In September 2010, Blame One hit J57 up via twitter when he heard that the legendary NYC record store and hip-hop cultural icon Fat Beats was closing its doors, knowing that’s where J57 worked, to tell him he was sorry to hear the sad news. They immediately clicked and linked up for a project. Fast-forward to 2013 and they give you the “Walk in the Sun” LP.
