Hip-Hop radio legends Stretch & Bobbito are coming back for the culture with a new NPR podcast.
It has been 19 years since Strech Armstrong and Bobbito last touched the airwaves with their iconic radio show WKCR in New York City. But the two DJs and culture contributors are making a return this summer with a new podcast on NPR.
The new Strech & Bobbito show will talk about art, music, politics, sports, “and everything in between.”
The duo is credited for introducing us to some of the biggest stars in Hip-Hop including Nas, The Notorious B.I.G., Mobb Deep and many more. The show will obviously have a different format that what made them who they were, because the way people consume music and content has changed drastically since their 1990-1998 run. But it should still be in interesting to see what they have to offer.
NPR enjoyed some success with their first foray into Hip-Hop with Microphone Check hosted by Ali Shaheed Muhammad and Frannie Kelly. Let’s see if they can duplicate the quality.
