We Just got back from the hottub in the Pouring Rain and Lightning and it reminded me of the day’s when me and my friends would sneak into hot tubs and get sh*tfaced while listening to blackmoon & Aceyalone.. Wordlife

Fat Beats NY and LA closed late last year, which was a tale of the times considering physical records/CD sales were plummeting and big shops like Tower and HMV were shuttering then. The store on the 2nd floor at 6th Ave. was a mecca for hip hop aficionados and artists of that time. I remember picking up records when I passed through NY. For some reason, I always remember this one, which is ironic given that Brooklyn is the place of their very relaunch: “I Try” - Talib Kweli feat. Mary J. Blige.
