RSD 2014 Record Store Day / Black Friday: Hip Hop/Jazz/Soul Releases (LIST)


Most of us will be falling off the couch on Thanksgiving and not trying to do shit except sleep off the mashed potatoes and gravy. Others will be freezing their asses off waiting in lines and dealing with crowds to get something at a ridiculously low price. I’ve seen some sorry ass muthafuggas standing in line for hours to score a couple DVDs for $1. Fuck all that though, it really isn’t worth it. Vinyl collectors on the other hand have a special reason to go easy on the food and drinks. They must keep a clear head for the cyberadventure that awaits them. Record Store Day now comes twice a year with the 2nd installment being on Black Friday. Record collectors and vinyl junkies alike will be testing the speed of their computers and fighting each other online for the chance to own some of the rarest records to drop this year.
I’ve took it upon myself to create a list of all the dope stuff that is dropping (with pictures) for all my fellow wax hoarders and groove junkies. By now, if you call yourself a collector you should be stashing small amounts of scratch away for these type of days. As always shouts to my fammo over at Get On Down for constantly being creative with their releases and keeping guys like me on my toes.


Rammelzee V. K-Rob
Beat Bop

Format: 12″ Vinyl
Label: Get On Down
Catalog: Traffic
Release type: RSD Exclusive Release
More Info:
The original issue of the 1983 song “Beat Bop” by lyricists Rammellzee and K-Rob has been heard by many, but held by few. Only a reputed 500 of the song’s initial run, on Jean-Michel Basquiat’s one-off Tartown Records label, were made with jacket cover art by the infinitely influential graphic artist (and moonlighting musician and producer). They remain one of hip-hop’s “holy grail” items. The audio, which clocked in at over 10 minutes, was issued–with no picture sleeve–on Profile Records soon after the Tartown pressings and went on to influence countless MCs, with its minimal, languishing funk beat (produced by Basquiat) and Rammellzee’s and K-Rob’s next-level lyricism. The picture sleeve version has never been officially re-issued, and this edition, curated by hip-hop historian Noah Uman, goes the extra mile. It features officially licensed original artwork from the Basquiat estate and a four-panel folded insert with deep backgroun on the original single’s creation, compiled by Andrew “Noz” Nosnitsky–including interviews with many of the artists involved with its production: Rammellzee, K-Rob, Glenn O’Brien, percussionist Al Diaz, Profile’s Cory Robbins and more. Rammellzee left this earth in 2010 and Basquiat passed away in 1988–with deluxe reissue, their important contributions to the formative years of hip-hop on wax are remembered and celebrated.
