Salute the DJ feat. Marley Marl
Salute the DJ feat. Marley Marl
Marley Marl is brought Hip-Hop to the NYC radio waves in the early 80’s with Mr. Magic on WBLS. As one of Hip-Hop radio’s first DJs, evolved into a super producer known to work with Hip-Hop greats such as LL Cool J, Eric B and the Juice crew which kept a long rivalry with KRS-One and Boogie Down Productions in the Bridge Wars. Marley Marl returned back to where it all started for him, WBLS, and can be heard Mon-Fri in the noon mix.
