name checked, but not surprised. His entire life he dealt with paranoia ,and fake friends.

       Maybe  it is  mandatory to name check your love for the culture, but his art was unsurpassed and unmitigated. Jean Michel Basquiat lived and died, with very little appreciation of his own talent. Before Jean Michel was a renowned artist he was a Graffiti Artist by the moniker of “SAMO” and used mindful and jibberish sayings with his friend Al Diaz, that gained a following by on-lookers. Samo (Same Old Shit) and Al Diaz both grew apart, and Jean Michel Basquiat spray painted ,”SAMO Is Dead!”

        Homeless, Jean Michel needed money, because he was constantly running away from home. He was devastated when his mom was confined to a mental hospital, and claimed that his dad abused him. Jean Michel numerous relationships with men and women. He had an unhealthy obsession with all drugs, and women. He had a horrible Heroine addiction that…
