RAMMELLZEE vs. K ROB: Beat Bop repress (Vinyl 12″)

RAMMELLZEE vs. K ROB:  Beat Bop (Vinyl 12Back at the dawn of hip-hop, heads thought nothing of dropping ten minute tracks with no clearly-defined verse/ chorus structure and such an animal was the Jean-Michel Basquiat-financed, Rammellzee and K Rob-featuring early psychedelic hip-hop epic, Beat Bop, which first appeared in 1983.

Which also happen to be devastatingly on-trend (given the imminent
