“MIAMI NIGHTS”, SCANDALOUS TIMES WITH PARTY PEOPLE

“MIAMI NIGHTS”, SCANDALOUS TIMES WITH PARTY PEOPLE from TheSeventhLetter on Vimeo.

Back at it for December, 2012′s Art Basel, Rime and The Seventh Letter teamed up with Klughaus Gallery and Live From The Streets to bring an out of the box experience to Miami. With rented UHaul trucks to be painted, mobile music performances, and a cache of alcohol, weed, and mushrooms on deck, Rime and crew were able to keep the party going through out the week. Long nights of painting, partying, disappearing people and vehicles, and outwitting cock blocking cops made for hard to forget adventure.

WRAP SHEETS DETROIT FANTASTIC

Roughly 5am and laid out on an ER stretcher in downtown Detroit. Hooked up to an IV with steroids to fight off a violating case of Pneumonia, I was lounged and listened to a masked crack dealer laying beside me, enthusiastically muffled, connected to an asthma machine. “You sound like Danny De Vito, you from New York huh? How the fuck they sell crack out there with all those cops?”. This dealer goes on the tell me how if you make more that 10k slinging in his neighborhood you have to cut in the cops, the curruption and jailing of Detroit’s mayor, and how he was passed out on a sofa in the trap, high as fuck on some banger weed, post dome from a customer. “Woke up in shock an shit, unable to breathe an called an ambulance cause I was gon die”.

After hours of that type of talk it was 8am. Time for discharge, a cab back to the Detroit hotel /casino I was staying at for a few successful hands of black jack, to get in the game for a full day of shooting of the following video…

RIME & 1xRUN PRESENTS: “WRAP SHEETS DETROIT FANTASTIC”
In Detroit the streets be wild and only the most thug motherfuckers come out on top, falling on both sides of the law. Veteran detective Rimessy Foley diffuses terrorists attacks, lays the hammer down on sucker mc’s, and comes up on dealers and crackheads. But at the end of the day he always finds time to artfully violate his paper work and rewrite the Arrest Sheet.

“Sit around long enough and you’re bound to come up with something interesting. Whether it’s an all night drawing session, or a series of half-joking ideas blurted out in brainstorming meetings at the 1xRUN headquarters to come up with something new for a promo video.The only agreed upon point was that if we’re going to put out a video, we might as well have fun making it. Our main goal was to create something obscenely retarded, but cool. Whether it’s on found arrest sheets or in a three minute online video, a bullshit story thrown out there should come across as amusing, somewhat offensive, and (hopefully) viewable.” – Rime

BEHIND THE SCENES ANTICS FROM SKETCHY M%#HERFUCKERS

This video covers the process of Rime, KC, Dabs & Myla leading up to the opening of SKETCHY M%#HERFUCKERS / LATE NIGHT LOVERS at Known Gallery in Los Angeles. With Lea Bruno following Rime around, this video offers a behind the scenes look at how inspiration was taken in (ingested), and spit out in some odd all night sessions at the Gallery.

This video in a way is a part two to RIME & SKETCHY M%#HERFUCKERS: http://vimeo.com/41274919

*The Dita Von Teese rant was influenced by stack of THESE LA Weekly newspapers, off to the corner of the gallery.

RIME – 50 CHARACTERS VIDEO – MIAMI – TSL – LFTS

Video from Rime’s last visit to Miami during Art Basel



Being a fan of Live From The Streets, I reached out to Mr. Green asking him to make the music for the 50 Characters video. Below is an episode of Life From The Streets, covering how Mr. Green made custom beats from video footage shot in Miami. Only Mr. Green can take high rants, parrot talk, and arguments with rent-a-cops and make some musical sense out of it…

RIME & ROIDS DETROIT TO LOS ANGELES

via MTN-World.com

Another video documenting our time in Detroit preparing for the Revok / Rime / Roids Perseverance art show. This video by Noah Banks focuses on Roids and I, painting abandoned walls and pulling all nighters in the studio.

At the end of this video is a clip of me on a mushroom trip in a vuala moment… “Everything goes with dungarees!” (jeans), aka everything goes with blue. With brush, hands, a broom and a drill bit, I spent that night painting with devilish enthusiasm…
