There was standing room only Monday night at the Regent Theater, the night hip-hop curators and ambassadors Bobbito and DJ Stretch Armstrong premiered “Radio that Changed Lives,” a documentary about the duo and their radio show that did indeed do just that. Beatjunkies.com and The5thElementmag.com provided event coverage. The film features interviews from Big L, Nas, Jay-Z, Wu-Tang Clan, Biggie, Eminem, The Fugees, Souls of Mischief, Busta Rhymes and many more, before they were celebrities, as they recall moments at the WKCR studio at Columbia University. Stretch and Bobbito pioneered a platform that served as a launching pad for artists, and inspired future radio show gatekeepers, like Sway and King Tech. Hit the jump for all the special coverage we got and a link to stream the film.

“It’s great to have a pool that keeps on top of new joints while giving the same attention to classics and deeper cuts from many eras and styles. The Beat Junkies Pool reminds me of the things I have in my own record boxes, as well as what I forgot about or didn’t even know. It’s The Beat Junkie sound, you already know!”
“There is no other record pool in the game providing its members quality digs, rare gems, and specially curated content like beatjunkies.com. It’s like uncovering your favorite DJ’s hidden crates, I feel like I score every time!”
