KC Currents, the great little local news and culture show on KCUR 89.3 FM that covers everything from women's football to why that "new car smell" is actually toxic, is turning its mic on local hip-hop to give air time to one of our personal favorites here at the Wayward Blog: Stik Figa.
Stik, who was born in Topeka as John Westbrook Jr., was voted Best Hip-Hop artist in the 2009 Pitch Music Awards. Not just a boundlessly talented rapper, dude is a class act.
I ran into Currents producer Alex Smith last night at the Brick, and he said that Stik is such a good interview, other musicians could learn from him. So, get out your notepads, wannabe- media-savvy MCs, when Stik hits the left side of the FM dial this Sunday from 5 to 6 p.m. If you got church or something, there's a repeat broadcast on Monday at 8 p.m.
