A sudden thrill from Rammellzee in 'Writing the Future: Basquiat and the Hip-Hop Generation'

Rammellzee's "Super Robber" (1985) is reproduced from Writing the Future: Basquiat and the Hip-Hop Generation, published to accompany the highly-anticipated exhibition currently on hiatus at MFA Boston. Featuring work by Jean-Michel Basquiat and 1980s NYC contemporaries including A-One, ERO, Fab 5 Freddy, Futura, Keith Haring, Kool Koor, LA2, Lady Pink, Lee Quiñones, Rammellzee and Toxic, this is a must-have book for any serious contemporary art or pop culture library. J. Faith Almiron writes, “Fearsome and fearless, Jean-Michel Basquiat and Rammellzee commanded the cosmos. Their street politics and poetics awakened the dead—from ancestors dwelling in the Atlantic or the Mississippi River to monks marooned in catacombs. Sons of Thor, they commanded the sea and sky. No Earth needed; as told in African American folklore, they were the people who could fly.”
