Rhymesayers Entertainment, an independent hip-hop record label based in Minneapolis, said their Fifth Element record store is closing permanently on their Instagram page.

The store was opened in 1999 in Uptown. Fifth Element will officially close its doors on April 1.


"Last year, while discussing our next steps for 2020 and the coming decade, we began developing some creative new strategies to better serve the needs for our artists and our community, and we're excited to begin this work," the post read, in part.
