San Martians searching for a hip-hop store with the latest music and apparel should look no further than The Spot.
The Spot opened in June 2014. Gabriel Gutiérrez, owner, hopes the store will be a mainstay in the community for many years to come.
The San Marcos native has been a die-hard rap fanatic since the late ‘80s. Gutiérrez’s older brother introduced him to the music by bringing home the latest records when they were growing up.
Gutiérrez followed his brother’s lead and paid closer attention to rap. He eventually discovered Tupac Shakur, who serves as his greatest influence to this day.
