THE SATURDAY NIGHT SHUTDOWN has been the Premier Hip-Hop Show in Tampa Bay for decades.  Dating back to 1986 the show has featured a wide range of talented hosts who have continued to carry the torch that the late Kenny K ignited. The baton was passed to us and we had the honor of taking it to the next level as the new Hosts of the Shutdown on 1st Saturdays for most of 2019.

Our 3rd show with the Saturday Night Shutdown was as important as they come.  We were part of the WMNF Fundraiser alongside the rest of the Shutdown crew.  DJ Silent Rage, DJ Wally Clark and DJ Spaceship all came through to create the vibe and keep the music blazing.  OP Supa, Rahim Samad, Concept and myself held down the hosting duties and shared a few laughs along the way.  THANK YOU to everyone who donated.  You can call in to 813.238-8001 to show support or go directly to www.wmnf.org/events/saturday-night-shutdown/ and hit the tip jar.

SUNDAY OCTOBER 6, 2019

October's Shutdown was a full circle type of event.  We had a great interview with St. Pete Hip-Hop Artist DABRON KAIN and reflected on the path it took to get here.  He was actually one of the founders of Powerline AFX and a vital reason why DJ Spaceship and myself are doing what we do.  We played music from his latest release "The Dark Album."

THE SATURDAY NIGHT SHUTDOWN

SUNDAY NOVEMBER 2, 2019

We spoke with the Twerk God CRISTOL for this edition of the Shutdown.  I met him when i first moved to Tampa 13 years ago.  To see him where he's at right now is both humbling and encouraging.  He debuted a new track that he just laid down at the studio which is about to be a major problem in the very near future.  We talked about where music has taken him to and what's on the horizon.
