Record Label: Anticon
It happened in Berkeley. There was a beat. Then there were rhymes. Then cuts. Three dudes came together to do what they do best -- lay it down, kill shit, make an album. And that's what C.A.R. is: a record of the work that went down at three points between the dawn of 2009 and the close of 2011 at a place called Burnco, the cottage studio of Anticon aural wizard Odd Nosdam. Chicago rapper Serengeti was in town crashing on Jel's couch (that's it on the cover), and each day he and his beat-making host would grab a cup of joe and hoof it over to Nosdam's. Two would chill in the backyard while the third did his thing. One would mellow in the backyard while the two did their thing. Three would cool out in the backyard while listening to their thing. Each man a master of his field, they trusted each other to make the songs good, and they are. C.A.R. fits together just right. Eleven tracks, one interlude, twenty-nine and a half minutes. WHY?'s Yoni Wolf co-produces a song. Dee from Thee More Shallows helps out on another. Daddy Kev mastered the thing. Jel rapped once, scratched a ton of wax, and co-produced the beats with Nosdam, who mixed it too. Geti rhymed a bunch. They had fun. They made C.A.R. You can have it.

International tourists and touring artists alike flocked to Fat Beats for rare vinyl, kindred spirits, and exclusive in-store performances from Jay Z, Eminem, Gang Starr, Outkast, Slum Village, Mos Def, and more. One thing was clear: the Fat Beats phenomenon could no longer be contained in a single basement shop.
In the late nineties, Abajian proceeded to open new stores in Amsterdam, Tokyo, Los Angeles, and Atlanta. He further expanded the company’s profile to include global distribution and record label branches. Distribution has since proven to be the company’s strongest and most enduring enterprise. Today Fat Beats Distribution stands poised as one of the country’s pre-eminent distributors of vinyl & specialty item records: a proud survivor in an industry now famous for its mortality rate. Despite market fluctuations, technology innovations, and stylistic revolutions, Fat Beats has remained steadfast in its commitment to the timeless vinyl format and to the loyal community who keeps it spinning.
