I Remain Indelible

by Mr. LeN

I just got my bummer news for the day. The record store that supported indie hip hop acts for over a decade now is closing shop. Fat Beats' NY and LA stores have finally thrown in the towel. Internet you crafty son of a bitch you win again.

It's said that "things" happen in cycles. In order for a trend or style to cycle it has to die first. Not sure that's the case with indie hip hop record stores hopefully I'll be around if it does happen again. This is for you Fat Beats. Thanks for the memories and support. Some of us would never have known what it was like to sell records in NY had it not been for that store. Truly the end of an era.
