For the third week in a row we're saying goodbye to a hip-hop great and THIS ONE HITS HOME. Shock G. actually grew up in Tampa, resides in Tampa, and has popped up at several of our events over the years. He was the catalyst behind Digital Underground, The Humpty Dance and the discovery of Tupac Shakur. Every interaction we had with him was genuine and he really showed us, and the Tampa Bay Music Community, authentic love. ...

It's getting a bit ridiculous in the hip-hop world right now as we're seeing our legends and icons pass away. They say it comes in threes and the second great to pass away was Black Rob. We're still reeling from DMX and it seems like life just keeps hitting. There was a time when Black Rob single handedly kept Bad Boy afloat and we had to reflect on his greatness for Episode 75.

We spoke with Hip-Hop Artist/Label Owner/Promoter Reh Rek aka Rekless for Episode 74 of Waves Of The Bay. His first event since the Pandemic, Hip-Hop Heavy Weights, is fastly approaching and we talked about the Artists taking the stage with him and also how it feels to get back to the stage.

We did not do a Baywatch this week and instead did a quick tribute to Hip-Hop Legend DMX. Rest In Peace Earl Simmons.

We began Episode 73 with a Prayer from DMX that came from his recent Verzuz challenge. The news of his overdose was a cloud over Hip-Hop and we had to send some strength his way. We spent a good amount of the show talking about the Verzuz battle between Earth Wind & Fire and the Isley Brothers and how amazing it was. It was a great way to expose new ears to some of our classics!

Episode 72 was an extension of our Donation Drive from the week before. Jasen from ImPowered Minds LLC called in to show support for the show and our very own DJ Spaceship had to put his words to the test. Ship said that he would do a pushup for every dollar donated to the show and we had 200 reasons for him to backtrack..but he did his thing! And we have the footage to prove it! We read some fan mail over the air and we also g...

We took it back to the beginning of our WMNF days and worked out of the legendary Kenny K studios for Episode 70 of Waves Of The Bay. It was a nostalgic moment for us because we used to man this studio Saturdays Nights with the Shutdown Crew for about 6 months before we got the opportunity for our own time slot. DJ Spaceship killed the mix and we had to revisit our opinions on Coming 2 America. Tone also wanted to take it back h...

We spent some time during Episode 69 talking about the One on None D'Angelo Verzuz and how it reminded people of how dope he was in his heyday. We also reviewed the new Coming 2 America movie (we tried to stay away from the spoilers) and gave our opinions of the latest release from Eddie Murphy. Spaceship also dropped an "Untitled" announcement of his own!

We spent the majority of Episode 68 highlighting Black History Month and some of the songs that depict the beautiful struggle. From Common & John Legend, to Tobe Nwigwe, with a sprinkle of Stevie Wonder and Bob Marley we had fun putting our touch on the month of February. We also utilized the time to play music from some of our homegrown talent such as Jinx, Aja Lorraine, Prince Golden, Atwaters, J'Nelle, Dynasty, Shelby...

Episode 67 of Waves Of The Bay was a testament to what we do and why we do it. The first part of the show focused on the artists who recently submitted music for airplay. DJ Spaceship made it a point to include everyone's songs in his mix to show how much we support you..if you support us! We also got a chance to discuss the new happenings in Spaceship's World as he made not one, not two, but three announcements on what&...

We spent a few minutes wrapping up the Super Bowl and discussing what happened for Episode 66 of Waves Of The Bay. Being in Tampa for the W was crazy but as a Chiefs fan it was rough for Tone! He laid out how his team took the L and who we expect to be in the Big Game next year. DJ Spaceship also brought something he heard to the Waves Of The Bay table. He had heard a compelling argument that Cee-Lo was ultimately the GOAT of At...

Episode 65 was the leadup to the Super Bowl, which just so happened to be in our beloved Tampa Florida. With the hometown Bucs playing Tone's KC Chiefs we had to do it up big. Tone ran through a set of some KC music to get the Bay acquainted with his town. We also showed love to the Buccaneers Fight Songs that were created by Artists from the Bay and dedicated the BayWatch to them.

Our 64th episode of Waves Of The Bay was a lot of fun and very informative. We caught up to Ken Apperson of The Sunday Sesh and learned more about his life. From his musical beginnings in Missouri, to moving down south in pursuit of opportunities, and ultimately how he is able to provide a platform for his peers. He's adapted every step of the way and we had to explore that in more detail.

Our 62nd Episode was mostly filled with music as DJ Spaceship blasted off for us with an out of this world mix.

We spent a little bit of time talking about the upcoming Verzuz challenge between UGK and 8Ball & MJG for Episode 61 of Waves Of The Bay. We chimed in about who we thought we would and what to look for before we got to the elephant in the room. During the week there was an Insurrection at the Capitol of the US and we had to talk about it and express our feelings on the situation itself.

We closed out the year with Episode 59 of Waves Of The Bay. We wanted to really impact the community with our last interview of 2020 and we got a chance to speak with Jasen Glanton of Impowered Minds LLC. He's created a haven for our youth to get guidance, education and a safe place to express their emotions. We dove into the reason why he's passionate about his movement and what to expect moving into the new year.

Episode 57 of Waves Of The Bay featured an interview with St. Pete Hip-Hop Artist Shadcore. We spoke with him a few months ago when he dropped "Knee Off My Kneck" amidst the BLM movement. We got to check back in with him and debut some new music from his "FRISSON" album. We also spent some time picking his brain about life, music and manhood.

We talked to Jroc Jones back in August about his yearly event that is usually thrown for his Birthday. Well of course with the Rona running rampant our plans changed and moved all the way to December. Carrying on Tradition is important for Jroc so being able to proceed with the show weighed heavily on him. We're thankful to provide a platform for our Homegrown Talent and Episode 56 of Waves Of The Bay talked about the upcoming ...
