Beat Bop Record Box
This item starts shipping mid October.

This Beat Bop Record Box includes officially licensed artwork from Jean-Michel Basquiat on a premium record carrying case. Only 1,000 of the record carry case exist and will never be produced again after this run.

Holding up to 50 records, this ultra-sturdy record case, with an interior tiled with Basquiats famous crown logo, is a true and literal work of art, covered in classic images from the original Tartown Records version of the 1983 classic hip-hop track Beat Bop.

The original vinyl issue of Beat Bop by Rammellzee and K-Rob – which is the inspiration for the Box – has been heard by many, but held by few. Only a reputed 500 of the songs initial run, on Jean-Michel Basquiats one-off Tartown Records label, were made with jacket cover art by the infinitely influential graphic artist (and moonlighting musician and producer). They remain one of hip-hops Holy Grail items, selling north of $1,500 if you can even find one. The audio, which clocked in at over 10 minutes, was issued – with no picture sleeve – on Profile Records soon after the Tartown pressings, and went on to influence countless MCs, with its minimal, languishing funk beat (produced by Basquiat) and Rammellzees and K-Robs next-level lyricism.

Jean-Michel Basquiat passed away in 1988 and Rammellzee left this Earth in 2010. With this Record Box, Get On Down celebrates and remembers Basquiats important contributions to the formative years of hip-hop, visually and on wax. And besides being a trophy piece, the Box is a vision of ultilitarianism, which will keep your most previous wax safe for years to come.
