Stretch and Bobbito: Radio That Changed Lives explores the social impact of what the Source Magazine in 1998 voted, "The Best Hip Hop Radio Show Of All-Time." The documentary film is the story of quirky friends who became unlikely legends by engaging their listeners and breaking the biggest rap artists ever.Written by
Stretch and Bobbito was HANDS DOWN the best Hip Hop radio show of all time & this AMAZING DOC shows why
This show was not only hilarious, real, raw, and groundbreaking but when you see the list of Emcees they broke to the masses or at least put on radio in NY for the first time ever it shows you they knew what was dope and only cared about what was dope/fresh, not what was marketable b-c from 1990-98 that stuff didn't matter NEARLY as much and even if it did Stretch and Bob didn't care.
Nas, Biggie, Wu-Tang, Big L, Jay-Z, Big Pun, Eminem, Pharoahe Monch, Black Thought, Mos Def, Talib Kweli, Common, Lord Finesse, Redman, Souls of Mischief, and MANY more. Anyone who knows great hiphop knows that the Emcees i just listed are all ELITE GOAT Emcees and they also brought on legends from 80s like Kool G Rap, KRS-One, Qtip (Tribe), etc.
Amazing doc and amazing radio show. Even if you don't like HipHop this movie is enthralling/engrossing, never boring with great cinematography!
