I took my daughter here for her birthday. We had a blast flipping through used records. She settled on an album by Mac Miller and I got a rare copy of a popular hip hop bio. Owner was helpful and friendly.
Excellent record store. I let the proprietor know I've been listening to disco lately and asked for recommendations on something new. He turned me onto The Sound of Philadelphia, which is completely new to me. Definitely a knowledgeable and friendly staff. And there was a radio show going on while I was there, which was cool.
Gotta support the dopest DJ in the 757. My wife bought me an Audio-Technica for Christmas so I'm trying to step my vinyl game up. There's some gems in there, and it's def worth a visit. I'll be back to dig in the crates when I'm not on a "lunch break".
This store is excellent and a lot of fun. They even have FREE, old-school video games you can play. The record collection consists of a lot of hip-hop from the late 90's on, original records and a lot of 12-inch records. There are some older records as well and a few records in other genres of music and there is also a collection of new vinyl. The owner has a whole lot of records he hadn't put out yet. If you are looking for something and don't see it, ask. I'm from out of town and he said he would mail me some records once he found what I was looking for. The owner is also in the radio business and was doing a live show on his Internet radio station, which was dope. Fun store. I don't normally write reviews, but I have been to many record stores and this was one of the best.
The owner/DJ Bee is just an Awesome genuine welcoming dude. He makes all that visit his store feel comfortable. Hes large on 757/804 radio and further but he always humble. He'll talk with you like someone from just around the way.
