SORT BY Relevancy
NOTE: We'll be paying respect to ASAP Yams on tonight's show as well, and talking about the Jay-Z/Hot 97 purchase rumor. The following was written before all that.
Hip hop radio.
It's a topic we've touched on before, paricularly in regards to New York's iconic Hot 97 and their lack of support for local artists, or the hip hop community at large.
Hot 97 remains at the center of the discussion, in part because of their iconic status, but also in part because of their stubborn insistence that they be considered the "voice" of hip hop, even though much of their actions point in the opposite direction, and are even hurtful to the music and culture that made them what they are.
We'll talk biting the hip hop hand that feeds them, and what might be going on at the station. A flurry of high profile and loyal departtures, new, out-of-town personnel with little to no hip hop radio experience, and a heated on-area airing out of Jay Z by once-prominent Funkmaster Flex has many of us who watch the industry perplexed.
Is Hot 97 on the verge of a complete collapse, format switch, or something else entirely unexpected? Will they ever be more than a typical 2015 rap radio station that plays a forumlaic playlist and doesn't take any responsibility for helping to negatively affect the music and culture that made many of them rich?
Perhaps they'll fall off completely and change to the radio "format of the day," classic hip hop! It's a format that many stations are rushing to change to, but our show host Manny Faces feels it's actually bad for hip hop, and likely to fail.
Feel free to call with your thoughts. Do you listen to Hot 97? What do you think is missing, if anything? Are you an old-school head? Are you excited about the classic format idea?
Tune in and participate. It's NY's hip hop talk radio, and it's all about YOU!

Join B with the SNKB wednesday edition.
We will be covering discussions while enjoying that good Classic hip hop music.
However mean your life is, meet it and live it; do not shun it and call it hard names. It is not so bad as you are. It looks poorest when you are richest. The fault-finder will find faults even in paradise. Love your life, poor as it is. You may perhaps have some pleasant, thrilling, glorious hours, even in a poorhouse. The setting sun is reflected from the windows of the almshouse as brightly as from the rich man's abode; the snow melts before its door as early in the spring. I do not see but a quiet mind may live as contentedly there, and have as cheering thoughts, as in a “sunset and evening star hunching and bending sleeping and slipping virus pneumonia coughing and crying hope in the small things heaven looks brighter aching and falling earth is still darkness slip into sleeping sleepings of death dead now and buried cold now and crumbling dust now and hope-filled heaven is hope (and loneliness lingers in those left behind)”
Two amazing topics tonight, interspersed with our usual rundowns of New York hip hop music and culture.
One, well two, of our favorite guests will be joining us for the third straight year, as Lah Tere and Kathleen Adams call in to discuss this year's "Momma's Hip Hop Kitchen," a wonderful annual event that takes place at Hostos Community College in the Bronx. The one-day long event features a stunning lineup of women, performers, guest speakers, entrepreneurs and activists, all convening to shed light on important women's issues, as well as general issues, but from a female perspective.
Momma's Hip Hop Kitchen is an extremely family friendly, all-ages event, and is one of the best opportuinities to witness the positive power of the hip hop community, particularly when it comes to women and girls. We are proud to be official media sponsors of this event, and urge all who can, to attend.
We'll also discuss the whether or not "old school" hip hop is getting the proper "respect," around the country and in business. This issue was sparked by a Daily Beast article, proclaiming that Hip Hop's OGs were not getting their respect, from hip hop radio and media in particular.
Show host and journalist Manny Faces took excception to the portrayal, even thuogh the author had some valid points. Read Manny's rebuttal, and join us live to discuss the issue.
