Rammellzee was born in 1960 in Far Rockaway, Queens, NY.

Rammellzee, aside from being an old school graffiti artist with works seen around the world was very much an early MC/Rap Pioneer of vocal styles. Some of which were taught to him by one of his partners from way back- Jamel – Z.

Styles like the “Gangsta Duck” (which he used on the infamous Jean Michel Basquiat produced “Beat Bop” circa 1983 with K Rob), “WC Fields” (he used it in the movie Wild Style during his lyrically beyond performance with Shock Dell Live at the Amphitheater circa 1982), and the “Tricky Dick” were all part of his arsenal.

His influence can be heard in countless rappers including The Beastie Boys and B-Real from Cypress Hill

Rammellzee is still active today unleashing futuristic Hip Hop, painting his style (called Iconoklast Panzerism), and performing all throughout the world.
