Everything is the same in hip-hop, just like it is in business.

  1. respect to Joe for starting fat beats and all they’ve done for hip-hop. they play a big role in our business (sales, video content, etc), and i’ll always appreciate them for that. while they’re obviously still in biz and have a strong enough web presence, i hope in some way that they bounce back, and at least secure some physical presence in other retail locations.
