Domestic Violence Dance Music

Blackman - Beat that Bitch with a Bat ( from Beat that Bitch with a Bat 12" 1993)

A mysterious dude that only put out two singles on Trax records making one of the earliest ghetto house songs. Farley did a version later but this one is definitely better. Pretty fucked up song that Slugo and others have namechecked as one of the most influential records on the Chicago stuff (and I'd guess Detroit and Baltimore too).
