Ebro sits for a chat with Combat Jack and the crew on his turf at Hot 97 to talk about the decline of urban radio and the state of hip-hop in NYC on The Combat Jack Show. Ebro breaks down the inner-workings of the radio world as it exists today and talks about the direct correlation between a lack of jobs in urban radio and the audience’s lack of participation in the Nielsen system. They also talk about the backlash surrounding Trinidad James‘ recent comments on New York hip-hop and the possibility that the collective anger produced by his statements could potentially unify the city’s hip-hop scene. Check the footage below to watch the full interview with Ebro Darden on The Combat Jack Show.
