Listen to Hot 97 FM - 3rd Annual Haiti Tribute

Hot 97 Pays tribute to Haiti in support of Earthquake victims

New York City’s Hot 97 radio station did it again. For the third year in a row, the station which usually plays hip-hop and R&B, payed homage to the victims of the Haiti earthquake by playing Haitian music during their “Old School at Noon” show, which specializes in playing mixes of old-school hip hop. DJ Mister Cee collaborated sought the help of DJ Staks (who is of Haitian descent) to put together an awesome mix of Haitian music. Similar to 2010, New York City Haitians called up and expressed their gratitude.

Throughout the hour, Mister Cee could be heard telling the listeners that there was nothing wrong with their radios, and referring to Hot 97 as “Haitian 97”. His support and respect for Haitian culture and music was all too apparent during the entire show.

Ironically, at about 8 minutes into the show, DJ Cipha Sounds walked in, who as many of you might remember, offended the Haitian community when he had mentioned the reason he was HIV negative was because he “didn’t mess with Haitian girls.” When Cipha walked in, Mr. Cee could be heard saying that today he was “going to turn a Puerto Rican into a Haitian” and that Cipha Sounds was definitely “feeling the Haitian sounds” The incident, for which Cipha Sounds was temporarily suspended, was never mentioned.

Listen to the show and let people know what you think. Di Sa’w vle.
