Learn the story of the men who jumpstarted the careers of some of hip hop's most important artists and the original hosts of WKCR's weekly hip hop show. Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dkxv3H_ebcY During the 1990s, Stretch and Bobbito introduced the world to an unsigned Nas, Biggie, Wu-Tang, and Big Pun, as well as an unknown Jay Z, Eminem, and the Fugees. The total record sales for all the artists that premiered on their show exceed 300 million. The late-night program had a cult following in the art/fashion world and prison population as well. All would loyally tune in for the offbeat humor just as much for the exclusive tunes. Stretch and Bobbito brought a unique audience together, and created a platform that changed music forever. Directed by Bobbito Garcia 98 minutes. Saboteur Films, 2015 www.stretchandbobbito.com
