Stretch & Bobbito – Final/20th Anniversary Show

Last night was an iconic night for hip-hop.  The Stretch Armstrong & Bobbito show reunited for a final hurrah before the doors were closed.  They went to their original time slot (1am to 5am EST) with a few homies, then kept it going for one more hour. They did what they normally did on the show – busted out jokes, played freestyles, and ridiculed callers.  Combat Jack & DP, who were doing their radio show on Thursday night, even called in – it was that big.  By 2am (PST), the internets, hip-hop heads, and fellow DJs were on their laptops listening to show.  It was a familiar feeling to listen to a radio show with your friends in the late night, feeling you were the only ones privy to this culture.  There was a dope twitter discussion between Platurn, Matthew Africa, Byze One and myself about the impact (or lack of) the show had on the West Coast.  Props to Ivan Rott for the stream.  Shout out to the West Coast Radio pioneers – KDAY, Wake Up Show, & Friday Night Flavas.  Salute to AtotheL & Fool’s Good for the content.

Turntablelab posted an interview that NY’s Eli Escobar did with Stretch Armstrong a few months ago.  Along with Mr. Magic’s show, Strecth & Bobbito could have had the most strongest influence on hip-hop – in regards to what radio could accomplish for the culture.  He drops some gems about Mobb Deep and other people that visited the show. For those that actually read KTl – all 25 of you (we’re moving up!), there is a audio treat in the form of a link at the end of the interview.

Stretch Armstrong – Interview w/ Gasface

Stretch Armstrong reminisces in this interview about the creation of the “Stretch and Bobbito Show” that was a platform and pivotal breaking point for many up and coming MCs. Its crazy to hear him talk about how many unsigned people came to his show just to be “put on”. Enjoy. Spotted at NR.
