News: Fat Beats Closing NYC and L.A. Retail Stores



It's with a heavy heart that I report this saddening news...Over the years Fat Beats has churned out some of my favorite releases and has always been a reliable source to cop the best new and older underground/Indie Hip-Hop on wax. They're one of the few businesses that's managed to live up to it's lofty goal set upon inception: that being simply to be the "international Mecca for true lovers of Hip Hop".

Today after a 16 year run as one of the best in the game doin what they do, Fat Beats NYC and Fat Beats L.A. will be closing their doors...Of course we all know the culprit for these occurrences and your typing on it right now...(the Internet and downloading silly, not the computer).

It's not all gloom and doom however...Fat Beats will remain in business when it comes to online retail, the Fat Beats music label and as a whole sale distributor. Not only that, but both retail stores are going to go out in style; leading up to both of the closing dates (New York: September 4th, Los Angeles: September 18th, respectively) there will be a bunch of blowout sales of merchandise and some parties...

props to DJ Eclipse for always holding the Fat Beats NYC store down...
