During the 1990s, the Stretch and Bobbito Radio Show a.k.a.
“89tec9” introduced the world to an unsigned Nas, Biggie, Wu-Tang,
Mobb Deep and Big Pun as well as an unknown Jay-Z, Eminem,
Cypress Hill, Fat Joe, and the Fugees. The total record sales for all
the artists that premiered on their show exceed 300 million. Stretch
and Bobbito created a platform that changed music forever.
In an era before the internet, listeners recorded the weekly Stretch
and Bobbito program on cassette, then dubbed them and shared
copies with their friends around the world.Fat Beats Distribution was
also responsible for the global spread of 89tec9 tapes, providing a
platform for record stores and hip hop shops to sell them.
Pop one in your walkman or boom box and relive a time in hip hop
that can never be duplicated!
