If This Knowledge Scares You, The Equation Is Working (RBMFNY)

This weekend, a city-wide slew of mashups of art, music and culture kicked off the Red Bull Music Festival NY. The month-long festival included the art show Racing For Thunder, a career-spanning look at the work of legendary NYC Hip-Hop and Graffiti Pioneer RAMMELLZEE.

The opening night party embodied RAMMELLZEE’s spirit of rebellious freedom with music, art, and celebration at Pier 17 on Thursday, May 3. Named for a RAMMELLZEE quote, If This Knowledge Scares You, The Equation Is Working celebrated the late artist’s “singular creative heresy and commitment to the liberation of language and expression, manifested in a New York City–heavy lineup of kindred voices.”

Jeanette D. Moses captured the magic, including live performances from Show Me The Body, MIKE, and Standing On The Corner.
