Lecture: Stretch and Bobbito (San Francisco, 2012) from Red Bull Music Academy on Vimeo.
Highly recommended hour-and-a-half interview/lecture that dives into the greatest hip hop radio show of all time. Even for you long-time fans, you'll get every detail from the nervous early days when, as Stretch puts it, “at least 15 people were listening,” the classic freestyles (Big L with Jay-Z; Nas) and world premiere appearances (Wu-Tang; B.I.G.), the 4AM “Krunchtime” snap sessions – even the time a desperate listener called in seeking legal counsel from Bob after allegedly bucking someone down. Also discussed: why the show eventually ran its course (and episodes of playing records the other person wouldn’t like to piss him off), moving on from hip-hop, and how this particular broadcast with all its quirks and mystique will forever represent a classic New York City sensibility.
Raggedy Man, eh?
Catch dope Raggedy Man verses here..
That's a good one.
Legends! but I can't imagine Primo or Pete Rock playing house music now or later #Keep it real
Hey Mos..By that thinking you must not be a fan of DJ Spinna or Kenny Dope..#Keep it open minded and eclectic
Or how about J.Rocc?
Does it really matter what music people like? It's like saying, "OMG, I can't believe Pete Rock likes asparagus! Asparagus is wack!". It's just personal taste.
I hear you guys but Kenny Dope and DJ Spinna were playing house and hip hop from day one. For Dj's that have made their name from underground hip hop and didn't play any other genre during that period to abandon hip hop seems wrong to me.
#Artist keep it real so should DJ's
I think Mos has a point there. Personally, it's getting kind of old to hear many of these deejays becoming too cool for hip hop. I understand growth, maturity, and getting into different genres of music. But if you are a true member of the culture, you take the culture and music with you as you grow. You don't act like you're too cool for school. I'm not saying S&B are doing that, but a lot of hip hop deejays that we all admire are giving off the impression that playing hip hop is so 1990's.
