My friend Rangi Harris loved Hip Hop and he loved sharing it with whomever he could. He was involved in all aspects of the street culture for most of his life and was often found at events, supporting the Aussie Hip Hop scene and catching up with everyone.

He would always make time to talk to you and see how you’re doing, genuinely interested and encouraging of your passion.

Shoutout to his close friend, Mistery, who arranged an amazing day of tributes complete with new graffiti pieces, T-Shirts, a mixtape by DJ MK-1, a moving ceremony and farewell jam at the Street University in Liverpool.

Sad to see him go at only 44 years old, leaving behind two young kids.

Rest In Peace Rangsta Boogie.
