“What’s Good” with Stretch & Bobbito

“what’s good” with stretch & bobbito

Stretch & Bob have a new series on NPR entitled “What’s Good,” where they discuss music, politics, movies, etc. Their second episode was just released earlier today featuring Oscar winning actor Mahershala Ali, who unbeknownst to me was known as Prince Ali and signed to Heiro back in the day. Their first episode aired a few weeks back, and featured comedians Dave Chappelle and Donnell Rawlings. Can’t wait to see Chappelle on two dates in August at Radio City. link
