Jean-Michel Basquiat’s Beat Bop recording

Unbeknown to many, the tragically brilliant American artist, Jean-Michel Basquiat, who set the art world alight with his neo-expressionist work before dying of an overdose in 1988, also produced a hip hop track of some note, collaborating with fellow graffiti artist Rammellzee under the mindful direction of the legendary Fab 5 Freddy. The resulting track, Beat Bop, is a spicy window into New York in the early 1980s.
