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.
