48 Hours of Hip-Hop at Goom Radio

Recently, Goom Radio— a 100% digital radio station that is taking storm in France and coming soon to New York— ran a continuous 48 hour episode of it’s hip-hop radio show “Explicit Content,” featuring the biggest artists in French hip-hop, rap and R’n’B. While I wasn’t able to compete with the various radio hosts who stayed up for nearly two full days (breaking for a few hours here and there to sleep and shower), in just the 11 hours that I spent at the station, I got to hang out with some of the top names in the industry, including: Oxmo Puccino, Disiz, Leslie, Seth Gueko, Orelsan, LIM, Youssoupha, Dragon Davy, Mr. Toma, Black Barbie and Kamnouze among others. On top of that, many of the Goom radio hosts are also important figures on the French hip-hop scene, including rappers Freeman (formerly of IAM), Sonikem and Driver, and female hip-hop journalist Valou.

Although definitely a little hectic, the whole experience was a lot of fun. Great interviews, live music, freestyles, and impromptu dance parties contributed to 48H Chrono’s success, and graffiti artists were even on hand painting a mural to commemorate the event. Additionally, local up-and-coming artists (including Blackara) were invited to perform and be interviewed— reinforcing the inclusive and supportive nature of the 48H Chrono experience.

While Samy and I were busy filming the event for my final project, we managed to take a few snapshots that are featured in the slide show above. You can listen to the official podcast of 48H Chrono at www.goomradio.com (on the bottom left side of the screen). Enjoy!
