Prince Be’s Record Collection Sale at Rappcats

Prince Be is the late co-founder, producer, and lead singer of PM Dawn. As a producer, Be worked with Timberlake & The Backstreet Boys, The Bee Gees, Earth Wind & Fire & Elton John. He was always digging and was a constant fixture at record shows, including the now legendary Roosevelt Conventions in New York City.

His record collection bears witness to this. His collection touches all genres – soul, jazz, rock and sound library records – from the common to the obscure. On the obscure, he went deep. There are the spiritual jazz records on the lauded Tribe label, the 90s-grails which have gotten no easier to source, like Dennis Coffey’s Hair and Thangs, and thousands of other albums.

Prince Be passed away in 2016. The cause was renal failure resulting from complications of diabetes.

Prince Be’s long-time friend Georges Sulmers, who issued some of Be’s music as Mood Swingaz on his Raw Shack Records imprint in the 1990s, has gone through and curated a series of records from Be’s collection that he will sell at this, the first installment of a handful of Rappcats pop-ups.

All of these records are being sold on behalf of Prince Be‘s family and come with a Rappcats card that testifies to the records’ provenance:

Saturday, September 17, Noon-6PM
Rappcats, 5638 York Blvd, Los Angeles
