Let me tell you how I feel about NY stations. I am generally unimpressed, although I have to say the morning shows on 97 and Breakfast Club are amongst the best in the industry. Other than that, nothing bad, but nothing special either: they put on local artists (other cities do too), they play the current hits, they play throwbacks, they show for up and coming non-local artists; but none of that in unique. To use an example, 102 Jamz does all of this, and has a great morning show, just doesn't have the cache or get the features the NY gets...

A better question is what under-the-radar cities have the best hip hop scene, all elements included? We all know the giant cities of hip hop...

Yes! I monitor radio stations all the time (I worked in radio for 30 Years and am still interested). 102 Jamz in Greensboro is by far the best hip hop station. This is very impressive considering they are in a medium market yet sound way better than any major market hip hop station. The Nielsen ratings reflect this too. 102 Jamz is #1 with a double digit share while hip hop overall does rotten in the ratings in most other cities these days (it used to do good everywhere 15-20 Years ago). If you like hip hop I urge you to check this station out, they make a genre of music this is dead and stale nationally sound fresh and exciting.

This college radio station from Albany also has some good genre based shows: 90.9FM WCDB Albany, New York
This station just dropped this minutes ago and is an example of what they play: Music: Jered Sanders - Heathen

I believe that Hot 97 and Power 105.1 both play a mix of old and new.

IMO we havent heard a diss track like this since Ether. Thing is you have diss tracks that are mostly violent rants (Hit'em Up Gucci/Jeezy beef) or diss tracks that have a few cute lines (Back to Back) but very few diss tracks hit below the belt with the truth over and over and over. At the 3 min mark on this track she had already beaten a dead horse and she still had another 3 mins left in the song . Plus the BARS she spit are the truth or at least most people believe they are true (ass implants, her brother, ghostwriting, etc). Yes this is a real diss track with straight bars. This track might be in the top 5 diss tracks of all time as far as spitting straight bars. Hit'em up which is the #1 diss track of all time IMO is mostly a rant. This is definitely up there with Takeover, Ether and No Vaseline. This is good for Hip Hop. A lot of kids in this generation dont know what a real diss track sounds like. My friend said her daughter said "Why are these new rappers trying to diss Nicki?" She asked her who she was talking about and she said Remy Ma (These kids dont know nothing ). Hopefully this record will get the youth to go back and listen to real hip hop and see what real battling is.
