Descripción
Jean Michel Basquiat - Rammelzee Versus K.Rob ‎– Beat Bop
Bolsillo serigrafiado y vinilo - Firmado en plancha - 500/1000 - 2001

Beat Bop is a hip hop single by American rappers Rammellzee and K-Rob, originally released in 1983 by record label Tartown. It was initially distributed merely as a test pressing. Its cover was designed by New York City graffiti artist Jean-Michel Basquiat. The result of a disagreement between Rammellzee and Basquiat, the track has been cited as having an influence on artists such as Beastie Boys and many experimental hip hop artists due to its chaotic, abstract sound.

Due to the rarity of its original pressing, 500, it has been called the Holy Grail of rap records.

What you are about to bid is the test pressing of the first reissued version, which was released in 2001 from the Tartown Record Co. It plays at 33 ⅓ RPM, although the label states 45 RPM
