The original location of Fat Beats launched on July 14, 1994 which means FB just turned 20 years old! Business was doing so well 2 years in that Joseph Abajian decided to move the store from it’s small 9th St. basement space into a 2nd floor location on 6th Avenue. August 1996 was the grand opening of the 406 6th Avenue location. It was also the beginnings of their independent movement, which had recently started bubbling about a year before. Watch the above footage of Kanye West before he blew up.
