Beat Bop Records Case Bundle

Beat Bop Bundle 4Toted as one of the Holy Grail of hip hop records, “Beat Bop” featuring MCs Rammellzee and K-Rob, produced by Jean-Michel Basquiat, is given some new life from the cats at Get On Down. Licensed exclusively from the Basquiat estate, the record case bundle features the original Tartown version of the tune and various original artwork from the first sleeve by the artist, producer (and sometimes musician) Basquiat. The box bundle itself was inspired by this first pressing, and features Basquiat’s crown logo and classic images from the original cover, which will cost you around $2k if you want to have that piece of history. Get On Down pays tribute to this very special release in hip hop by putting together the bundle, available for the first and last time. No other boxes will be produced after this run. Beat Bop Bundle 2Along with the very sturdy box (which holds approximately 50 records), and vinyl, the bundle set will include a four-panel folded insert with in-depth background on the original single’s creation. This was compiled by Andrew “Noz” Nosnitsky. The insert also includes interviews with many of the artists involved in the song’s production: Rammellzee, K-Rob, Glenn O’Brien, percussionist Al Diaz, Profile’s Cory Robbins and more. This set not only a great tribute to the original release itself, but to exactly what it meant to hip hop culture and how this particular record influenced many people in hip hop along the way.
