“DC’s preminent hip-hop hustler/educator Bomani Armah (of “Read A Book” fame) has been working hard to counteract the complaints of every grown-up hip-hop head who doesn’t think there are any shows worth patronizing.”

Radio Friendly is nuanced, introspective, thought provoking and just plain good music. It’s the music we love and the way we allow it to love us– like fully functioning, highly intoxicating, brilliantly performed and produced and lyrics that have you searching for the rewind function. This is Grown hip hop by a Grown Ass Man for grown ass people. You will not be disappointed.
