The latest Hot 97 member to depart is DJ Cipha Sounds as of Tuesday. In the Summer of 2014, Angie Martinez, left the company for fellow competing station, Power 105.1. Now after 17 years with the station, Cipha is parting ways with Hot 97 and left this statement:
“After 17 years, I’m leaving Hot 97. I¹m changing my relationship status from ‘it¹s complicated’ to ‘single’. It¹s been an amazing ride – from intern to weekends to morning show host to fill Angie’s seat in afternoons. Many years of incredible, life-changing experiences and enough amazing memories to last five lifetimes. The next move is already underway and I promise it’s going to be huge.”
Chris Brown shows off major growth as he has a mature interview with Hot 97 Ebro In The Morning Show, while discussing sensitive subjects like his future with Karrueche, making peace with Rihanna and serving jailtime. It is very refreshing and pleasing to say that least, that there is light at the end of the dark tunnel for Chris Brown. He has managed to bounce back very well after spending time in jail with the success of his new album, healthier relationship and choosing peace over drama. It seems like for this change is for good this time around as the singer is now 25 and really thinking about his future and trying to drop that “bad/thug” label. Check out the videos, divided into three parts, of Breezy’s interview. He just reminded everyone why we fell in love with him in the first place.
