“I grew up on Hip-Hop, in the projects, in the South Bronx, in the 70’s at the Jams in the park and I still nod my head and turn the radio up when I hear a song that’s hot, including Jay-Z, Nas, 50 Cent and The Game. But I’m 34 years old and I know the difference between truth and fiction. I know real gangsters from personal experience. I know the street game from personal experience. Hip-Hop music is filled with grown men and women teaching young, impressionable people how to be gangsters and thugs. All the real gangsters I knew never wanted good kids to go bad, because they knew the long-term consequences of that life, and now most of them are either on drugs, dead, in jail or on the long road to recovery…” READ

LONG LIVE THE KANE!
We are back in effect no doubt! (a little old school lingo for ya) Yes THE ZRO HOUR has arisen from its slumber and so much has happened in our absence. From the devastating effects of Hurricane Katrina to the VH1 Hip Hop Honors and in between. This last quarter of the fiscal music year looks to be shaping up very strong as we await a slew of new releases from veterans and new jacks alike. The Roots are now signed to Def Jam Left, Kanye West stands up to George Bush, and Jay-Z is readying another concert. Speaking of Jay, be on the look out for him to grace the cover of FORTUNE magazine- DAMMNNN!
This show is actually a gem. Many of you slept on DJ AMBUSH’s KILLA RIDDIMZ CD so I wanted to present that as sort of a pre-show. We will be back in 2 weeks with an official jump off like we usually do so stay tuned. The VH1 Hip Hop Honors was incredibly dope and brought back the full wave of memories of an era that will reign supreme. LL COOL J, GRANDMASTER FLASH & THE FURIOUS 5, SALT & PEPA and KANE himself destroyed it! Kane is my personal favorite and strongest influence when it comes to MCs (equally with KRS ONE). In our exclusives section we have a classic battle between Kane and a Philly MC named Jazz Fresh. It’s a live performance with BIZ MARKIE and COOL V on the wheels. Shout out to MISTER K from South London on that one! Check the new JOE BUDDENS track that proves his storytelling prowess. Courtesy of FULLY LOADED RECORDS we have a joint from GUTTA feat. TRAGIC. Straight from Houston K-OTIX weighs in on the whole Bush administration debacle. I hear some parts of the country are playing it while others have ignored it-they sum it up for me…
Lastly, be on the lookout for this project above. Two of the greatest in hip hop join forces for a crazy CD project. BIGGIE was also feted at the VH1 Honors and in his memory we have a clip of B.I.G. freestyling in his hometown (and mine) BED STUY, BROOKLYN from the movie BIGGIIE AND TUPAC.
See you later this month…
SIX ZRO Entertainment presents THE ZRO HOUR. THE ZRO HOUR began as a twice monthly, underground/pirate radio show broadcast on Galaxy Plus 90.5 FM in Brooklyn, NY. THE ZRO HOUR is hosted by EDAYE, ALEXIE F., and DJ AMBUSH-SIX ZRO Entertainment’s founders. THE ZRO HOUR’s format includes Hip Hop, R&B, Reggae, Underground and classics. The show draws influences from New York Hip Hop radio past and present. These underground radio shows were hosted by Mr. Magic, the Supreme Team, Afrika Islam, Red Alert, Hank Love & DNA, P-Fine, Marley Marl, Awesome 2 and Stretch Armstrong & Bobbito. Each Show is formatted slightly different with an emphasis on the rarely appreciated influences within R&B and Hip Hop music. From exclusive, new releases to album cuts and unsigned talent, there is a conscious attempt to reeducate the listener.
EDAYE, President of SIX ZRO Entertainment, is the creator and production director of THE ZRO HOUR. Born and raised in Brooklyn, NY, EDAYE’s passion for Hip Hop began with the first known recorded songs, “King Tim III” by the Fatback Band and “Rapper’s Delight” by the Sugarhill Gang. Through the years of discovery, EDAYE participated in most forms of Hip Hop expression such as graffiti, dance, beatboxing, rapping, and producing music. In 1996, he performed at several open mics at the Nuyorican Poets Café during Bobbito and Rocky’s “All That” Wednesdays. His journey has led to his focus on audio engineering and music production. In 2002, shortly after graduating SAE Institute of Technology, EDAYE became a part of the opening team at Platinum Sound Recording Studio. EDAYE worked as an assistant engineer on Wyclef Jean’s “Preacher’s Son”, DJ Kay Slay’s “Streetsweeper Vol.1”, Tom Jones’ “Mr. Jones” and Jonathan Demme’s “The Agronomist”. In 2003, he left Platinum Sound to focus on creating SIX ZRO Entertainment.
DJ AMBUSH , assistant program director, producer, and founding member of SIX ZRO Entertainment, is the force behind the turntables on THE ZRO HOUR. Ambush has a knowledge of Hip Hop and R&B music that spans beyond his past 10 years as a DJ. Ambush’s love for Hip Hop began at age five when his mother bought him his first record player. Soon after, he attempted to scratch his first record, “Thriller” by Michael Jackson and “Roxanne, Roxanne” by U.T.F.O. His interest in Djing consumed him while growing up in Kingsboro projects.
Through the 80’s, Ambush would always be the youngest kid sitting nearby as the DJ set up the equipment for the park jams. Ambush watched in amazement as local DJs Doo-Doo, Blitz, JuneJune, and Leroy held command over the crowd. During this time, Ambush’s love for the radio led him to sleep with one while trying to record DJ Red Alert’s late night mix shows. At the age of 12, he got his first set of semi-pro turntables and by 17, upgraded to Technics 1200s. DJ Ambush has performed at Brooklyn clubs such as Juliana’s, The Lab, 243’s, Club Azure and NYC’s Madison Square Garden among others.
