Stretch Armstrong and Bobbito Garcia, collectively known as Stretch and Bobbito, co-hosted the legendary The Stretch Armstrong and Bobbito Show from 1990 to 1998 on New York’s WKCR. The dynamic duo are currently preparing to release a 90-minute documentary of their adventures, and are using Kickstarter to raise funds and offer fans some amazing perks for their contributions.
Stretch and Bobbito launched their Kickstarter campaign on Aug. 14 for the Stretch and Bobbito: Radio That Changed Lives documentary, already smashing their $50,000 goal with five more days and several gift packs to go. For the young folks who never heard of the legendary on-air personalities, the pair hosted one of the most-revered late night college radio Hip-Hop shows.
Among the several stars Stretch and Bobbito helped break includes Jay Z, Nas, the late legends Big Pun and Big L and the Notorious B.I.G. among several others.
Here’s a description from Stretch and Bobbito’s website:
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 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 offbeat humor just as much for the exclusive tunes. Stretch and Bobbito brought a unique audience together, and created a platform that changed music forever.
Head over to their Kickstarter page and put down what you can afford to support what could end up being one of the best Hip-Hop documentaries of all time. Only five days left to fund to contribute so make it quick!
