From 1990 to 1998, The Stretch Armstrong and Bobbito radio show ruled the airwaves in the greater New York City area, and was responsible for helping break future cultural icons like Biggie, Jay Z, Busta Rhymes, Eminem and Mobb Deep. Consequently, the two grandiose personalities behind the show — Stretch Armstrong and Bobbito Garcia — became legends in their own right and carved out their places in Hip Hop history.
NPR has recognized their immeasurable contributions to the culture and presented them with an opportunity to host their own podcast, which is presumably underway and expected to debut this summer. The network has released the first trailer for the show, which features a quick snippet of an El-P interview and simultaneously promises to cover Hip Hop, art, politics, sports, and “everything in between,” according to Stretch. The announcement comes after the release of the 2015 documentary, Stretch & Bobbito: Radio That Changed Lives, which can be found here.
Watch the trailer above.
