I notice a lot of Old School Hip Hop stations have also had to add "Throwback R&B" just to survive. Otherwise, they'd just keep playing the same 5 or 6 rap songs every two hours.

Meh. It was average at best. She had one of the greatest diss track beats of all time with "Ether" and couldn't even do it justice. She was all off beat and her lyrics were pretty average. She wasted a great beat, if you ask me.

These are pretty average lyrics to you


"But you point the fingers at me, I'm the bad girl? And she the one out here misleading the black girls."

"All these fake asses influenced by that girl? Dying from botched surgeries, what a sad world."

"But before the butt-job you was a Spongebob, sucking **** for records captain of the *** squad."

"And I got a few words for the moms of the young Barbs, guess supports a child molester? Nicki Minaj."

"Yeah you paid for your brothers wedding that's hella foul, how you spend money to support a pedophile?"

Or that 360 deal line

A lot of them are really "Old School" and R&B stations. It may be a matter of how far back they go in terms of Old School Hip Hop too. Are they playing Gang Starr, BDP, Leaders of the New School, Lords of the Underground, Whodini, etc...? There are actually plenty of options.

If you're going to have an old school hip hop station, than anything from 1978-1999 is fair game. If you only keep it on one era, such as the 80s or just the 90s, it's bound to fail. So whodini and Run DMC along with Nas and Outkast. TBH, the early 2000s (meaning 2000-2003) is creeping up on the old school designation.

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.
No Vaseline is my all time favorite diss track. Hit Em Up is my #2. But listening to some of Eminem's diss tracks, they were just as brutal. I forgot all about Em's crazy A$s who probably made more diss tracks than anybody.

I haven't even listened to Nicki's diss track yet, but I hope she come better than I expect her to. Cause I haven't heard nothing too impressive from Nicki in quite a while.

I know I'm late to the party, but I gotta give a shout out to Utah's Beat on U92 in Salt Lake City!

By no stretch is it the best station. But it's a much better hip-hop station that we deserve, and not nearly as white bread as you'd expect. Legend goes they back in 2008, U92 discovered and played Bone Thugs and Harmony's "I Tried" before any other station in the United States.

In a town that's nauseatingly homogeneous, it's great to hear a station that has minorities as DJs, a diverse listener base, and phattest beats in the 801.

Note I said primetime because many stations would not play a lot of rap/hip hop during primetime back then.

They played it all ranging from East/West coast hip hop, DC go-go, Midwest house music, they literally covered the spectrum. All day, every day and not just the typical mainstream rap/hip hop. No quiet storm, no gospel, it is/was truly the real deal since the 80s.

Some stations would give short hip hop mix teasers, lots of commercials/talk, generic or feature play hip hop...not 102 Jamz. What is amazing is that the station continued to adapt as the South became hip hop central with ATL, Memphis, New Orleans, Miami, Houston etc...it was still hard hitting and in your face style.

Many stations I've listened to from ATL, DC, NYC, Houston, Dallas, Memphis, etc offered some raw regional hip hop but nothing like 102 Jamz. I am sure that has changed now. I don't listen to as much hip hop (or whatever they call it) these days but 102 Jamz was definitely a trendsetter and not sure why other stations never followed that format.
If I'm not mistaken, 102 Jamz did have a Gospel segment on Sunday mornings in the 90s.

And it didn't play gritty hip-hop. Only chart hits. I remember it wasn't until DJ Prostyle and Nasty had their weekly segment to where you heard Reggae and Tri State Hip-hop. And that wasn't until the late 90s.

More people listen to terrestrial radio than Sirius/XM.
