Fat Beats Founder Joe Abajian On The Store’s Legacy

November 4, 2010

LA Stereo TV interviews Fat Beats owner and founder Joe Abajian to talk about how and why he started the business in July of 1994. Joe talks about how as a business student he first conceived of the idea for Fat Beats and how the store ultimately became known as a premier independent retailer.


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

I was always like whatever I got for free I gave out for free.

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.
