Notes

500 copies of this first edition were reportedly pressed.

"Test Pressing" is printed on "Side 2" label.

Neither the artists' names nor the track title appear on the labels.

On some copies, the labels were erroneously affixed to the opposite side of the audio.

This version can be differentiated from the two standard vinyl subsequent 45 RPM editions by the runout groove etchings and by the a 2.8" pressing ring that encircles the labels.

There is also another reissue version with similar runout groove etchings that plays at 33 ⅓ RPM.

Barcodes

  • Matrix / Runout (A-side runout etching): TT-001-B-E-1
  • Matrix / Runout (B-side runout etching): TT-001-A-E-1

Short intro

Beat Bop is a single by American hip-hop artists 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 hip hop artists due to its chaotic, abstract sound. 2 - The Rammellzee.

Hi there, quick one: is it on purpose that the etching are noted as reversed, i.e.: etching B-E-1 onside A? Is this a proof of an authentic 1983 version?Thanks (in case I find an original at a price I can afford one day...)

People, the Tartown label was a brilliant one off idea for a label name by J. Basquiat who funded the record and pressing. The label did not exist after the first pressing of this record. Later Tartown pressing are unquestionably unofficial fakes. That's why they attempt to look identical. Go for the Get on down pressing which is official, has good retro cover art, and will have the best sound since originals are $$$. RIP Rammellzee and Jean-Michael Basquiat.

You need to hear the instrumental on a high-end system that can deliver a deep, clear and warm soundstage with focused highs, mids and a tight bottom in order to hear and appreciate the guitar, strings and sprinkles in this production. The instrumental has more musical and crossover club appeal than the vocal, and sounds better slightly pitched up for a touch more "pace". If you know how to play downtempo club/funk music, there are a number of other classics you can follow this up with.

I used to hate this track back in the day because it was so slow compared to the electro of the time. Time has made me see the error of my ways though and I've grown to love it.http://hiphopbebop.com/2016/01/rammellzee-vs-k-rob-beat-bop.html

In the hiphop community this is claimed to be the first hiphop record ever made. It is why it is so desired. The records with lyricists from that same period of time and before fall under the catagory 'Rap'.

Tartown Records was Basquiat's label! He made friends with rappers whilst he was in LA and I believe they all sort of worked on this together. Basquiat was on the cutting edge of music and art (street art!! a huge aspect of the culture of hip-hop) in New York. It's unsurprising then that Basquiat had a large part to play in the production of this record.NOTE: Beat - Bop was a play on the term "Bebop jazz" coined(?) by Charlie Parker, who was a massive influence on Basquiat.

The artwork is done by famous painter Basquiat who passed away during the 80s. This artwork is famous and was recently repressed on limited edition vinyl box. If the record is rare, you can see you get a limited edition painting done by Basquiat. Anything with his name attached will increase price value.

Jean Michel Basquiat did the artwork. That's what initially made it a collector's item. Interesting story about this in Ego Trip's Big Book of Rap Lists.

but the other reissue has the same matrix - so how can tell the difference if someone buys it on the internet and cannot test play it?

Hi there, my copy plays at 33rpm. All the rest is same as original. Any guess?

Thanks Fred....you saved the day with this info. The seller was insistent it was an original and it also played at 45 RPM but the codes were TT001 A and TT001 B there are clearly a few undated bootleg copies around and it would have been a fairly expensive mistake to make.

The color inside the sleeve on the original press is like a cardboard brown color. On the tar town boot and rerelease the inside of the sleeve is white.
