Always been a big fan of Star going back to his days at Hot 97 & then later on with his online broadcast with VladTV & Thisis50. No longer interested in the politics and limitations of urban radio, Star has created his own monster with the brand new Shot97.com website, which features a live weekly broadcast from Monday to Friday 12noon to 2pm.
In this episode, Star blacks out on the Love & Hip-Hop reunion taping, Deion Sanders getting custody of his boys, President Obama following Star on Twitter, Tahiry being a rider and Martin Luther King taking a bullet for gay rights!!
Radio legend Troi Torain (STAR) always delivers hard-hitting objective truth. As a culture critic he is vicious, as a businessman he is relentless, as a luminary he is un-matched.
Star & Buc Wild have spanned the arenas of radio, television and publishing. In translating their distinctive style-of-no-style to the mainstream, Torain perfected the unique ability to captivate wider, audiences without compromising authenticity.
Considered radio pioneers by many, Star & Buc Wild have set precedents on the urban landscape and were recently inducted into News One's "Top 20 Black Radio Jockeys Of All Time."
Star & Buc Wild made the national stage on MTV (1999) but it was their radio show on New York's Hot 97 (2000 - 2003) that secured their place in Hip-Hop history. Star & Buc Wild's resume includes Around The Way Mag, The Source, MTV Networks, Hot 97, Power 104.1, Power 105.1, Pulse 87, Hip-Hop Weekly magazine, Vladtv, Thisis50, 100.3 The Beat and shot97.com.
