Suffice it to say, this is a night that is not to be missed. Get your tickets now, all proceeds will benefit Roc Raida’s family. Meanwhile, read A-Trak’s remembrances of Roc Raida on his blog and in this Q&A with Noz.
Our friends Stretch Armstrong and Bobbito Garcia are continuing to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of their legendary radio show: first there was the reunion broadcast that set the internets on fire, now there’s a one-night-only event at NYC’s Le Poisson Rouge this Thursday (2/10), co-hosted by the inimitable Lord Sear and promising a bevy of “very special surprise guests.” You don’t want to miss this one, buy your advance tickets now!
We’re proud to lend a hand in toasting Stretch and Bob with an exclusive Fool’s Gold tee, designed by Dust La Rock. Thursday’s show is going to be the first place you can purchase this shirt, which comes in bold black and orange on white, and an extra-limited heather grey colorway. Hip-hop must haves! Check them out after the jump. Read More
