Boston-based record label and boutique Get On Down releases a deluxe, limited edition Jean-Michel Basquiat Beat Bop Record Box, courtesy of the Basquiat Estate. Limited to 300 pieces, the vinyl-carrying case has a black leatherette exterior with plastic corner protectors, and metal hinges and clasps, and features officially licensed JMB artwork. It’s able to hold up to 50 vinyl 12-inches and comes with a handful of lifestyle images of the Box around New York City. A split-colored, black-and-white-vinyl picture-sleeve reissue 12-inch of ”Beat Bop,” by Rammellzee and K-Rob, may also be purchased with it. The 1983 hip-hop classic was produced and designed by Basquiat. The incredibly influential neo-expressionist and graffiti artist abruptly passed away at the young age of 27 in 1988. Rammellzee passed away in 2010.

Matt Welch from Get On Down explains:

“For this project, we wanted to combine our love for vinyl with the art from Rammellzee and K-Rob’s monumental hip-hop classic. The song, and Basquiat’s incredible artwork, has always held a special place in our hearts. This is our way of paying tribute to it, both musically and from a visual art perspective.”

“Beat Bop” was a one-off production that was originally released as only 500 records via Tartown Records, and remains one of hip-hop’s “Holy Grail” items (a quick search will find resale prices around $1,500, if you can find one). The picture sleeve version has never been officially re-issued until now. This sleeve will feature original artwork from the Basquiat estate.

The Jean-Michel Basquiat Beat Bop Record Box is now available for purchase online for $90 USD.
