      Local record store labeled it " "Butch" Lesbian Disco Hip/Hop! ", so of course I bought it. No regrets.

        Another testament to how surprisingly diverse the first few years of rap music on vinyl were, this is (to my knowledge) Philadelphia's first rap record. "To The Beat Y'all" is also alleged to be the first rap record released by a woman. Tidily, TEC Records released this rap over Direct Current's "Everyone Here Must Party", a nice funky disco piece which they also released earlier that year. Extra points for this record where Lady B chides another woman for not taking birth control pills, a notable bit of feminism for a style that was to become hypermasculine within 5 years. Disco mainstay Nick Martinelli did the mix, Lady B went onto became an on-air radio personality and major rap music advocate in Philly, and this record is yet another beautiful piece of 1979 where disco and rap were the same thing.
