    Episode 78 with Theo Lane

    Episode 78 of Waves Of The Bay culminated a very long but rewarding day for us. Our very own DJ Spaceship had the honor of being the maestro for the Tampa Bay Black Heritage Festival and he did his thang! We had to discuss the magnitude of the situation, the evolution of our craft and also highlights of the event. We also spoke with Theo Lane for the Mother's Day Weekend edition of Waves Of The Bay. Theo is an amazing vocalist and writer and his music has appeared on our show many times during our run. He linked up with one of our favorites, Khalea Lynee from The Voice, to create an anthem for the Mothers (produced by Ryan Copeland Music). We debuted "Momma We Love You" on the show and got to pick his brain about the significance of the song and the content.

    Episode 77 with the MayDay 2021 Show

    We spent some time memorializing our fallen Hip-Hop Heroes on this episode in addition to showing love to one of our biggest fans and supporters: Herminia Gonzalez. We had one of our most touching fan letters specifically addressed to DJ Spaceship. It's been a rough start to 2021 and we're blessed to be healthy and doing what we love. We did spend a quick minute talking about our expectations for the Verzuz battle featuring XScape and SWV. We also tried to speculate on who would be a good matchup for Janet Jackson.

    Episode 76 with the Shock G. Tribute

    Episode 76 with the Shock G. Tribute

    For the third week in a row we're saying goodbye to a hip-hop great and THIS ONE HITS HOME. Shock G. actually grew up in Tampa, resides in Tampa, and has popped up at several of our events over the years. He was the catalyst behind Digital Underground, The Humpty Dance and the discovery of Tupac Shakur. Every interaction we had with him was genuine and he really showed us, and the Tampa Bay Music Community, authentic love. We lost him this past week and we felt it was right to run through some of our favorite tracks he was a part of for Episode 76.

    This weeks Baywatch featured music from:
    Prossess & Dan Rek Beats - Fly Away
    Blackboi - Warrior
    Prince Golden - Adventure Time
    Ty4Thought - Loyalty Is A Blessing

    Episode 75 with the Black Rob Tribute

    Episode 75 with the Black Rob Tribute

    It's getting a bit ridiculous in the hip-hop world right now as we're seeing our legends and icons pass away. They say it comes in threes and the second great to pass away was Black Rob. We're still reeling from DMX and it seems like life just keeps hitting. There was a time when Black Rob single handedly kept Bad Boy afloat and we had to reflect on his greatness for Episode 75.

    This weeks Baywatch featured music from:
    Yung Dred ft. Hotboi - Everything's Up
    Bub Bizzle - Let's Run It
    Willy Flee - That Bag
    Asaru - All Praises Due

    Episode 74 with Reh Rek aka Rekless

    We spoke with Hip-Hop Artist/Label Owner/Promoter Reh Rek aka Rekless for Episode 74 of Waves Of The Bay. His first event since the Pandemic, Hip-Hop Heavy Weights, is fastly approaching and we talked about the Artists taking the stage with him and also how it feels to get back to the stage.

    We did not do a Baywatch this week and instead did a quick tribute to Hip-Hop Legend DMX. Rest In Peace Earl Simmons.

    Episode 73 with the Earth Wind & Fire/Isley Brothers Verzuz Reaction

    Episode 73 with the Earth Wind & Fire/Isley Brothers Verzuz Reaction

    We began Episode 73 with a Prayer from DMX that came from his recent Verzuz challenge. The news of his overdose was a cloud over Hip-Hop and we had to send some strength his way. We spent a good amount of the show talking about the Verzuz battle between Earth Wind & Fire and the Isley Brothers and how amazing it was. It was a great way to expose new ears to some of our classics!

    This weeks Baywatch featured music from:
    Sally Sweets ft. Koly P - My Medicine
    L Rose - Open Wounds
    Nessa Raico - 66th Degree
    Rahim Samad ft. Laws - Scarface Tropics
