During the 1990s, Stretch and Bobbito introduced the world to an unsigned Nas, Biggie, Wu-Tang, Big Pun, as well as an unknown Jay-Z, Eminem, the Fugees and many more. The total record sales for all the artists that premiered on their acclaimed radio 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 humor, just as much for the exclusive tunes. Recordings of the show would circulate not only Stateside, but all around the world, bringing together a unique audience and creating a platform that changed music forever.
25 years after Stretch and Bobbito's first WKCR broadcast, the legendary duo now present a feature length documentary titled STRETCH AND BOBBITO: RADIO THAT CHANGED LIVES. The film is a story of how two quirky friends who were real nerds — became unlikely Hip-Hop legends by engaging their listeners and breaking the biggest rap artists ever. The film is produced by Omar Acosta and co-produced by Stretch and Bob, with Bobbito on directing duties and Stretch supervising the music.
In collaboration with Patta, Bassline, BBQ and Appelsap, Beat Bop presents an exclusive Amsterdam screening of STRETCH & BOBBITO: RADIO THAT CHANGED LIVES at Cafe de Duivel on Saturday October 24th. The screening will be accompanied by a Q&A with Stretch and Bobbito themselves, and afterparty with 90’s Hip-Hop provided by Edzon, SP, Abstract, Mairo Nawaz and hosted by Lentini. Doors open at 20:00 and the film starts at 21:00. Entrance is free. Be on time, full = full.
