Black Friday Record Store Day Exclusive! First official repress of this hip hop holy grail from Rammellzee and K-Rob, with some help from Jean Michel Basquiat on cover art! According to Ego Trip, this is the most expensive hip hop records of all time. The Basquiat cover is probably one of the main reasons why this piece flosses, but it's definitely more than just the cover. It has an interesting story behind it where Rammelzee battled Basquiat on the mic, but ultimately dropped him from the recording. The beats are pretty experimental for back then, and Rammelzee's nasal rhyme style was definitely the grandpapa of B-Real and the Beasties. A cool piece of hip-hop history resurrected on split black and white vinyl complete with four-panel folded insert with deep background on the original single's creation, plus interviews with many of the artists involved: Rammellzee, K-Rob, Glenn O'Brien, percussionist Al Diaz, Profile's Cory Robbins and more. Instrumental on the b-side. Limited to 1983 copies, recommended.
