Where can I find this shirt?
⏱ 7 YEARS AGO ⏱

Re-share from Optiks, who reminded me that this trip was 7 years ago! This photo also got shared semi-recently when the Fifth Element physical store in Minneapolis closed its doors permanently. From left-to-right are Myself + SeanDammit + IMAKEMADBEATS + MidaZ The Beast + Optiks + TzariZM outside of the storefront, either pre or post Soundset. Good times & so many good performances, including a Blueprint show we drove out to the night prior. *Sighs & stares blankly into space about time flying by* 😳

The Ain Dah Yung Center would like to express extreme gratitude to Rhymesayers Entertainment and Fifth Element who have been a staple in the local hip hop community for over 20 years in the Twin Cities.

Chi Miigwetch to David Boettger (Fulfillment Coordinator) and Skye Rossi (Senior Vice President), for the kind donation of brand new sweatshirts, t-shirts, hats, backpacks and various art supplies which will be gifted to youth across all of our programs.
One of the last Fifth Element "Open Mic" with CMJ -
U would of had to been there to understand
- I miss Performing 😪
Really enjoyed the review on the early (pre-"Baby Got Back") Sir Mix-A-Lot work..."I'm a Trip" was really an amazing work of art that artistically combined the west coast electro dance sound with a hard b-boy edge. ✌️
Don't stop, please. I only just joined :/
As The Current said best, “for two decades, Fifth Element was a hub of activity in the Twin Cities rap scene.”

It feels surreal that the store that was so much more than just a retail store is now closed. But with the end of one great thing comes the birth of something new. Rhymesayers keeps growing and the artists continue to create new works of art for all of us to enjoy! It has been a pleasure to be a part of the Fifth Element journey and can’t wait to see what is next for Rhymesayers.

@ Twin City Tees
Fifth Element wasn't just a record store, it was a community hub.
Sad to see an institution like Fifth Element closing. Shout out to Slug from Atmosphere for letting us shoot our "Leftovers" video there! Thanks for the memories.

is shutting down and it made me so sad.. I never got to see their shop, even when I went to Minnesota. I went to the Mall Of America but I didn't know they were cool as hell. I regret not going to that street and seeing it. Now That they declared they are shutting down (DAMNIT) I pre-ordered an OG shirt & hoodie. Because it was in my heart how much I loved em, they supported all my favorite artists and were so cool on twitter. I regret NOTHING >:( Fu***ng peace & LOVE you HEROS! Pre-Ordered a hoodie and Tee of the OG FifthElement Logo. Man...I love you guys. This sucks..
UK | Record Store Of The Day campaign launched to shine spotlight on indie stores: / Minneapolis, MN | Fifth Element, record store owned by Rhymesayers to close down / Brighton & Hove, UK | The History of Brighton & Hove Record Shops–The Directory / Norfolk, NE | The beat goes on at Lefty's Records / Lockdown sends album sales to an all-time low but vinyl stays strong / Wallingford, WA | Dean Silverstone, wrestling promoter and beloved record store owner, dies at 73—more.

In rotation: 3/31/20.
As Fifth Element says goodbye, we’re thankful for the overwhelming flow of love and appreciation pouring in. Many of you have been asking about commemorative merch to carry on the legacy. We felt a great way to celebrate the store’s history and offer you a keepsake of the memories is by breathing life back into one of the store’s original designs! For a very limited time, we will take pre-orders for the exclusive Fifth Element “OG” T-Shirt and Hoodie.

These pre-orders will be taken until the end of day March 31st. This will be a one-time print and your only chance to get these, so grab your OG gear now and represent. Fifth Element forever!

Ten years ago, Brother Ali released the full-length album, Us. During a defining moment in his career, Ali utilized his platform and reach to share stories from within his community to shine light on their struggles, and bring about hope and support. Social, economic, and personal tales were woven into Ant's captivating production, and together, they produced an album that has withstood the test of time. We are re-pressing the vinyl and including a 7-inch with two bonus tracks for the anniversary.
