BEAT BOP: BREAK IT DOWN YEAH BABY!

Had the post this...just to have it up on here! The hip-hip Holy Grail.."BEAT BOP"

The Beat Bop single featuring pioneering rappers Rammellzee and K-Rob, originally released in 1983 by record label Tartown. Initially distributed merely as a test pressing, it is notable for being featured in the hip-hop documentary film Style Wars and produced by famed New York graffiti artist Jean-Michel Basquiat, who also did the infamous cover art. The track has been cited as having an influence on artists such as Beastie Boys & Cypress Hill and many experimental hip hop artists due to its slow tempo, chaotic, abstract sound.
