This photo is way better than a hologram, don't you think? One of the premier hip-hop photographers on the West Coast during the boom of the early 1990s was Michael Miller, who captured iconic shots of the likes of Tupac, Eazy-E, and Ice Cube, and after a strong showing at LA's Known Gallery, Miller is bringing his legendary works to San Francisco's FIFTY24SF Gallery on April 27—28, 2012.

One of the most fascinating artists to come out of the hip-hop and graffiti movements in the 1980s, as well as the highlight of MOCA's 2011 Art In the Streets and our issue done in conjunction was the late Rammellzee, a true visual and musical pioneer. Starting March 9, the artist's The Letter Racers sculptures will be on view in NYC for the first time.

Here you have The Clash, Fab 5 Freddy, and Futura 2000 all together on one track, with graffiti images being flashed and artists being name-dropped by both Fred and Futura. Video after the jump . .
