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.

A chance to contribute to the film that documents the contribution of two Hip-Hop radio icons. Man, Scarface was just talking about Stretch & Bobbito during that last radio interview we just posted here. Talk about full circle!

Peace! Stretch and Bobbito here, 25 years after our first WKCR broadcast. We’re amped to share the history of our landmark show in a feature length documentary titled STRETCH AND BOBBITO: RADIO THAT CHANGED LIVES ( The film, produced by Omar Acosta, was co-produced by us with Kool Bob Love directing and Stretchy music supervising.
