Why do So Many Rappers Have the Same Name?

Know Your History is a documentary series that gets in-depth about hip-hip history and culture. Hosted by Chase March, this program has been a regular segment on DOPEfm and Word is Bond Rap Radio for over ten years.

In this edition of the show, we look closely at rappers that have the same name as other musicians. Names can be currency when it comes to popular music. So why do so many rappers have similar sounding names? Let’s dive into that topic with episode 85 – We Have the Same Name.

This is just one small part of the two hour show that aired last night on 94.9 fm Radio Western. We started off the show with some brand new music, moved into the documentary, spun some more new joints, and closed off with some classics.
