On the heels of the Mister Cee arrest, HHW examines the history of controversies that have plagued the troubled station.
It’s like a faucet that leaks. Sometimes there’s a gush, other days it’s just drip, drip, drip. Whatever metaphor you choose there’s little doubt that New York’s Hot 97 is a radio station in crisis. Over the last decade, the Emmis Communication owned channel has been involved in a series of controversies ranging from inappropriate and offensive comments from on-air personalities to gun-play and shoot-outs in front of its Hudson Street address.
In our most recent issue, HHW provides extensive coverage and chronicles a decade of Hot 97′s racial and cultural sensitivity, the history of beef at the embattled station, the lawsuits, the Funk mast Flex fall-out and and the most recent details of the Mister Cee situation. In addition, we have an exclusive interview with Charlamagne tha God who talked exclusively about his war of words with Funk Master Flex and his comments on Mister Cee’s arrest.
