Back in 1983, a documentary was released that would change hip-hop from an American obsession to a global phenomena. Styles Wars redefined the possibilities that music could have to unite people of all walks of life. It put the Bronx and New York City on the world stage of dance. In the midst of this monumental step for Hip-Hop, there was a young artist taking the world by storm. His name was Jean-Michael Basquiat and he would be known as one of the greatest contemporary artist of all time. “Beat Bop” is the title of the documentary’s theme song, it was created by MCs Rammellzee and K-Rob. The art scene in New York City during the ‘80s ran in small circles. It is rumored that then popular MC, Rammellzee created the theme song with intentions to make it a battle record against Basquiat. Jean-Michael’s lack of clever lines resulted in the duo getting into heated debates that ultimately led to settling on not having Basquiat featured vocally, but instead visually through the tracks cover art. Due to the rarity of its original pressing, it has been called the Holy Grail of rap records. The artwork that resulted from this collaboration is what I referenced to create the fabric pattern. I hope you enjoy the fabric as much as I do!Grab your’s today! Crowned Beats
