Rammellzee & K-Rob – Beat Bop (1983)

Taken from 1983 12 inch on Tartown Records –

A slice of old school rap / hip-hop for a Sunday afternoon!

From Wiki  –

“Beat Bop” is a hip hop single by American rappers Ramellzee and K-Rob, originally released in 1983 by record label Tartown. Initially distributed merely as a test pressing, it is notable for being theme of hip hop culture documentary film Syle Wars and having a cover designed by famed New York Graffiti artist Jean-Michael 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 modern experimental hip hop artists due to its chaotic, abstract sound, and, due to the rarity of its original pressing, has been called the Holy Grail of rap records.”
