Stretch & Bobbito announce first-ever album, new podcast, and NYC show
Legendary hip hop (and beyond) radio DJs Stretch & Bobbito are releasing their first-ever album, No Requests, on January 17 via Uprising Music/Brooklyn Road/ADA Worldwide (pre-order). The album was recorded with a backing band dubbed The M19s Band, and it features various guests. Along with the announcement, they put out two singles, "I Know You, I Live You" which features Maimouna Youssef and reimagines the 1981 Chaka Khan song of the same name, and a cover of '70s UK rock band Babe Ruth's "The Mexican" which features Mireya Ramos. You can listen to both below.
Stretch & Bobbito are also launching a new podcast, The Actual Stretch and Bobbito Show, and you can watch the trailer for that below.
Last but not least, Stretch & Bobbito and The M19s Band will play a No Requests album release show at NYC's Gramercy Theatre on January 23. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (11/22) at 10 AM with Live Nation and Music Geeks presales starting Wednesday (11/20) at 10 AM.
