History

Fifth Element is an independent Hip Hop retail store based in Minneapolis, Minnesota, founded in 1999. Beyond acting as the official Rhymesayers online and retail store, Fifth Element has also established itself over the years as one of the primary foundations for all your Hip Hop needs: CDs, Digital Sales, Vinyl, Art Supplies, Clothing, DVDs, Specialty Items, and more.

In 2005 we expanded by adding the online store. Initially focused as the official online store for Rhymesayers products, over the years has slowly expanded the catalog to a wider range of products.

Along with the store upgrade we have also added, for current lack of a better word, a blog. However, this is much more than your typical blog. There will be in-depth interviews with artists dating back to the pioneers, up to the newest up and comers. There will also be album reviews, movie reviews, Hip Hop history, Graf, Community/Social/Political issues, a Cooking Show, Lyrical analyzing, and much more!

Independent since day one.
