The BBAS crew pays a heartfelt tribute to a hip-hop institution that’s now lost due to the changing of the music industry. Wether you feel that change is for better or worse, browsing through a well-stocked physical store with a knowledgeable staff has a magic to it that can never be replaced by clicking hyperlinks. These guys all met through Fat Beats so they’re connection to it is far deeper than mine, but even though I’ve never been to the NY location I vividly remember my disbelief when the Amsterdam branch suddenly closed it’s doors.
Glad the last of the Mohikans at my local stomping grounds is still in operation, hope it’ll remain so for a long time (Waddup Maurice?).
