6. Rammellzee "Beat Bop" (1983)
Producer: Jean-Michel Basquiat
Label: Profile Records
Outside of producing great art, Jean-Michel Basquiat can be credited for this classic old-school cut. Famed graffiti artist Rammellzee basically had a beef with Basquiat, claiming he was a fraud, and the two were supposed to battle on the track. But when him and fellow rapper K-Rob heard Basquiat's rhymes, they reportedly crumpled up his paper and took on the instrumental themselves. Fab 5 Freddy oversaw the session, and Basquiat is said to have merely paid for the studio time. Still, he got production credit on the track. Maybe Rammellzee was right about that whole fraud thing?
