Stretch And Bobbito On Housing Early Hip-Hop Radio, Nas, Wu-Tang & Their Latest Project

They knew the big names BEFORE they got big; because they big-upped them when they were unsigned! YES!

But see. It gets deeper. We should be supporting College, Community, and Indie radio right now! For real, for the REAL! I always have. MY people are there. I bet you can find YOUR people there, too #HitMyInbox #LetMeHipYouToSomeRealRadio #ExcuseMe #HistoryMakingRadio

Stretch And Bobbito: Radio That Changed Lives (Trailer)

Well, the Kickstarter Fundraising Campaign obviously went well. And now (drum roll), click play above for the trailer for “Stretch And Bobbito: Radio That Changed Lives.”

During the 1990s, Stretch and Bobbito introduced the world to an unsigned Nas, Biggie, Wu-Tang, and Big Pun as well as an unknown Jay-Z, Eminem, and The Fugees. The total record sales for all the artists that premiered on their radio show exceed 300 million. The late night program had a cult following in the art/fashion world and prison population as well. All would loyally tune in for the humor just as much for the exclusive tunes. Stretch and Bobbito brought a unique audience together, and created a platform that changed music forever.

The movie will be available via Vimeo On Demand on October 22, 2015. Hit the link to pre-order.
