The art of DJ’ing lives on through Serato, but for purists who prefer vinyl things just got a little tougher.  Fat Beats record store was a staple of hip-hop in NYC (as well as in LA and Amsterdam) and it closed its doors forever (or at least in that location…) on Saturday, 9/4.  In honor of what the store represented, several well-known DJs turned up to celebrate its legacy on its last day.  Below is DJ Premier’s tribute:
