I can honestly say that exactly one week ago, my life changed for the better. If you’re in Dallas, unless you’ve been living under a rock you already know about this….but just in case….THERE ARE TWO STATIONS CURRENTLY PLAYING CLASSIC HIP HOP ON THE RADIO NOW!
I would like to give a public thank you to my parents for taking me to have GlamourShots done when I was little. Also, imagine this kid listening to hip hop….hilarious.
Hot 93.3 (formerly i93) is a top 40 station here in Dallas and last Friday as I was driving home from work, they played an ad saying instead of Christmas music they would be making this a Hip Hop Holiday. I figured they would intermittently play a few classic hip hop songs but you GUYS they have completely switched over. Here’s to hoping it lasts forever!
You know what’s even better? 94.5 is now a classic hip hop station all the time. Like, forever. From their website, “Boom 94.5 DFW is a classic hip-hop station that features artists like Jay Z, Biggie, 2Pac, Dr. Dre, Missy Elliott, Geto Boys, UGK and more! The only station that represents the hip-hop you grew up with 24-7.” I couldn’t have said it better myself.
In case you don’t live in Dallas, I’ve got some great options for you. Of course you can listen live to 93.3 or 94.5 live online OR if you’re not into the radio, I decided to make a playlist of my favorite songs that I’ve heard. I’m going to keep updating this playlist to make sure to follow it on Spotify!
