Just days after becoming a permanent fixture at Barclays Center, Jay Z and his burgeoning streaming service brand are expanding in the visual entertainment department.
Former Hot 97 DJ and comedian Cipha Sounds announces his latest power move. He is now a member of the Roc Nation family.
As Hip-Hop Wired reported earlier today, Cipha Sounds is done with Hot 97 after 17 years. So what’s next on his agenda?
New York’s #1 radio station Hot 97 arguably has the only cast of characters where every member are notable figures in their own right. For that, VH1 decided to cut 30 minutes out of their endless reel of reality shows and give fans and listeners alike an in-depth glimpse on what really goes on behind-the-scenes.
A little friendly competition between The Combat Jack Show and Juan Epstein, didn’t stop the former from chatting with Hot 97’s Cipha Sounds about his life before becoming a renowned Hip-Hop DJ and the events that followed.
Fifteen years ago, N.O.R.E. delivered a hell of a posse cut on behalf of his native New York City via “Banned From T.V.” Today, Hot 97’s Cipha Sounds and Drewski channel that same energy on “Banned From Radio,” featuring Maino, Bodega Bamz, Chinx, Troy Ave, Mack Wilds and City Boy Dee.
Following a snippet that hit the Internets a little over a week ago, the full episode of Juan Epstein’s discussion with Kanye West. Their discussion was a lot different than the agenda-based messaging the rapper-producer spoke in interviews with The Breakfast Club and Sway In the Morning.
We’ve seen more than enough passionate theatrics from Kanye West in the past few days, which makes his Juan Epstein sit down a nice change of pace. Unlike others, hosts Cipha Sounds and Peter Rosenberg managed to keep their conversation with West strictly about the music.
