Celebrating the 25th year anniversary of their radio show, Stretch and Bobbito gifted a well-made hip-hop documentary that featured some of hip-hop’s favorite stars, pioneers and radio personalities to properly pay homage. Thanks to a strong Kickstarter campaign, it’s bringing back the nostalgia of the 90s– where hip-hop wasn’t about the love of money, but actually for the love of the culture. Tapes and turntables played a huge part of that timeline but it was Stretch and Bobbito’s dedication during 4-hour graveyard radio shifts that helped jumpstart many careers and gave their audience something to look forward to each week. In the 95-minute film, there’s many unreleased freestyles– including a nasty Notorious B.I.G. sixteen and a Big Pun verse that not even Joey Crack remembers hearing. Watching the film is a brilliant way to fall in love with hip-hop again and enjoy the city before it gets NYC “brick” outside. The documentary will be playing at the Brooklyn Historical Society and can be streamed online at anytime via Vimeo.
