For the past 8 years the Fantastik Four Crew, which features DJs Mr. Choc and J. Rocc, C-Minus and Truly OdD, have provided a critical outlet for underground Hip-Hop in Southern California, the nation's second largest market. According to Fantastik 4our group members, there was no official warning of the cancellation and that listeners will not receive a farewell show. As the radio market in the US becomes more monopolized it's harder & harder for artists who aren't on major record labels to get exposure on the air waves. Thus, you hear the same 16 songs when you turn on the radio. Friday Night Flavas has filled that void for a decade & provided many artists you see on MTV & BET now their first platform to get their music to listeners. While Power 106 has not indicated reasons for the cancellation of the weekly three-hour show, industry insiders speculated that the reason for the move is to make room for a more commercial oriented radio show. After its inception, Friday Night Flavas experienced major success and helped Power 106 to open its door to Hip-Hop and to their current slogan "Where Hip-Hop Lives." If Power 106 is where Hip Hop lives - Then they should embrace the realest Hip Hop they have - Friday Night Flavas. Click here to save Friday Night Flavas: www.petitiononline.com/Po...ition.html
