Saturday September 8th on Beta radio it went down in a major way with our in studio guest, from the great state of Texas, our phone in interview with an up & coming artist of Major label Def Jam, award show announcements, and even a surprise call about a multi-platinum artist.
1st we kicked things off with our new homie Big Sid out of Texas. He reviewed tracks from local artist such as Ali ( R & B singer), Motre ( R & B group), rap artist Ace Boog, & Clay L, & also Cleveland, Ohio artist Mookie Montonio. Overall he gave 2 tracks great reviews & 1 bad reviews. He also told us about some of his good & bad times as an artist. He stated that one of the worse parts of his career was ever signing a deal, while the best part of his career was working with Killer Mike, being a big fan of his & and the dungeon family growing up.

Next hour we prepared for our call with Def Jam’s new artist & Cleveland, Ohio’s own Ray Jr. as we aired his new single Lic Lac on our station for the 1st time. We discussed his situation with Def Jam, why he got pulled off stage at one the the summers biggest concerts in Cleveland and more. We brought up the beef between Chief Keef & Lupe Fiasco & if there was any major beefs in Cleveland, Ohio. He told us that he wasn’t aware of there beef & stated that there wasn’t many rap beefs in Cleveland because they don’t have enough money to beef out there. Before we debuted his new single Lic Lac he let us know it was a party joint which basically means straight liquor no chaser & that’s how they do it in Cleveland, he tell’s us.
