If you live in NYC and haven’t heard of Hot 97, you must have been living under a rock. If you don’t live in NYC, keep reading (and listening) for, at the very least, a good laugh. Hot 97 is probably the hottest Urban station there is, and I grew up tuning in and bopping my bamboo earring-ed head to this station on my way to High School every morning (those were the years when I wore baggy pants and dark lip liner).
Imagine my surprise when upon stopping by the 101.9 RXP Matt Pinfield show last week to share some fun eco-Valentine’s Day tips, the Hot 97 boys from the Cipha Sounds & Rosenberg Show heard an “eco chick” was in the house (Hot 97 and 101.9 share a floor) and asked me to come and talk to them as well. I had all sorts of preconceived notions about how hip hop tough guys would react to my eco, green, vegan ideas – but they were all smashed in the shnozz by the most open minded and adorably funny gentlemen I’ve met in years. Considering I wasn’t technically prepared and the conversation ended up going in a decidedly random and sexual direction, I think the overall result was enlightening for the listeners. I figured you kids would get a kick out of it. I had fun sparring with these adorable guys, and hope they ask me back again! What do you think?
