It’s a sad sad week. Longtime supporters of Om and friends, Fat Beats has announced that they are closing their New York and Los Angeles locations. The indie hip hop retailer was once a mecca for a massive collection of beats ranging from mainstream to the underground. They were the go to people for anything hip hop related. The NYC store is closing on September 4th and the Los Angeles store on September 18th.
Fat Beats definitely held it strong. Mad love for Mark, Chris, Johnny, and the rest of the Fat Beats retail crew!
