Check out Eminem’s “Fall”, a diss track aimed at anyone who dared question his greatness as a rapper, the musical equivalent of a Monster Energy drink. Great sound to recharge for the weekend!

The Stretch Armstrong and Bobbito Show

In the early ’90s, few radio stations embraced hip-hop like “The Stretch Armstrong and Bobbito Show.” Their time on-air started as a college radio hobby for two hip-hop obsessives, but this was New York City’s so-called golden age, and the show quickly became a mecca for young artists looking to cut their teeth live on air.

This documentary’s interviews tell the story: Jay Z, Nas, Raekwon, Busta Rhymes—the list goes on, each artist indelibly changed by their time on-air with Stretch and Bobbito. From interviewing a 16-year-old Christopher Wallace to introducing Nas to the world before Illmatic, rap’s history book owes these two a paragraph or two. This doc is the proof, a long-deserved victory lap for two of music’s unsung heroes.
