Word Up! 3.0 is our 3rd Annual Celebration of Hip-Hop Culture on Radio Western.
It starts tonight at 9:00 p.m. as we have a live DJ mixset party going on via Zoom. Follow Radio Western on Instagram to get your invite code. I will be spinning live from the Word is Bond Studios. It’s going to be a lot of fun.
And then at midnight, we begin 24 hours of radio that celebrates the official birthday of hip-hop culture.
DJ Hullewud, host of Break North Radio, spearheads this epic day in conjunction with Radio Western to pay homage to the Hip-Hop music and culture. Several Radio Western hosts and shows are involved as well as a few special guests.
August 11th marks the 47th anniversary of the start of hip-hop. Several people dispute the date and whether or not hip-hop should have a birthday, but I say, let’s celebrate this rich culture we call hip-hop.
At 8:00 a.m., I will be broadcasting two brand new episodes of Know Your History, a documentary series that gets in-depth about hip-hip history and culture. This program has been a regular segment on DOPEfm and Word is Bond Rap Radio for ten years. In the first half hour, we look closely at rappers that have the same name as other musicians. After that, we try to track down who the real Biggie Smalls was. It’s quite the story. You won’t want to miss it.
There are interviews and mixsets all day long. This is going to be a great day of radio.
Join us on Saturday, August 8th as Radio Western celebrates Hip-Hop culture with 24-hours of programming, exclusive interviews, and DJ mixes!
