Remember when the city use to move to the line up of V-103. We woke up with Frank-Ski and Wanda. We had Big Tigger, Ryan Cameron, & Elle Duncan to push us through the day but when it was 6 o'clock, and we heard that Chris Tucker drop we knew it was time for Greg Street to rock on V-103. Street was the sound of the city. At 8 he ran the top 8 @ 8. But when 10 hit, it was time for The Quiet Storm with Joyce Littel 🌻

Soft & warm, the quiet storm. On v-103

Atlanta was once known as the city too busy to hate. Mayor Ivan Allen Jr. coined us as such because he wanted Atlanta to be recognized for their progressive racial advancements in “equality” (Note: we support equity, not equality). Either way, it was a multi-million dollar campaign in the 60’s to really showcase how business-oriented Atlanta truly was. Mayor Allen was the very Mayor who removed Jim Crow signs and apologized for the Atlanta Wall

THE ATLiens LANDED
22 years ago today the ATLiens landed Ova da Wudz from Babylon on the Wheelz of Steel. Who knew that Two Dope Boyz in a Cadillac would go up in this world like Elevators, you and me? Nah. It might be a new Millennium but from the 13th floor does it really look like anybody is Growin’ Old? Organized Noise was straight Wailin’ when they hit Mainstream but ain’t nothin Extraterrestrial about a Decatur Psalm to a real Jazzy Bell. Don’t worry, who really needs an intro when You May Die, time is of the essence. 🔌 #WeDF

Thank God for Rico Wade. 
Before we go, if you are interested in collaborating, supporting, or working with us in ANY way; HIT US UP! It takes a village and we do not EVER want to do this alone. 

Until next time, Peace.
