Queens’ very own creative, RAMMELLZEE, began tagging subway cars during the late 1970s. He as featured in Charlie Ahearn’s 1982 movie Wild Style before releasing a hip-hop single “Beat Bop” with K-Rob in 1983. Shortly after making these waves within New York’s creative scene he exhibited alongside Jean-Michel Basquiat and Keith Haring, something which would concrete his renowned reputation forever.
In the decades that followed, the artist continued to produce experimental music, costume-like sculptures, and spray-painted works. However, it was in 2004, that RAMMELLZEE collaborated with the Supreme, consequently producing 20 hand-painted backpacks.
Fast forward 16 years and the late artist is yet again joining forces with the skate-brand. This time around, his conceptual artworks are encapsulated in a wider array of products, such as heavyweight fleece hoodies and sweats, GORE-TEX anoraks, pants and hats as well ass De Martini messenger bags. Last but not least, colourful tees tagged with “Supreme” in his signature style as well as tees featuring some of his most famous outfit sculptures round off the range.
