Stretch & Bobbito B-Side




The B-Side was a show Stretch, & Bobbito had on Hot 97 in 1996, that ran quadra-monthly. Episodes include guests ATCQ and Consequence promoting the 'Beats Rhymes and Life' Lp, Jeru the Damaja and DJ Premier promiting the 'Wrath of the Math' Lp, and Redman promoting the 'Muddy Waters' Lp.





Here are all 3 B-Side episodes.

words from Bobbito on the B-Side...

"The B-side show, if I remember correctly, only happened these three times. It was sort of an experiment to get me and Stretch on more prime time, during Angie's weekday evening slot. It went over well with everyone. It was kind of like a showcase of anticipated albums from artists who were known from our corner of the world. I think that'd be like 8pm to 9pm? I don't really remember (the time slot). Our Sunday, 'Boogie and the Barber', show on hot was from 11pm to 1am.

Another thing you may want to search for is me and Stretch doing the subbing for Ed Lover and Dr. Dre's morning show on January 1, 1997. I can't remember why they couldn't do it, but people were absolutely buggin' to hear us that early (started at 5am i think until 8am) on prime time. We were just ourselves, acting stupid, snapping, all that. I can't remember, but I don't think stretch dj'ed, the station just played their regular playlist and we talked a lot. I don't have a recording though . . ."
