On Monday we officially launched our official Hip Hop channel. To celebrate we organized a 6 hour lineup of nonstop hip hop – and we didn’t disappoint.
The 6-hour extravaganza featured numerous guests and broadcasters. First was “She’s so Fresh”, a show highlighting female DJ’s & MCs, and was hosted by our fabulous emcees Bless Roxwell (@blessroxwell) and DJ K Styles (@iheartdjkstyles).
Our second show, “Spit ya Game” which was hosted by Smif n Wessun (@SMIFNWESSUN), featured Raheem Staley and Chiresse Paradise (@ResseP), and had broadcasts by many others. Smif n Wessun kept it real as they always do, and also talked about their latest album with Pete Rock, Monumental.
The final show, a special “Check The Rhyme” hosted by Cynical Smith (@cynicalsmith) and DJ Wayne Ski (@DJWayneSki) was entertaining as usual with performances by Frank Bolden, Vvs Verbal, Jewel “JEWELS” Anate, Dynasty TheMusic and Frank Rivera. In the end it came down to Frank and Dynasty who battled for the most “net thumbs up.” Dynasty, aka Lady DY, came out on top, winning $100 and beating Frank by only 2 votes!
The YouNow Hip Hop channel has arrived, ladies and gentlemen. This is what it’s all about… the next generation of entertainment. Witness it live on YouNow.
Special thanks to Cynical Smith and DJ Wayne Ski for being excellent organizers and friends of YouNow.
