The hip-hop eccentric’s unreleased swansong is going on show in the UK.

Before he died in 2010, New York City musician and graffiti artist Rammellzee recorded Cosmic Flush, an album of “breakcore and speed metal-influenced rap tracks” with producer Jonah Mociun. As we reported earlier this year, British label Gamma Proforma has been releasing the ‘Gothic Futurism’ proponent’s lost album as a series of seven 12″ records.

The 12″s feature remixes and visual artwork from artists and rappers including Futura, Doze Green, Ian Kuali’i, Delta, sheOne, Augustine Kofie, Poesia, Toxic, Dr Zulu, Will Barras, Divine Styler, Mr Len, Edan and Beans.

All the paintings from the Cosmic Flush project are set go on show at Magda Danysz Gallery in London this month alongside a playback of the album and remixes. The exhibition opens on December 10 at 6pm, with DJ Food performing an all-Rammellzee set for Solid Steel Radio – RSVP via Facebook.

Hear ‘Brainstorm’ and Edan’s ‘Fight My Fire’ remix below. Meanwhile, fans of early NYC hip-hop will want to get this head-turning record case on their list for Santa ASAP. [via The Wire]
