Stretch & Bobbito Hot 97 (1st Show)

Dirty Waters is all about classic radio, and features many Stretch & Bobbito tapes, so I figured I'd go the extra mile to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Stretch Armstrong Show. For those who don't know, after 5 years of hosting a show on WKCR, Stretch and Bobbito were offered a show on Hot 97. The show began in February, 1996 and was called 'Boogie and the Barber.' What I have here (if I'm correct), is the first three 'Boogie and the Barber' shows, with guests including Large Professor, Jay-Z and Jaz. Stay tuned the following two Sunday nights for the next two.

This is the very first 'Boogie and the Barber' show. It sounds like Stretch and Bobbito were excited/nervous to be on Hot 97 and adjusting to the new studio, but they still came with a show full of treats. Unfortunately the sound isn't all that great in the beginning but it gets better...

  1. Hey - I recongize that handwriting! I miss the days of defacing private property. We need to link up with someone who will let us F around on a legal wall, I can't risk getting caught to "get a rep". I doubt all my institutional clients that trust me with hundreds of millions of $ would approve. But I must say, I still F around with a pad and paper and most of all I miss the rush of bombing. You still have all your caps?? RIP NACE! I speak with Danny Z. often, he's doing well, lives in Jersey City now. He cracks me up sometimes.
    I'll be up around Thanksgiving to celebrate stealing all the American Indians land!!

  2. Man I haven't touched a spray paint can since the early 90's but for some reason I think i do have some caps lying around lol Definitely peace to Dan Z, I caught up with him on my facebook. Turkey day we'll definitely chill give a call..
