Fat Beats founder Joe Abajian explains how Fat Beats will live on in the aftermath of it’s retail stores closing. The new venture will exist as a “pop-up shop”, a monthly event which will section off a piece of their Brooklyn warehouse for customers to come in and purchase product. “FB BK will be reminiscent of the atmosphere and energy that the NY and LA stores once exuded. We have DJs of note spinning throughout the day, such as DJ Evil Dee, DJ Spinna, and Rich Medina,” Joe told The Village Voice. The first event takes place March 5th from noon to 8pm.

hza HZA   Hala

Najnoviji Hamzin uradak. Pjesma Hala jedna je od njegovih pjesama koje su urađene između starog, i novog albuma koji je u pripremi. Čisti kvartovski feeling u priči tipičnoj za našeg dvometraša, opušteno i funky. Svoj drugi album HZA najavljuje u istoj postavi, sa producentom CJ-tom koji je radio većinu beatova i produkciju na prvom. Ova pjesma će se na novom albumu naći na novom beatu, a pored nje možemo očekivati i novu verziju pjesme Hajmo Ih Rušit’, u Hamazovoj verziji (Hajmo Se Spušit’).

Another hidden gem from the Blackout Radio show archives. The RZA, Masta Killa, Beretta 9 (Killarmy) & Tekitha came by Radio 101, they “kidnapped” and “locked” the Blackout Radio host Phat Phillie in the closet and took over the show for 2 hours. Here’s the 25 minute freestyle they rocked at the end of the show accompanied by Croatia’s finest, General Woo.
Enjoy!
This was recorded on March 18th, 2003.
