Rammellzee Live @ The Antennae (U.K.),1982

Another little piece of hip hop history that found its way onto the T.R.O.Y. forum, courtesy of Relm:

Found this on an old tape i had of a James Lavelle (mo wax founder) the only problem is it is only 4 mins long wish it was longer. Feat Grandmixer d.s.t / Rsc / Phase 2 / Afrika bam / Futura 2000. Anyone have the full cut?
Now, if you are not familiar with Rammellzee by now, get familiar, but understand that this is not your run of the mill hip hop personality. This is the bugged out, nasal alien-like voice on “The Beat Bop.” The lunatic from Cypress Hills, Brooklyn freestylin’ with his hand on a shotgun pump in Wild Style. The Gothic Futurist with a knack for reinventing language by deploying symbols in cosmic warfare. Right. Peep the videos for more scientifical madness.

    Many thanks for this! I would love to hear the full show also.

    I have been fortunate enough to meet the great man and he is definitely a very creative, interesting guy but also a very humble person.

    Check out his site at http://www.gothicfuturism.com

    The record "Beat Bop" that he did with K-Rob (which he didn't recieve a dime for!) is in my opinion one of the best rap records of all time.

    As you highlighted, who can forget his performance at the end of Wildstyle when he comes on waving a shotgun?!

    He is a special guy and a true original – can't say that about many rappers these days…

    More people should know about the man behind the equation that is the Rammellzee!
