The Escapades of Futura 2000

The Story Behind the Rare Video for “The Escapades of Futura 2000”

In 1982, Futura 2000 teamed with members of the Clash and Fab 5 Freddy for the song “The Escapades of Futura 2000.” In the rudimentary track that stretches to nearly-ten minutes, Futura raps about graffiti culture in New York, calling out luminaries and institutions like Dondi White, Zephyr, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Lady Pink, Rust-oleum and the Fun Gallery.
