Rammellzee such talent shall live on forever...

RAMMΣLLZΣΣ in his gangster look. RAMMΣLLZΣΣ know for hitting the A train with his spike styled lettered tags in the 1970's and 1980's, made his mark on the graffitti scene.  His unique persona of wild Gothic styled costumes that he sculpted from metal and masks that he wore almost as if to cloak himself from the norm. He also became know in the hip hop scene for his unique vocal style that influenced such artist as the Beastie Boys.
His influential talents shall be missed in many different genres, graffiti writer, performance artist and rap/music. In a recent interview he stated the derivation of his name "RAM" plus "'M' for 'Magnitude', 'Sigma' (Σ) the first summation operator, first 'L' - 'longitude', second 'L' - 'latitude', 'Z' - 'z-bar', Σ, Σ - 'summation'."
