I was on vacation and had this spot pegged for a visit. It was a little tough to find but well worth it when I got there. Small but impressive selection-you just don't find many stores like this on the East Coast (thanks for tip on Cratediggerz in Philly). Prices are fair- it's not cheap but the product is not readily available. If you love hip hop, you have to go.
First time in the shop but I can't say enough about FIVESPACE. A music boutique that packs a punch. If you are looking for hip-hop/rap vinyl then this is the place for you! I'm talking about early hip hop like Grandmaster Flash and Kurtis Blow to modern classics from Kendrick and Freddie Gibbs. Vinyl, CDs, cassettes, bootlegs, original pressings, t-shirts...EVERYTHING you are looking for. And if you don't see it in the shop, all you have to do is ask and there's a chance the shop can get it for you! Plus they have a selection of other genres as well - R&B, soul, funk, rock and even a little country sprinkled in. So stoked to have found this shop and can't wait to go back!
Finally! The perfect record store in a tiny (but functional) space... We searched almost every record store in San Diego for a decent hip-hop and rap selection. It was a total bust until we found the spot. Rare, used, and hard to find... All here. Not to mention a cassette collection like I haven't seen since the 80s! We spent a pretty penny but found a lot of albums we've been searching for. And great staff to boot. If you're looking for these genres just do yourself a favor and go here first!
Wow, what a gem!!! Amazing collection and the owner is so knowledgeable and kind. This is definitely gonna be a go-to spot when I’m in town!
The most expensive used records (that are not rare or hard to find or out of print) in the history of the world. There is no question that they will have any hip hop album you are looking for. But the average price for a used record is $65 and up. We aren’t talking about the first Beatles or Elvis album here. This is hip hop. Any true hip hop head should be outraged by these price. Unreal!!
