Located on Church Avenue between Utica Avenue and E 49th Street in Flatbush, the record store was probably most infamous for being the scene of a shooting incident between deejays Super Cat and Glen Augustus Holness, otherwise known by his stage name Nitty Gritty,
on June 24, 1991.
Many allege that the bloody episode saw Super Cat being quicker on the draw,
and Nitty Gritty ending up dead on the floor.
This version was never proven and Super Cat was acquitted of all charges
