Hip Hop Chip Shop and Kosmonaut will be hosting a screening of Stretch and Bobbito: Radio That Changed Lives as the second part of their new documentary season, Hip Hop Doc Spot on Sunday 28th May.
Taking place in the basement bar, the guys at HHCS and Kosmonaut will be giving guests a Main Event from the Hip Hop Chip Shop menu and an ABC beer or house wine from the bar to wash it down with while kicking back and enjoying the film.
During the 1990s, Stretch and Bobbito introduced the world to an unsigned Nas, Biggie, Wu-Tang, and Big Pun as well as an unknown Jay-Z, Eminem, and the Fugees. The total record sales for all the artists that premiered on their radio show exceeds 300 million. The late night programme had a cult following in the worlds of art and fashion as well as with the nation’s prison population. All would loyally tune in for the humour just as much as for the exclusive tunes.
Including rarely seen footage, including a long-lost verse from The Notorious B.I.G., Stretch and Bobbito is the story of two friends who became unlikely legends by bringing a unique audience together, breaking the biggest rap artists and creating a platform that changed music forever.
