I’m in LA right now, actually on my way to SLC tonite. And of course, I had to make a stopover at Fat Beats LA …
As you should all know by now, Fatbeats NYC and Fatbeats LA will cease to exist in a Few Weeks, Marking an END to An ERA… one that is very near and dear to me as a fan and as a member of the Hip Hop Community.
I had to make sure to take in all the history of the LA store and capture bits and pieces of it for myself to remember when its gone…
If these walls could speak…. The Hip Hop history here is overwhelming… From Dr. Dre, to Q-bert… they’re signatures are all up on these walls.
Its only fitting, that this next promo piece is up here in the LA store…
Now as previously stated… 5th Platoon Crew was born out of Fat Beats.
As time has gone on, we’ve all gone in different directions. Kuttin Kandi is out in San Diego, DJ Do Boy is conquering the corporate world, Daddy Dog is off on a Ship right now DJing, I.Emerge is off making his mark on music , Vinroc is on the production tip out in San Fran….
I haven’t performed with my old crewmates in A VERY LONG TIME…. I think maybe 6 years ago I would say.
Those of you who have been following me know that I’ve been kind of busy bringing up my own brand to the level that its currently at;)
I think its an appropriate time for the 5th Platoon to ride for one last time for Fat Beats.
SEPTEMBER 3rd Friday
FROM 5-6 PM
DJ Neil Armstrong and DJ Roli Rho perform
5th Platoon returns to the turntables
The Fatbeats Closing Schedule.
Unfortunately the rest of the crewmates are spreadout all over the place, so its just gonna be myself and Roli Rho this time around, 2 of the 3 original founding members of the DJ Collective known as the 5th Platoon. And we will be bringing ya’ll back with some classic routines…
In nyc, performances are going on ALL WEEK… SO PLEASE COME THRU TO SEND OFF THE STORE IN STYLE!
