New XM Hip-Hop Stations Coming


Posted February 6, 2008 - By Mike D'Alonzo

XM is stepping up the hip-hop content, with two new stations designed to appeal to different segments of the culture. The first features N.O.R.E. and his cohorts DJ EFN and Capone, talking smack about the topics of the day. "It’s barbershop talk on the radio," N.O.R.E. told AllHipHop.com. " We are covering all issues from Superhead [Karrine Steffans] to Hillary Clinton and Obama, to the Iraq war, to smoking cigarettes, getting weeded and drunk and lying to your girl. It’s made for n***as but females will enjoy it as well."

The other show will feature Philly native Monie Love and her old-skool take on the hip-hop community, with a show called Ladies First Radio that will feature her reflections on life, all set to a 90's rap soundtrack. We are glad that XM is reaching out to the hip-hop community, and shows like this will allow fans and casual listeners to get a grip on that world in much more far-reaching ways.
