Meeting Legendary Radio Hosts Stretch & Bobbito | Sole DXB 2015

I been a huge fan of the Stretch and Bobbito show for quite some time. I loved their story. I loved their passion. I love the fact that they hosted artists just to support & expose talent. From 1990 till 1998, they hosted The Stretch Armstrong & Bobbito show in WKCR. It featured exclusive demo tapes and in-studio freestyles from many then-unsigned Hip-Hop artists such as Nas, Big Pun, Jay-Z, Busta, Fat Joe, DMZ, Wu-Tang Clan, Talib Kweli, Big L & The Notorious B.I.G who later found great success on major record labels! 

In 1998, The Source names The Stretch & Bobbito Show as the "Best Hip-Hop Radio Show of All time". For me, it was an honor connecting with them, watching their amazing documentary. You Can watch the Trailer HERE 

Being the host of Saudi's first & only FM Hip-Hop radio show is very difficult & challenging given that I had to go & still going through a lot to make the show done on a weekly basis. By meeting them, I felt re-energized, re-focused. 

Big up to Sole DXB & Cinema Akil for this amazing accomplishment. It was Stretch & Bobbito's firs time to the Middle-East & I one was very proud to meet them.

I am currently working on having the documentary screening in KSA. :) #FingerCrossed it works!
