Fat Beats Turns 14
Hip-hop label and retail powerhouse Fat Beats turns 14 this year, and to celebrate, the company is holding a massive sale over the weekend.
From Saturday, July 26 through Sunday, July 27, both Fat Beats NY and Fat Beats LA will offer customers 10% off all purchases, from CDs to 12"s to DVDs and t-shirts. Check the Fat Beats catalog for an in-depth look at all the hip-hop it has to offer.
Of course, it wouldn't be a proper anniversary without some parties, and a couple of in-store performances are planned for the occasion. Fat Beats NY will host Reks & Statik Selekta, Pace Won & Mr. Green, J-Live, DJ Eclipse, and others, while on the left coast, Shabba Ranks, The Alkaholiks, Shawn Jackson, Dez of Slum Village, and others will take over Fat Beats LA. Both events are set to take place on Saturday.
