Description

:

Jean-Michel Basquiat's early success and recognition became known as a "post-graffiti" style of artwork, and earned him a place of connections and respect with many social circles in New York's downtown culture. Friendships were formed between Basquiat and key figures in the new culture of hip-hop. Collaborations with the artist were highly regarded, and from this, Fab-5 Freddy, a contemporary of Basquiat's, arranged one with Rammelzee for the promo sleeve of "Beat-Bop". The promo sleeve is one of many examples of the organized simplicity, symbolism, and use of text in Basquiat's smaller works, with the record reflecting what much of early hip-hop became. Published by Tartown Record Co., New York.
