The Baka Boyz first made their mark in Los Angeles radio in 1992 at Power 106 with their creation of Friday Nite Flavas. Since that time they have continued to influentially impact the hip hop music industry. Their raw talent and passion for originality gave birth not only to live mixing in Los Angeles, but to the inception of The World Famous Roll Call. After dominating the ratings in afternoons and the coveted morning show slot at Power for seven years, the duo headed north to wake up listeners every morning at KMEL San Francisco. Eric & Nick’s sharp eye for talent has opened the doors for many to pass through and their dedication to producing a quality show has allowed them to continue to break down barriers in radio. From producing hip hop classics like “Pistol Grip Pump” to hosting the nationally syndicated “Hip Hop Master Mix”, which broadcasts on over fifty stations from coast to coast, The Baka Boyz have established themselves as hip hop radio gurus. Because they are the architects of the new sound of broadcasting, many have attempted to duplicate the blueprint they have created.
