Word is Bond Rap Radio’s 6th Anniversary Special

Word is Bond Rap Radio took to the airwaves in March of 2012.

This week we celebrated our 6th Anniversary by spinning music from 6 years ago or songs that were track 6 on albums.

We also pay tribute to Craig Mack, who passed away last week by playing a new song that he is featured on. We follow that up with the classic track that launched Bad Boy Records back in the day. He will certainly be missed.

Stewie was also in the studio to talk about his fundraising concert going down this Friday in London. Ontario, Canada.

I had a blast live on the air this week celebrating this milestone. I hope you enjoy the podcast!

Word is Bond Rap Radio – Christmas Rappin’

It’s time to celebrate Christmas with two hours of great hip-hop music mixed live on the radio.

We start off with the classic “Christmas Rappin'” by Kurtis Blow and ask the question, “Why isn’t this song in popular culture?” Why isn’t it heard right alongside Mariah Carey or Wham? Why are there people who don’t know this song? Or “Christmas in Hollis” by Run-DMC?

Both of these songs are Christmas classics with a lot of appeal. I wonder why they haven’t crossed over.

What say you? Why don’t we hear Christmas rap songs on regular radio, in the shopping malls, and everywhere we go this time of year. We really should!
