The show, formatted in segments, attempts to bring to you Hip Hop in a medium similar to 60 Minutes or even ESPN’s Sportscenter. The multi-segmented show is fast paced and full of content found nowhere else in Hip-Hop radio whether terrestrial or via satellite. Our first broadcast was November 23, 2009 on Pacifica Network’s WBAI 99.5 FM in New York City.
In this inaugural newsletter, I will introduce the staff as well as an outline of the shows various segments. In the upcoming newsletters, I will provide updated information regarding guests, special announcements, fund drives, and information for submitting music.
The show is hosted by none other than Chuck D of the legendary rap group Public Enemy. His in-depth analysis of the Hip-Hop terrain is not only insightful but very necessary as we are fighting an uphill battle for the minds and souls of a Hip Hop audience that is constantly being barraged by a commercial onslaught of mediocrity.
Chuck provides the shows’ Introduction piece and Epilogue as well as the “Songs That Mean Something,” and “This Week In Hip-Hop History” segments.
Strong Island ‘s finest Wildman Steve provides co-host duties and is a legend himself spending years breaking artists on Adelphi University’s WBAU in Strong Island . Wildman Steve is responsible for the “Songs In The Right Direction” segment as well as moderating the ground-breaking “Spit Your Mind” segment.
