Wow. This is a bummer.

 

His quotes from movie alone are legend.

 

I like how he continued to actually progress and innovate well past the 80's and into today. So many of the oldtimers from then would rock the same bubble letters or simple styles and fills when they dusted off the cans years later. He continued to push.. His lettering was always very advanced. Especially in the years when the film came out.

 

RIP ... Computer Rock!!

Henry Chalfant Remembers “King of Style” Graffiti Pioneer Kase 2

 

Kase2 has gone, way too young, way too soon. We lament the passing of an artist because we wonder how many important works of art will now never see the light of day. Kase “left his mark on society”, in the words of Mayor Koch, and he left his mark “in society” with the tremendous influence he had on succeeding generations of young artists all over the world. Travel to any major city and you will see his unmistakable influence. He had an impact on culture like the great Jazz and Blues musicians of the last century.

 

Kase overcame great obstacles. He never gave up and he got up till the very end. He was a style master with lettering, a style master with the singular expressive way he used the English language. His very being emanated style, fiercely and sometimes with great humor. Rest in Peace Kase2, King of Style, Pharaoh of the Iron Horse.

 

- Henry Chalfant

Jeffery “King Kase 2″ Brown (aka Kase 2/Case 2) passed over the weekend at Lincoln Hospital in the Bronx after a lengthy battle with cancer.

 

Known as an originator of the “camouflage” sketching technique, Kase 2 famously called himself “a style king” in 1983′s Style Wars. Along with Butch 2, Kase 2 was one of the most famous members of The Fantastic Partners (TFP), a Bronx-born graffiti crew that helped popularlize whole car bombing during the 1970s. Kase 2, who occasionally spelled his name with a “C” for a different graphic punch, will be remembered for inimitable styles that influenced a generation of younger NYC graffiti writers.

 

Longtime friend DJ Kay Slay (aka DEZ), shared these words with us:

 

“Rest in peace King Kase Allah aka Kase 2 TFP!! The King of Style! I had the honor of meeting Kase2 when I was 16 years old. I also had the honor of being side by side with Kase 2 in the 1st hip-hop/graffitti documentary/movie Style Wars, in one of the film’s most memorable scenes. The two of us were rapping on a subway platform in the bronx! Kase 2 was a mentor to many of us in the ghetto, where he stayed strict on us about being creative in our culture and life principles. Kase 2 will truly be missed by all of us!”

 

Enrique Torres, aka PART-ONE, also offered his thoughts on a fallen friend:

 

“KASE and I met back in 1974. Since then we have been on a magnificent journey through this culture. We had a mutual bond that only certain writers can understand. KASE was a tremendous talent considering his unfortunate handicap, but KASE was having none of that. We’ve been through both hard times and good times. He should always be remembered for the true style master that he was, a truly ultra magnetic talent. There will be no other, he was my brother, “KING-KASE-2″ R.I.P. Forever the death squad, The Fantastic Partners, Baby.”

Very sad my condolences to his mother she loved her Jeffry so much.

 

Im a 90s writer and cant speak on oldschool but I can tell you.. he never stopped, even in his older years.. walls freights cleans whatever ALWAYS DOWN

 

I Met Kase 2 in 98.. Me and my partner Xide went to the now extinct North NJ freight yard and seen a crew in the yard.. We crept up and it was Kase 2 along with Cavs Sien 5 and a couple other heads from the Bronx. We clicked and soon after I would be taking trips to the projects and sitting in his kitchen eating and drawing.

I had the PRIVILEGE of painting two clean trains with him. The first one we was in the also extinct Central NJ NJTransit yard. Half way through our pieces a workebum popped out of the train, I slipped under the train and Kase just walked right passed him said hi like nothing happened. Ill tell you he had heart I couldnt convince him to leave.. Kase said, "let him do what he do and we do what we do".. so I climbed up on a bridge to look out while he continued painting. Eventually vehicles with workerbums start rolling up and before you know it there were over a dozen of them on the other side of the train and Kase 2s legs are showing it was broad daylight. I figured I had to get him out. I go back in the yard and try to convince him to leave but he wouldnt budge. Fuck it I took a picture of him and we spent anothere half hour finishing our pieces with a dozen workers aware of what was going on and got over no problem. We basically had to walk out in the open in front of them to leave the yard

The second clean was at the vandal squad headquarters the 180th yard. Snuck through some private homes jumped a fence and walked the track... 10 minutes into our panels the doors open and a worker with a short afro pops his head out the window and says, "yo"... Kase keeps painting..again, "yo what are you doing?" At this point Kase 2 loses his temper, "maaan lissen do what you do we doing what we do" This time I was able to convince him to leave but only after he bashed the workbum questioning why he couldnt mind his business.. it was hilarious he called the workbum a mommas boy and a house negro.Let me remind you besides him having only 1 arm he also wore a plastic leg since his childhood so he wasnt a fast runner but we got over. Amazing that he had THE MOST STYLE and painting massive wholecars with these conditions...

 

Youll be missed Jeffrey I wish I would've went on more adventures with you. Kase was always down NO FEAR ...RIP
