Hopefully, you were one of many in attendance on August 16 for the SummerStage Stretch Armstrong and Bobbito 25th Anniversary concert at Central Park. (The Q&A that preceded the show broke SummerStage’s record for most RSVPs ever and forced them to close the panel a full five days early!)
But if (like me) you missed out on all of the amazing guest appearances from artists like (not so) Fat Joe, Lord Finesse, Grand Puba and Sadat X, Pete Rock and more, maybe you’d be interested in contributing to a cause that will ensure Stretch and Bobbito’s legacy is shared with the world (and not just those of us who grew up listening to their show on college radio 89.9 in NYC).
The Stretch and Bobbito: Radio That Changed Lives Kickstarter page outlines the documentary as “a film about quirky friends who became unlikely hip hop legends by engaging their listeners and breaking the biggest rap artists ever.” Truer words have never been spoken.
With 18 days left in the campaign, they are nearly halfway to their goal. Here are just a few of the enticing rewards the guys are offering for help with hitting that $50,000:
- For a pledge of $5 or more, have your name listed under “SPECIAL THANKS” on www.stretchandbobbito.com
- For a pledge of $25 or more, receive an HD digital download of the film two weeks before its release (and have your name listed under “SPECIAL THANKS” on www.stretchandbobbito.com)
- For a pledge of $75 or more, limited edition (only 100 made) “Tape” graphic t-shirt of Big L & Jay Z archive cassette featured in the film + an HD digital download of the film two weeks before its release (and have your name listed under “SPECIAL THANKS” on www.stretchandbobbito.com)
