Nas and Mary J. Blige Talk About Their First Time...On the Radio

Mary J. Blige said, “The first time I ever heard ‘You Remind Me,’ I was on the West Side Highway with one of my girlfriends in their jeep. It came on the radio, and I just was like, ‘Whoa!’ DJ Red Alert played it [on 98.7 KISS-FM]. Red Alert broke it, and after that, the song was just everywhere. And I was still living in the projects! It was crazy; it was an amazing moment. I just thanked God right away, ’cause I knew something had happened.”

Nas recalls (but doesn't mention the station), “I was walking around my neighborhood [in Queensbridge], and there was a bunch of older guys on the corner. I thought I heard ‘Live at the Barbecue’ — a Main Source record with me at the top — coming on, and I was trying to get these guys’ attention to listen, but they were lit . . . so I couldn’t even [let them know] that it was me. As long as they didn’t change the station, I didn’t care anyway. I just stood there with them and listened to it, with a smile on my face.”

Chances are Nas' bars on 'Live at the Barbecue' were heard on Red Alert's show or Mr. Magic's Rap Attack on WBLS. Two legendary DJ's that held down Hip Hop on the radio in New York City.

More news...On Sunday 107.5 WBLS weekend host LaDawn Black announced she was moving on to a new opportunity and leaving the station. Black made a surprise return to radio this week at her old stomping grounds as a guest host on The AM Clique Morning Show this week on 92Q (WERQ-FM Baltimore). LaDawn hosted the very popular night show 'The Love Zone' until 2013 when she moved over to sister Adult R&B station Magic 95.9 as midday host.

iHeart's Power 99 (WUSL-FM Philadelphia) midday host Cappuchino exits the station. She's been with the station since 2012. 'Way Up with Angela Yee' is now heard on Power 99 as one of the 30 affiliates that carry the syndicated program across the country.

Questlove went to Instagram to celebrate the word “jawn” being recognized as an official word in the Merriam-Webster Dictionary. The dialectic term is native to his hometown. In Philadelphia and Eastern PA, “jawn” evolved as a variant of “joint,” originally denoting a place. “Jawn” has been used to describe almost anything that one need not or cannot give a specific name to. Suddenly jawn has become not cool to use.
