This Sunday 12/6, we present the film, Stretch and Bobbito: Radio That Changed Lives, a must for all Hip-Hop heads and curious music-lovers. Want the 411 on how Jay, Nas, Eminem, Biggie and others got their stellar careers sparked? Here it is. Immediately following the film will be a Q & A with none other than the legends, Bobbito and Stretch Armstrong, moderated by DJ RBI [WPFW Decipher, WBL]. Peep the trailer [here] and we'll see you Sunday at The Kennedy Center.
During the 1990s, DJs Stretch and Bobbito introduced the world to an unsigned Nas, Biggie, Wu-Tang, and Big Pun, as well as an unknown Jay Z, Eminem, and the Fugees. The total record sales for all the artists that premiered on their show exceed 300 million. The late-night program had a cult following in the art/fashion world and prison population as well. All would loyally tune in for the offbeat humor just as much for the exclusive tunes. Stretch and Bobbito brought a unique audience together, and created a platform that changed music forever.
This program contains strong language. Free general admission tickets will be distributed in the States Gallery starting at approximately 5:30 p.m., up to 2 tickets per person. A capacity audience is anticipated. Patrons are requested to enter the Kennedy Center through the Hall of States and proceed to the Terrace Theater via the Hall of States elevators.
